With Rangers back in the Scottish Premiership next season, there undoubtedly will be keen interest in taking over as manager of Celtic Football Club when the current incumbent Ronny Deila leaves in the summer. The return of Old Firm battles will raise the profile of the game there.

The status of Northern Ireland-born managers is now so high that three of them - former Celtic boss and fan favourite, Neil Lennon, current NI international manager, Michael O'Neill and Brendan Rodgers, formerly of Liverpool - are cited as contenders for the job. Any one of them would be up to the task of steering the club to further glories.
