Neil Lennon in shock link to Aberdeen as he leads 5 Celts in top 8 names for the job

Scott Brown is likely to be thrown into the managerial deep end alongside fellow former Celtic player Barry Robson who is currently working with the youth set up.

On Tuesday Aberdeen have a catch up game against last placed St. Johnstone with 3 points an absolute must for both clubs.

It is likely that Robson will be on the side lines with Broony continuing his role as a player coach, or he could yet hang up his boots and move to the dugout himself.

Jim Goodwin who has St. Mirren playing some creative football for a club that habitually struggles is a standout among the other teams, much like Steve Clarke at Kilmarnock he is punching far above his weight with what he has at hand.

Jack Ross who was unceremoniously sacked from Hibernian just before the League Cup final could also return to management, and tops the list with betting site bettingodds.com

The list continues.

So among the former Celts we have Neil Lennon at 5-1 with William Hill, Robson at 6-1, Broony at 6-1, Gordon Strachan at 8-1 and Paul Lambert at 10-1.

Broony as Captain and Lennon as manager is a combination that has worked in times of crisis before, of course when Lennon came back to Paradise for his second stint after Rodgers left the club were 8 points clear with a run in dotted with difficult ties starting with Hearts away.

Of course Celtic won the League with an improved tally and won the Scottish Cup as well.

Lennon was sacked on the 24th of February, nearly a year ago, we heard that he was looking for a job down south recently and the job would no doubt appeal to him.

All eyes will swing to Aberdeen midweek to see how Broony and Robson deal with the Saints, past that, there are a host of fixtures between now and the 5th of March when Aberdeen travel to Ibrox, maybe with Scott Brown and Neil Lennon in charge either side of the white line.
