Celtic have made contact with former Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre.
That’s according to a report from Football Insider, with a Hoops source informing them the club has put the feelers out to the 63-year-old over possibly taking on the vacant post.
This comes after Eddie Howe’s representative revealed that the former Bournemouth boss isn’t planning to return to management until the summer.
Favre has been out of work since December and is considered a genuine contender to replace Neil Lennon.

Transfer Tavern take
When it comes to both Favre and Howe, we think there is a standout contender for the Hoops.
Howe has had previous experience of leading a successful rebuild, with the Englishman taking Bournemouth from League Two to the Premier League in the space of six seasons.
He’s also 20 years Favre’s junior, so in the long run, could be the smarter option.
