Steve Clarke has now taken over as the favourite to be the next manager of Celtic following Roy Keane’s decision to remain as Republic of Ireland assistant manager, according to the Daily Record.
Clarke has not been involved in the football since his dismissal from West Bromwich Albion in December. If Clarke become the manger of Celtic it will only be the second managerial post that he has held.
Despite this however the former Scottish international has a vast amount of experience, which he has learned as assistant to Jose Mourinho and Kenny Dalglish.
The former Cardiff City manager Malky Makay remains second favourite for the role. Other contenders include out of work Owen Coyle and David Moyes.
One possible outsider could be Henrik Larsson who has been voted as Celtics greatest foreign player, who is third on their all time top goalscorers list. Larsson is currently managing Falkenbergs FF, who are currently in 11th place, three points away from relegation. The FAI are expected to release a statement later today.
