The Hoops have just appointed Neil Lennon on an interim basis on a deal until the end of the season following Brendan Rodgers’ departure, but the managerial hot-seat at Parkhead could be up for grabs once again in the summer.
However, if Lennon is replaced by the Celtic hierarchy, he won’t be replaced by his compatriot O’Neill, who seems more than content working on the international circuit.
O’Neill was previously strongly linked with the Scotland job before Alex McLeish was appointed last year, and speaking via the Sun, he said: “I’m under contract here, I’ve a job to do here.
“I was a little bit surprised at the timing of it – Brendan’s done an amazing job at Celtic to win seven trophies out of seven, and to do domestically what he’s done, it’s been phenomenal.
“He obviously felt it was the right time to go back to the Premier League.
“Leicester’s a very attractive job, so I’m sure he’ll do an equally good job there.
“Neil was available, he knows Celtic, so I think it’s a good fit at this minute in time for them.”
Do you think Lennon is the right man to take Celtic towards the Holy Grail of ten consecutive Premiership titles?
Or could a candidate similar to O’Neill be in the frame come June?
