Celtic betting update: Moyes emerges as new favourite, five managers become clear frontrunners

David Moyes

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, after he took charge of his final match on Sunday, 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...

Neil Lennon: Former Celtic boss Lennon is available having left Bolton Wanderers in March, and could be in line for a return to Glasgow. The 44-year-old won three league titles during his time in charge of Celtic between 2010 and 2014, and having also played for the club, he remains a popular figure at Celtic Park. Now around 4/1, Lennon is clearly one of the frontrunners for the job right now.

Paul Lambert: Another ex-Celtic midfielder, Lambert is also available as his Blackburn contract ends this summer. With 273 games and 19 goals for the Bhoys, Lambert was something of a club hero during his playing days, and despite struggling at Aston Villa, could be welcomed back to Celtic with open arms. A steady manager who impressed at Norwich, Lambert may not be the most exciting appointment, but at 2/1 he appears to be right in the mix.

Brendan Rodgers: Northern Irishman Rodgers will be looking to get back into management this summer having left Liverpool in October, and after former club Swansea appointed Francesco Guidolin permanently, the Celtic job may be the biggest one available for Rodgers. It may be seen as a step down from Liverpool to Celtic, but as he also sits at 2/1, he could be one of the most exciting appoints Celtic could possibly make.

Roy Keane: The Manchester United legend ended his playing career with Celtic, and has been strongly tipped to return as manager in recent years. Currently assisting Martin O'Neill with the Republic of Ireland national team, Keane could return to club management after Euro 2016 this summer. Also at 2/1, Keane is one of five leading candidates for the Celtic job, and has the aggression that many Bhoys fans want to see.

The favourite - David Moyes: The new favourite for the job is ex-Celtic defender Moyes, who has been out of work since leaving Real Sociedad in November. A 6/4 shot right now, the former Manchester United boss is looking to rebuild his reputation as a manager, and heading back to Celtic could be the perfect move for him this summer.
