The Preston North End boss is being tipped as a possible Brendan Rodgers successor at Celtic.
Preston North End fans are reacting after Alex Neil distanced himself from the Celtic managerial vacancy.
Neil, who is currently overseeing a late Lilywhites push for the Championship play-offs, has been mooted as a possible successor to Brendan Rodgers at Celtic Park.
Neil Lennon recently took on the role on an interim basis, although it is unclear at this stage whether or not the 47-year-old will be hired full-time.
But speaking to The Scottish Sun this week, Neil insisted he has had no thoughts about leaving Preston for Celtic or any other club.
And the following PNE fans are fairly happy with what the Scot has had to say…
Why would he want to leave #pnefc to manage in a pub league? Talk about a backward step— W23PNE (@kscott706) 8 March 2019

Neil made his name as a manager at Hamilton Academical, whom he led into Scotland’s top flight in 2014 before overseeing the club’s first away win at Celtic in 76 years.
The 37-year-old later achieved another promotion, this time at Norwich, but was sacked towards the end of the club’s first season back in the Championship and took the reins at Deepdale shortly afterwards.
Preston fans – would Neil be a good fit for Celtic?
