Plenty of Celtic Fans Are Tipping André Villas-Boas to be Club’s New Manager

Plenty of Celtic Fans Are Tipping André Villas-Boas to be Club’s New Manager

Speculation continues to rage this afternoon surrounding the identity of Celtic‘s next permanent manager – and ex-Chelsea and Spurs boss André Villas-Boas is the latest big name linked with the role on social media.

The Hoops will be looking to appoint a new permanent boss at the end of the current campaign, with Neil Lennon in the hot-seat vacated by Brendan Rodgers until then.

Lennon remains the favourite to take the reins on a long-term basis once this season is over but the Parkhead hierarchy will no doubt be casting an eye over some of the coaching talent available across the continent.

And Villas-Boas is currently out of work, having most recently managed in the Chinese Super League with Shanghai SIPG.

The Portuguese was once Jose Mourinho’s right-hand man and trusted lieutenant, and became the youngest-ever winner of a European competition when he and his Porto team claimed the 2011 Europa League when he was just 33.

Could the 41-year-old be the man to takeover from Brendan Rodgers?

What do you think of the rumours, and who do you think would be best suited to becoming the next Celtic manager?
