It would have been a surprise if Villas-Boas had ended his football sabbatical to move to Celtic in all honesty. Also, Celtic might not have been keen on taking on a manager who has been out of the game.

Candidates for the job keep dropping out. Therefore, it seems more likely that interim manager Neil Lennon may well be appointed the next Celtic boss.

There is still time for another manager to be appointed, should that be what the Celtic board decide to do. However, the Hoops are back in Champions League action in July. Therefore, an appointment will have to be made soon.

At the moment, all signs look to be pointing to Lennon.
