Paul Lambert hot favourite in Celtic manager marketby Jack Kitson / 29 April 2016, 09:45Tweet
Within minutes of Blackburn Rovers announcing the news that Paul Lambert would leave Ewood Park at the end of the season, the Scot was installed as the new favourite for the Celtic job.
Lambert can today (Friday) be found as short as 1/2 (Betfair) to return to his former club in the summer, replacing boss the departing Ronny Deila in the dugout.
Lambert has spoken of his desire to make a rapid return to management, and it comes as no surprise to see him linked with the Scottish giants, who are on the verge of winning the SPL title for the fifth successive season.
Lambert spent a whopping eight years at Celtic in his playing days, hoisting four SPL titles, three FA Cups, and two League Cups. The 46-year-old ventured into management in 2015 shortly after leaving Celtic, with Livingston, before going on to have spells at Colchester, Norwich, Aston Villa, and then Rovers.
Celtic could soon be added to that list, however Lambert faces competition from the likes of David Moyes, Malky Mackay, Michael O'Neill, and Brendan Rodgers in the Next Celtic Manager Market.
