Potential consequences of Celtic appointing Alex Neil

Celtic have been extremely impressive since Neil Lennon took charge at Parkhead, having picked up two wins in their last two games in all competitions.

The Hoops will have their sights set on securing a third successive treble after enjoying a successful time of things under Brendan Rodgers, with a big managerial decision set to come at the end of the season.

It appears as if the Glasgow side have their eye on a possible permanent successor for Brendan Rodgers, despite Lennon being interim boss, as according to The Daily Mail, Celtic are considering Preston North End boss Alex Neil.

Alex Neil has ensured constant progression during his time at Preston North End, as well as developing a number of players into stars, so he could be the ideal candidate for the job.

Of course, appointing Alex Neil may not be of interest to everyone, so here are the potential consequences of the Preston boss rocking up at Parkhead in the summer…

PLAYERS DEVELOP INTO STARS

Neil Lennon has a reputation for developing ordinary players into stars having worked wonders at Preston North End, with the likes of Ben Pearson, Alan Browne and Callum Robinson all reaching new levels.

He manages to get the very best out of his players, both on and off the field, which has played a big part in the Lilywhites’ rise in the English Championship.

So, the Hoops could soon find themselves with plenty more stars at their disposal as Neil has proven that he can get the best out of certain players, with his man management and tactics proving invaluable until this point.

NEIL LENNON UNHAPPY

Neil Lennon will inevitably have his sights set on securing the permanent job at the end of the season.

Indeed, it’s safe to say that he’s certainly impressed since taking over from Brendan Rodgers on an interim basis, but his future could all depend on whether he manages to secure the treble.

Of course, Lennon would be extremely unhappy if Neil was appointed at the end of the season as all of his hard work would have been for nothing, so Neil’s potential arrival could rustle a few feathers.
