Celtic fans appear to be very interested in the idea of appointing Andre Villas-Boas as manager of the club this summer.

The Scottish Sun reported earlier today that he has been installed as the second favourite by Sky Bet to take permanent charge of the Hoops, behind current boss Neil Lennon, who remains the top pick for the bookmaker.

The former Porto and Chelsea boss is currently unemployed after a short spell in China he walked away from to, rather bizarrely, compete as a rally driver in the famous Dakar Rally.

Nonetheless, he has the kind of credentials that Celtic would surely be interested in when thinking about the future direction of the club.

After a long association with Jose Mourinho as a coach and assistant manager he eventually hit the big time after an extraordinary season at Porto.

In his first season in charge there he led them to an ‘Invicibles’ season in the Portuguese top-flight, also winning the national cup competition and the UEFA Europa League. In doing so he became the youngest ever manager to win a European competition at 33 years old.

Frustrating spells at Chelsea and Spurs followed but he again found success at FC Zenit, winning the league in 2014/15.

Plenty of fans would love to see the appointment happen, taking to Twitter over the last 24 hours to share their thoughts…
