Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that he would be interested in taking over the vacant managerial job at Norwich, thus accepting for the first time that the speculation linking him with the English outfit are true. Lennon has long been linked with the managerial job at Norwich, but he has resisted the lure to stay at Celtic. Now, though, he seems ready to come to English football after winning the league title with the Scottish outfit without much opposition in the last few years. Lennon is aware that moving to Norwich will provide him with a bigger challenge, although it would mean lesser trophies.
The absence of ranges from the Scottish Premier league has left a major void in terms of competition for Celtic. If Lennon comes to Norwich, then he will have to manage his first season at the club in the championship. The club were relegated after two seasons in the Premier league. They finished in the final relegation spots, which was confirmed in the last two weekends of the season. Despite the absence of Premier league football at Norwich, Lennon says that he would be ready to manage the club. This has opened the possibility of an exit in the summer.
Lennon may think twice about leaving Celtic because of the Champions League offer that are still present with the Scottish outfit. Their transfer budget in the summer could go a long way into determining the presence of the manager, who has received both criticism and plaudits in the summer. Celtic won the league title with a record number of points, but they were unable to progress in the Scottish cup final. Further, the Champions League campaign has also been a disappointment this time around after reaching the last 16 stage in the previous season.
