Former Chelsea boss surprise new favourite for Celtic job

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 21 May 2019, 10:09

Celtic head into the Scottish Cup Final needing a win over Hearts to complete an unprecedented treble-treble.

Interim boss Neil Lennon, who replaced Brendan Rodgers in February, is the manager tasked with securing a haul of three trophies for the third successive season.

Lennon has already won the title - for the third time in his managerial career - while Brendan Rodgers lifted the League Cup earlier in the season, and previously the double-treble.

Lennon is currently a 7/2 shot to be given the job on a permanent basis, as is the out-of-work David Moyes who briefly topped the next Celtic manager market on Monday, before Andre Villas-Boas (AVB) emerged out of nowhere.

The Portuguese coach was last seen over in China at Shanghai SIPG with whom he managed for a year through to November 2017.

He quit to take a break from management and race in the 2018 Dakar Rally, then the off-road rally from Baja TT to Can-Am Maverick X3.

AVB previously had a short-lived spell at the helm of Chelsea - he was 33-years-old when he was appointed - who went on to win a miraculous Champions League and FA Cup double under Roberto Di Matteo.

A spell at Spurs followed, before he settled in Russia with Zenit, claiming the league, cup and Super Cup during his two years at the helm.

AVB’s most successful tenure was undoubtedly the year he spent at Porto, with whom he led to a stunning league, cup, and Europa League treble - going unbeaten domestically.

Jose Mourinho’s former assistant has now been cut from 25/1 to just 6/5 to return to the dugout with Celtic this summer.

Mourinho has also been linked with the Scottish giants, although he’s drifted way out to 40/1 having previously been priced at just 2/1.
