Could Brendan Rodgers Return to Celtic?

Ange Postecoglou landed a domestic treble with Celtic this season, but the Australian has now departed the Old Firm club to take charge at Tottenham Hotspur. It means that the Scottish champions are searching for a replacement, and perhaps we will see Brendan Rodgers return to Celtic Park. Football betting sites are now pricing up the candidates likely to replace the popular Australian.

Rodgers has been out of work since leaving Leicester City on 2 April, although the Northern Irishman was previously successful with the Foxes. Before that, he was also able to land plenty of silverware with Celtic, including back-to-back SPL titles in 2017 and 2018. Indeed, the former Liverpool boss landed the treble in both of those seasons.

Celtic supporters might have mixed feelings about the 50-year-old who abruptly jumped ship when Leicester came calling for his services, although there's little doubt that Rodgers knows what's required to be successful north of the border, and he would inherit arguably a stronger team than the one he had five seasons ago.

Maresca Could Replace Postecoglou

Enzo Maresca is now among the favourites with the best betting sites to become the next permanent manager of Celtic, with the Italian having been linked to the vacant position in the past. He’s currently manager of the Manchester City Elite Development squad, which indicates that he has a huge pedigree.

Maresca had a successful playing career that saw him win the 2001/02 Serie A title with Juventus, with the 43-year-old having been assistant manager at West Ham during the 2018/19 English Premier League season. The coach is highly regarded by Pep Guardiola at City and it’s plausible that he’ll be interested in taking charge at Celtic.

There are reports that Maresca is under Celtic consideration as a viable alternative to Rodgers, with the Italian having briefly left City to take charge of Parma before returning to the Etihad Stadium last year. We've previously seen Mikel Arteta leave City's backroom staff to be a success at Arsenal, and the same thing might happen here.

Moyes Might Switch from West Ham to Celtic

David Moyes has restored his managerial reputation at West Ham and could be on the verge of winning European silverware with the London club. However, there are rumours that the English Premier League outfit could be looking for a change of manager, with that potentially opening the door for the Scot to head north of the border.

Moyes has regularly been linked to the Celtic manager's position when it has become available, and perhaps the timing will work out for someone who has an impressive managerial track record when it comes to spells with Everton and West Ham United. He will also have learnt a lot from his time with clubs such as Manchester United and Sunderland, with the Scot clearly understanding what is required to be successful with Celtic, a team he started his playing career at in the early 1980s.

The Celtic board might take a watching brief and see whether Moyes keeps hold of the reins at West Ham next season. His potential sacking could mean that talks take place between the two parties and Moyes potentially enjoys a homecoming of sorts.

Is Potter a Potential Celtic Manager Candidate?

A few months ago, the name of Graham Potter wouldn't have been linked to the Celtic manager's position, but life comes at you fast. The Englishman has left Brighton and Chelsea in the space of a year and is now considering his next role, with the Glasgow club surely interested in someone with a strong pedigree when it comes to coaching.

Potter took the scenic route to the top by starting out largely with Swedish club Ostersunds, with the former Stoke player then taking charge at Swansea City where he created an attacking and vibrant team. He then replaced Chris Hughton at Brighton, turning the Seagulls from relegation scrappers to a top-half side, before being unable to resist the lure of Chelsea.

While things didn't work out at Stamford Bridge, it felt as though there were a lot of signings thrust on the manager and perhaps Celtic would offer him a chance to rebuild his reputation and take the club into the Champions League where they could make an impact.

Marsch Linked to Vacant Celtic Role

Jesse Marsch has been prominent in the betting to take charge at Celtic, with the American having recently left Leeds United. He was initially successful at Elland Road during the 2021/22 season when steering the Yorkshire outfit to safety on the final day of the campaign, although the board acted decisively after a relatively poor start to the campaign.

Marsch can point to the fact that Leeds were still relegated after he left, with the manager having previously taken charge of Red Bull Salzburg and RB Leipzig. He was also close to being appointed as the next manager of Southampton last winter although failed to agree personal terms with another relegated outfit.

This candidate has previously been linked to the Celtic manager's role and was glowing in his appraisal of a club with this sort of stature. Perhaps we will see Marsch come to the fore and be interviewed for the vacant role, with this chest-beating coach likely to appeal to the passionate fanbase at Celtic Park.

Could Steve Clarke Replace Postecoglou?

Steve Clarke steered Scotland to Euro 2020 and he will be hoping that the team are now able to qualify for Euro 2024 next summer. Having recently beaten Spain in qualifying, the omens are good for a national team who are seemingly on the rise despite not being able to qualify for the 2022 World Cup after losing to Ukraine in the play-offs.

It would be a surprise if Clarke was prepared to forsake his international team duties to take charge at Celtic at this juncture, although perhaps the lure of the Old Firm club might be too strong for a highly-experienced coach who appears to be on to a good thing with his role at the SFA.

The 57-year-old has nationality on his side for this role, while he has also been the assistant manager of Chelsea, West Ham and Liverpool. Stints at West Brom and Reading were largely difficult for the Scot, but the way he transformed the fortunes of Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership led to Clarke being given the nod by the Scottish FA for the national team job and it might well be the case that Celtic have already reached out to him with regard to replacing Postecoglou.

Scott Brown Might Covet Celtic Role

Brown is a Celtic legend, with the former midfielder having turned out for the Hoops on 407 occasions. He was hugely successful as a player and captain for this Old Firm club and would dearly love to manage them at some point. The big question is whether it would be too early for the 37-year-old who wouldn't want to tarnish his reputation among the fanbase after previously doing so well as a player.

Brown was a big leader for this team and won no less than 10 Scottish Premiership titles with Celtic, with the midfielder in the Team of the Year on six occasions. He recently cut his managerial teeth when taking charge of Fleetwood and had a relatively successful first season in charge of the Cod Army, and the chance to leave the League One outfit and return to Celtic Park might prove irresistible.
