It has been a bad day for Neil Lennon with the manager leaving his position as Bolton Wanderers boss but the bookies expect the Northern Irishman to land on his feet.

He has been installed as 3/1 joint-favourite to be appointed as Ronny Deila's replacement at Celtic, a club where Lennon won three league titles in-a-row before quitting in the summer of 2014. But like many Old Firm managers before him - Alex McLeish and Gordon Strachan spring to mind - he was unable to replicate his SPL success in England, with Lennon leaving Bolton rooted to the bottom of the Championship and 11 points from safety.

Alan Stubbs and Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill are the other managers priced at 3/1 while former Man United boss David Moyes can be backed at 8/1.

Deila remains in charge for the moment though, with Celtic enjoying a one-point at the top of the SPL with a game in hand over Aberdeen.
