Ronny Deila is leaving Celtic this summer - who could replace him?

Last week, Celtic confirmed that manager Ronny Deila will leave the club this summer, as his rolling contract will not be extended.

The Norwegian arrived from Stromsgodset in 2014, and whilst he won the Scottish League Cup and Premiership last season, his second term in Glagsow hasn't been quite so successful.

The Bhoys will still edge towards the title in unconvincing fashion, but Deila oversaw disastrous exits from the Champions League and Europa League, but the Scottish Cup defeat to Old Frim rivals Rangers - currently in the second tier - has seen Deila lose his job.

Fans are already wondering who could replace Deila this summer, and bookmakers have been pricing up odds for some of the frontrunners. With odds supplied by Oddschecker, here are some of the main names being discussed today...

Martin O'Neill: Former Celtic boss O'Neill is currently in charge of the Republic of Ireland national team, and is being touted for a return to Glasgow. The 64-year-old won three league titles, three Scottish Cups and one Scottish League Cup, whilst he also took the Bhoys to the UEFA Cup final in 2003. After a five-year spell at the club, he remains popular with the fans, and is now down to 12/1 to return.

Brendan Rodgers: The ex-Liverpool manager has been out of work since leaving Anfield in October, and could seek a return to management this summer. The Northern Irishman would be a popular choice at Celtic given his work with both Swansea and Liverpool, but he has drifted out to as far as 16/1 today, making him seem somewhat unlikely to take the job.

Paul Lambert: A former Celtic hero during his playing days, Lambert is currently in charge of Blackburn Rovers, but could leave the club over confusion surrounding the club's budget for this summer. An impressive spell with Norwich City led to an underwhelming time at Aston Villa, but the Scot knows Celtic inside out, and at 8/1 he looks to be one of the frontrunners.

Gary Caldwell: Another former Celtic player currently managing in the English Football League, Wigan boss Caldwell has almost guided the Latics to promotion from League One despite his relative inexperience. The 34-year-old made 150 appearances for Celtic as a player and would again know the club inside out, but despite his odds being just 9/1, his inexperience may make him an unlikely candidate.

The favourite - David Moyes: Unsurprisingly, the favourite is former Celtic defender Moyes. Looking to rebuild his career after poor spells with Manchester United and Real Sociedad, the Scot is the odds-on favourite and would be the choice of many fans given his reputation and previous success in the Premier League - and he is the odds-on favourite at 4/6.
