YET another surprise candidate has emerged with the Celtic manager’s job taking another bizarre spin this weekend.

According to reports from across the border, the Hoops are looking at Swansea boss Graham Potter as a possible long-term successor to Brendan Rodgers.

Over the past few days, Newcastle gaffer Rafa Benitez, ex-Chelsea and Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas, Belgium supremo Roberto Martinez and Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill have been linked with the post.

Neil Lennon, who accepted the post on an interim capacity following the rapid departure of Rodgers to Leicester City in February, has insisted he is focusing on the team on the run-in to a potentially-historic campaign and has said it’s “all noise”, as CQN reported during the week.

Now the latest name to emerge is Championship side Swansea’s Graham Potter, according to the Sun.

They point out the 43-year-old coach has brought through young players at the club and also has European experience in Sweden with Ostersunds, who beat Arsenal at the Emirates in the Europa League.

The Welsh side currently sit 13th in the table with 16 wins from 41 games.
