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

Last month, 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 may have won the title in somewhat unconvincing fashion, but Deila oversaw disastrous exits from the Champions League and Europa League, and the Scottish Cup defeat to Old Firm rivals Rangers - currently in the second tier - has seen Deila lose his job.

Fans are 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...

Paul Lambert: Former Celtic midfielder Lambert will be out of work having confirmed he will leave Blackburn Rovers, despite only taking the job at Ewood Park in November. The Scot didn't cover himself in glory at Aston Villa, but his fine work at Norwich would give Celtic fans some encouragement. Once a favourite, Lambert is now 10/1, and his odds are drifting.

Neil Lennon: Lennon left Celtic back in the summer of 2014, but his departure from Bolton Wanderers has sparked rumours of a shock return to the Celtic Park dugout. The 44-year-old remains a popular figure at Celtic, and his odds have been cut to around 6/1 today, making him the fourth favourite for the Bhoys job.

Brendan Rodgers: Rodgers has been out of work since losing his job at Liverpool back in October, and could be tempted by a move back into management this summer. With the job at his former club Swansea now unavailable, Rodgers may not have many more options, and Celtic could land a huge coup by landing the Northern Irishman. Currently the 5/2 third favourite, Rodgers could be a legitimate candidate for Celtic.

Malky Mackay: A former Celtic defender, Mackay has been out of work since leaving Wigan over a year ago, and may be looking for a route back into management. The Scot impressed in charge of Watford and Cardiff before struggling at Wigan, and Bhoys fans may have higher expectations than appointing Mackay - who is now around 10/1 for the job.

The favourite - Roy Keane: Irishman Keane ended his playing career at Celtic, and has been heavily linked with the Celtic job over the last two years. Currently assisting Martin O'Neill with the Republic of Ireland national team, Keane may be looking for a return to club management this summer. Currently at 2/1 for the job, Keane is the clear favourite to replace Deila right now.
