Lennon would welcome Celtic return

Neil Lennon and David Moyes

Neil Lennon and David Moyes could both be considered by Celtic

Neil Lennon would welcome a return to Celtic as the Glasgow club’s manager.

With Ronny Deila stepping down at the end of the season, the 44-year-old Lennon would be open to speaking to the board about coming back to Celtic Park.

Lennon told BBC Scotland he does not regret his decision to leave two ears ago but said he is more experienced now and knows what the job takes.

But he expects there to be a long list of candidates for the job, which he considers one of the game’s biggest.

David Moyes, the former Everton and Manchester United who left Real Sociedad in November, is also likely to be in Celtic’s thinking but is believed to be attracted to the vacancy at Aston Villa.

A third former Celtic player, Malky Mackay, who was sacked by Wigan Athletic in April, has recently spoken about the attraction of the job with the Scottish Premiership leaders.
