Celtic interim boss John Kennedy is under consideration to succeed former manager Neil Lennon on a full-time basis.
That’s according to a report from Give Me Sport, who have had information revealed to them regarding the Hoops’ hunt for a new boss.
Kennedy in with a chance of Celtic job
They claim that the 37-year-old is in with a chance of landing the position permanently with Celtic looking at a ‘traditional approach’.
Celtic’s ‘traditional approach’ is thought to be based on individuals who understand the Parkhead role, with Kennedy a possible cheap option.
Who do you want the next Celtic boss to be?
Kennedy has taken charge of three games as interim boss, picking up five points from a possible nine.
Transfer Tavern take
With Kennedy having no senior managerial experience prior to his role as Celtic caretaker, we feel that it would be a huge risk appointing him on a full-time basis.
It’s not as if the Hoops have become a different side under his guidance. They’ve scored twice in 270 minutes of football and failed to beat eighth-placed Dundee United.
To us, we think they need to steer clear of Kennedy when it comes to the long run.
