Celtic: Sky Sports journalist names surprise contender to replace Neil Lennon

Celtic: Sky Sports journalist names surprise contender to replace Neil Lennon -Celtic News

Sky Sports journalist Jim White has revealed that Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez is one of the men in the frame to replace Neil Lennon as Celtic manager.

White reveals hand

The Irish tactician walked away from his position at Parkhead after his second stint as manager, having won a total of four Scottish Premiership titles and two Scottish FA Cups (Transfermarkt).

This came after several months of protests from the Green Brigade after a woeful 2020/21 campaign, which has seen Celtic slip far behind arch-rivals Rangers and pretty much write off any chances of winning 10-in-a-row.

There's no way you can name all ten obscure Celtic players! First up, who is this?

Because of Lennon’s resignation, Scotsman White has highlighted three names that could be in with a should of the Celtic job – including a surprising contender, the manager of Belgium, Martinez.

Martinez, the former boss of Everton, accumulated a points-per-game average of 1.56 from 143 matches with the Blues but has amassed a hugely improved record in his 51 games as the manager of Belgium (Transfermarkt).

Transfer Tavern Verdict

Celtic are certainly showing some impressive ambition if they have Martinez on their radar.

Mass changes have begun to take place so far, with John Kennedy taking charge until the end of the season and with Dominic McKay taking over Peter Lawwell’s role as chief executive in the summer. At this stage, we don’t think any decision will be made until McKay is in his new role.

With this in mind, time will tell whether the temptation of Scottish football will attract the Spaniard.
