Celtic already in talks with Neil Lennon about returning to the club

With Leicester City being granted permission to speak to Brendan Rodgers, Celtic will be desperate to find a replacement should he decide to leave.

And, according to a report by the Daily Record, it appears the Scottish Premiership champions have already acted.

It is claimed they have turned to former manager Neil Lennon as a potential successor until the end of the season.

The Northern Irishman, who is now a free agent after leaving Hibernian, last managed Celtic five years ago and was hugely successful during his time at Parkhead.

He won three Scottish Premiership titles in his time with the club, as well as two Scottish Cups.

Lennon is believed to be considered a ‘strong option’ and could see his time at Celtic Park be extended beyond the end of the season if he impresses the club’s hierarchy.

The Verdict:

If the reports are anything to go by, Celtic look set to lose Rodgers to Leicester imminently and therefore have needed to act quickly.

And, Lennon could be an excellent person to bring into the club at such short notice and could help to keep the wheels in motion as they look to continue their quest for that elusive 10 in a row.

Whether he remains beyond the end of the season remains to be seen, however, there are not many people in management that know the club as well as the Northern Irishman.
