Loads of Celtic fans would like to see the club make an ambitious move for RB Salzburg boss Marco Rose to permanently replace Brendan Rodgers.
Neil Lennon has taken charge of the club until the end of the season, but many supporters are already taking a long-term view of the situation and feel the club can bring in a more inspiring character to continue the incredible success that Rodgers brought to the club.
A lot of that will depend on how Lennon does in the tail-end of this campaign, but there’s no doubt in supporters’ eyes that he should not be the default choice to permanently become boss at Celtic Park.
Many names have been mentioned in relation to the job – Steve Clarke and Jack Ross are two Scottish names suggested by some – but Marco Rose has emerged as the dream appointment.
Delivering league success to Salzburg last season, the innovative manager also brought the Austrians to the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League last season and currently the last 16 of the competition this season on a lower budget than Celtic.
They of course have also beaten Celtic twice this term.
The question is though – his is stock already so high in European football that he is beyond the reach of the Hoops?
These supporters took to Twitter after Rodgers’ departure to share their thoughts…
Who next for Celtic full time? My choice is Marco Rose at Salzburg, said it in January.

Red Bull Salzburg manager Marco Rose should be our long term target to take over.

Only replacement for Rodgers should be Marco Rose and his backroom team!

Get talk of the likes of Steve Clarke in the bin immediately and get everything fucked into bringing Marco Rose in.

Marco Rose or Pavel Vrba would be a dream signing. But I'm expecting Steve Clark or Neil Lennon ????

Getting Lennon as a caretaker to finish the season smoothly would be good. But under no circumstances should we give him the job permanently. Go for Marco Rose or AVB
