Blackburn fans react on Twitter to Paul Lambert to Celtic claims

Blackburn boss Paul Lambert has been linked with the vacant Celtic post.

Blackburn Rovers manager Paul Lambert has been linked with the vacant Celtic position.

Celtic boss Ronny Deila announced this week he would be stepping down at the end of the season, issuing a statement via the club website, days after losing to Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final.

The Mirror report Celtic's board are considering Lambert as a potential successor, amongst other names like David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers.

Lambert unlike those two is already in a job, appointed by Blackburn earlier this season, although The Mail reported earlier this month the Scotsman was frustrated with behind the scenes goings on at the Championship side.

He is much admired at Celtic, making more than 250 appearances for the club as a player.

Lambert's managerial star burned brightly after guiding Norwich City from League One to the Premier League and keeping them there, but then decided to leave for Aston Villa.

His spell at Villa proved overall very poor and he was sacked last year, although they have been far worse without him, relegated to the Championship.

At Blackburn he has had to cope with selling star player Jordan Rhodes on deadline day, and the club sit 17th in the table of 24 teams, clear of relegation.

Rovers fans have had a mixed reaction to rumours of his exit, here is a look at what they had to say via Twitter...
