Neil Lennon’s straightforward response when asked about the Celtic job

Ronny Deila will leave Celtic at the end of the season.

Former Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon said on the Matchday Live with Fletch & Sav show on BT Sport 1 on Saturday morning (broadcast from 10am, April 23) that he is open to becoming the new Celtic manager.

Ronny Deila is in charge of the Scottish Premiership giants at the moment, but the Norwegian will leave the Glasgow outfit at the end of the season.

Lennon is without a managerial job at the moment, having left English side Bolton last month. The former Northern Ireland international midfielder has revealed that he is ready to return to Celtic Park.

“I have done the job before, it’s a plum job, one of the biggest clubs in Britain," said Lennon on the Matchday Live with Fletch & Sav show on BT Sport 1 on Saturday morning (broadcast from 10am, April 23) when asked if he would be interested in becoming the new Celtic manager (see video below). "If the board wanted to speak, then there is no question about the interest."

Lennon was in charge of Celtic from 2010 to 2014 and was hugely successful as the club’s manager.

The former Nottingham Forest midfielder won the league title in the Scottish top flight three years in a row and the Scottish Cup twice.

The football that the Bhoys played under Lennon was also quite entertaining, and one suspects that Celtic fans will welcome him with open arms.
