Ex-Liverpool boss, Former Celtic chief & EURO-2016 bound man in line to replace Deila

Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill, former Celtic boss Neil Lennon and ex Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers are all in the running to succeed Ronny Deila at Celtic Park, according to the Belfast Telegraph.

O’Neill will be leading his Northern Irish side into the European Championships this summer and won’t be available until after the tournament, but both Rodgers and Lennon are without jobs and  thought to be on the shortlist for the job.

When asked if he would be interested in returning as manager by Sky Sports (via the Express) former Bolton manager Lennon hinted that he’d be open to the idea, and he would be a firm favourite with the fans if he was indeed approached to return after successfully managing the Hoops both to domestic titles and success in the Champions League.

Rodgers meanwhile has been out of a job since being sacked by Liverpool back in October, but he, like bookies’ favourite David Moyes, would prefer to return to work in England.
