Two men leading the charge to succeed Rodgers at Celtic

Two men leading the charge to succeed Rodgers at Celtic

For the first time in his tenure at Celtic Park, Brendan Rodgers is under pressure. 

The Hoops failed to make the Champions League at the beginning of the season, and now sit in sixth place in the Scottish Premiership after only managing to win three of their opening six games.

This was a side that went unbeaten two seasons ago, and now have already been at the receiving end of a loss twice this season. The former Liverpool boss should be very worried indeed over his future at a club that demands so much.

The possibility of the Northern Irishman being sacked increases with every poor result. In fact, two more losses may be enough for the board to wield the axe. With that being said, if Rodgers were to go, these TWO men would be ideal candidates to replace him:

Neil Lennon

After playing over 200 games for the Scottish giants between 200 and 2007, Neil Lennon took over The Bhoys in 2010 and had four very successful years in Glasgow, winning three Scottish Premierships and two Scottish Cups.

He left in 2014 and went on to manage Bolton, where he had a much less successful stint. However, he has revived his career at Hibernian, winning the Scottish Championship in 2016/17, and a fourth place finish in the Scottish Premiership. He may be due a return to Celtic Park.

Steve Clarke

Six-cap Scotland international Steve Clarke has seemingly managed a lot of clubs, but only one in his homeland, which is his current club Kilmarnock. He took over his boyhood team when they were at the foot of the Scottish Premiership last October and guided them to a fifth place finish in the league. He won a lot of plaudits over his performance last season, and is a contender to succeed Rodgers.
