Neil Lennon has become the joint favourite to land the Celtic job after he parted company with Bolton Wanderers.
Former Hoops boss Lennon joined Bolton in 2014 but the Trotters announced on it’s official website on Tuesday that the 44-year-old had left the club after seven games without a win which leaves them bottom of the table.
The club have just been taken over by a new consortium led by the club’s former striker Dean Holdsworth.
In a short statement the club said: “Bolton Wanderers can announce that the club have today, Tuesday 15 March, parted company with manager Neil Lennon by mutual consent.
“All at Bolton Wanderers would like to thank Neil for his contributions during his time at the club.”
Ronny Deila’s future at Celtic remains uncertain after a disappointing season in Europe, a League Cup exit to Ross County and unconvincing performances in the league.
Reports have suggested that the Celtic board are thinking about a change in the summer and among the favourites for the post according to bookmakers is Northern Ireland’s Michael O’Neill, Hibernian’s Alan Stubbs and former Manchester United boss David Moyes.
