Some Celtic fans have been alerted by Chris Hughton's availability ahead of the summer.
Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to suggest that the club should consider making a move for Chris Hughton after the former Republic of Ireland international was sacked by Brighton following the end of the Premier League season.
Hughton endured a tough campaign with the Seagulls, but managed to ensure that they will be playing top flight football again next year as they finished 17th. But just one day after losing to Manchester City, Hughton left his post.
That has prompted a number of Celtic fans to suggest that the Hoops board should consider a move for the 60-year-old with Neil Lennon's Parkhead future still up in the air at this stage.
Lennon deserves great credit for keeping the Hoops' push for another domestic Treble on track in the wake of Brendan Rodgers' departure. But there appear to be a number of supporters who are keen to see the club avoid making a sentimental decision with Lennon's return still proving to be a slightly underwhelming one.
Some of the performances have been disappointing, particularly at the weekend in the latest Old Firm game. And that has left some supporters believing that Hughton would be a better option than Lennon if they can get him through the door.
The Telegraph has reported that West Brom are hoping to speak to Hughton about the job at the Hawthorns. But if the door remains open for Celtic to make a move, it appears to be an appointment that would be quite popular with plenty of the fans.
Here is what some of the Celtic fans have said in the days following Hughton's exit from the Amex Stadium...

Good coach, thoroughly decent guy.
Got Brighton up and kept them in the Premier League for two seasons, managed ridiculous situations at Newcastle whilst still getting the team to perform.
He'll no doubt have plenty of offers in England.
I'd take Hughton over some of those named for the Celtic job https://t.co/XI0H3CVQzz— Henrik’s Tongue (@HenrikTongue) May 13, 2019
