JOHAN MJALLBY has quit as Neil Lennon’s assistant at Bolton – because of family circumstances.
And Alan Thompson, who was sacked as first team coach in June 2012 when the Irishman was Celtic boss, has been linked with a sensational return.
Mjallby joined Lennon at Wanderers in October 2014 after also working alongside him at Parkhead.
The 44-year-old is likely to return to Sweden, leaving the post after the Championship side’s 2-1 win over Wolves on Saturday.
Thompson and Lennon are said to have made up after their “differences” at the Hoops and the 41-year-old former midfielder, who was brought to Glasgow by Martin O’Neill in 2000, is up for grabs after leaving his role as development squad coach at Birmingham City in October last year.
The 41-year-old, who made 198 appearances for Bolton during his time as a player, would be a hugely popular figure among supporters.
Lennon will still have coach Gary Parker to help out, but he hopes to make a quick appointment with the club struggling in the league anchored second bottom with only three points.
