Celtic supporters are very interested in reports that Roberto Martinez has been installed as a bookmakers’ favourite to succeed Neil Lennon.

As reported by The Scottish Sun, the Belgium boss is now an odds on choice with Paddy Power to take up the permanent position at Celtic Park come the end of the season.

While not indicative of what might be happening behind the scenes at the Hoops, it is clear that money is being placed on the Spaniard to take up the post.

Currently working alongside former Celtic attacker Shaun Maloney with the Belgian national team, and having direct experience of Scottish football in the past, there are certainly intriguing small links that make the rumours more credible.

Still though, he is currently working with world class players and has a great chance of success at Euro 2020 next summer, so it still all feels a bit far-fetched.

He is undoubtedly a top choice for plenty of fans though, with many taking to Twitter over the last few days to share their thoughts on his potential appointment…

  • Can’t see Martinez being next manager to be honest. More chance of it being Moyes or Lenny before the ones mentioned in the latest rumour rounds. Have to say that of all the ones mentioned so far, the current management team of Lenny, Kennedy and Duff look good to me. Kennedy has been around the first team for a while now. Duff is desperate to do well coaching wise, and Lennon is a more experienced coach now than the one who left us a few years back. Looks like a good mix to me that could work well for the club given time.
