Paul Lambert has sparked speculation on social media that he could be in the running for the Celtic manager’s job, after it was announced he’s to leave Blackburn at the end of the season.
Lambert only took over at the Championship side last November, but according to the BBC, the former Scotland international has activated a clause in his contract that allows him to leave Ewood Park this summer.
His final match in charge will be the match against Reading on May 7.
It was announced just last week that current Celtic boss Ronny Deila is to step down from his role at the end of the campaign too, following the Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Rangers and two disappointing seasons.
The likes of David Moyes, Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon have all been heavily linked with taking over at Parkhead, but the news about Lambert’s position today could mean he becomes a frontrunner.
Paul Lambert will leave Blackburn at the end of the season. Only Derby or Celtic would be jobs he would leave Blackburn for.

The thought of Paul Lambert as Celtic manager does not excite me in the slightest. Blackburns results have also been woeful past 2 months.

Hope Paul Lambert gets a crack at the Celtic job now. Not really liked by Villa fans but he worked within his means. Loved at Celtic aswell
