In a recent column for the Daily Record, Chris Sutton has suggested that Neil Lennon is the best man for the Celtic job if Brendan Rodgers does leave in the coming years as he is continually linked to return to a notable side England. Sutton’s thoughts come ahead of tomorrow’s encounter between Rodgers’ Celtic and Lennon’s Hibernian which promises to be a captivating tie, let’s see what other fans make of the ex-Celtic striker’s thoughts.

These Celtic fans would be against the idea of Lennon returning.
You forgetting how bad the football ended up under Lennon? Dire

Never go back. He has had a lot of lows at Celtic Inverness, Utrecht etc. If Rodgers goes -and I hope he doesn’t- we need someone fresh again with new ideas.

Both a Hibs and a Celtic fan seemed to be in agreeance that he doesn’t need to return to Celtic and that Lennon will look elsewhere after Hibs.
Didn’t Lennon get Celtic to the last 16 of the champions league? Something Rodgers hasn’t done? The rest of what you say is right. He’s nothing to go back for. His next challenge after us will be in England again I’m sure of that.

However, a Norwich fan who has wanted Lennon in the past felt that he would be the perfect man to manage the Bhoys.
I wanted Lennon at Norwich I'm 100% he would have been the right fit after leaving Celtic Bolton was the wrong club at the wrong time and I'm so pleased Neil has proven his worth again would definitely be the right man again for Celtic

Other fans felt it was disrespectful to be discussing this a day before the fixture.
Both managers are happy in their roles so this article doesn’t even have to be written.

Not one of your best Chris. I think we should concentrate on getting the 8th title and i'd say that while I agree with you on how good a fit Lennon is at Celtic, it's a bit unfair on Hibernian to write this.
