Former French international right-back Willy Sagnol will apply for the Celtic manager job this summer, as the club consider a future beyond the reigns of Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

Lennon has been given the job until the end of the season but the Hoops are expected to consider a number of other people for the role before deciding on the future of the former club captain.

The paper say that Sagnol, who had a massively successful playing career with German giants Bayern Munich, is eager to throw his hat into the ring for the position.

The 42-year-old made over 250 appearances for Bayern, winning the UEFA Champions League in 2001 and helping lift five league titles.

As a coach he took charge of Bordeaux in his homeland between 2014 and 2016, eventually becoming assistant to Carlo Ancelotti back in Munich.

His agent Alex McDonald told The Scottish Sun: “Willy is definitely interested in the Celtic job and will apply in the summer.”

The paper reckon he is eager to start a managerial career in Britain and was linked to the Huddersfield job in January.
