I had a lot to think about at the time. The players were absolutely phenomenal for me in my time there. We were on this great journey together. We created a culture which I loved coming into every day. And we were winners.

"We won - we were relentless at it and relentless in our work - and we had success together. So for me to then make the decision to leave them behind was not an easy thing to do. But I felt I had taken it as far as I could in that time. I then had a decision to make about going into a new project at Leicester where there is an ambition there and there are challenges that I would be excited by."

We were clear at the top of the league, we had already won a cup and I felt I was leaving the club in a good state. OK, the timing wasn't ideal for many people but I felt the club was in a really good place, the players' mentality, everything around the club was healthy.

"But, because of how quickly it happened, it was probably difficult for some people to accept. But we've both moved on since then. Celtic moved on and won the treble which was brilliant. Three trebles consecutively, which is incredible.

"And I was able to come into Leicester and assess players while they were under pressure because that's when you can really make judgements. I felt it would give me those last 10 or 11 games of the season to assess what Leicester had and what needed to be done. It gave me the time to prepare for the summer so that we were ready to make a challenge at the start of this season. I think it's worked out well for both parties."
