CELTIC HAVE CONFIRMED that they are still in the process of looking for a new manager despite mounting speculation that Brendan Rodgers has been offered the job of replacing Ronny Deila.

The Scottish champions released a statement today stating they will continue to consider their options having already spoken to a number of candidates.

“The club has been and will be speaking to a number of candidates and we will take our time to go through this process thoroughly and in the proper manner. There is no ‘preferred’ candidate.

“We will continue this process with the aim of identifying a new manager who we believe will deliver success to the club.

“Clearly we will not be able to provide daily updates on this issue. However, our supporters will be the first to know when a new manager has been appointed,” a statement read on the club’s website.

Celtic will be looking to hire a new manager sooner rather than later with their Champions League qualifiers starting in the middle of July.

Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon has also been linked with a return to Parkhead along with Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane, David Moyes and Malky Mackay.
