Report: Neil Lennon holds talks over Celtic job

Former Celtic boss Neil Lennon is a contender for the Celtic job.

The Scottish Sun report former Celtic boss Neil Lennon has held talks over the current vacancy at the club.

The paper claim Lennon flew to Dublin yesterday to meet the club's biggest shareholder Dermot Desmond, who is weighing up a decision over who will replace Ronny Deila.

Lennon is the second manager to have talks this week, following former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.

The two Northern Irish managers are not believed to be the only contenders either, and The Scottish Sun report Desmond is weighing up the club's options and will come to a decision over the weekend.

Rodgers remains favourite with the bookies, and would be the more exciting appointment of the two purely because he is not a manager Celtic have had at the helm before, but on the other hand Lennon is a known commodity who has won trophies with the club.

Lennon, 44, won three Scottish titles as manager and two Scottish Cups, and was voted SPL Manager of the Year in 2011/12.
