We put the question out to our 20k plus followers on Twitter who they would prefer out of the four CURRENT top bookies favourites for the Celtic job.
On Tuesday morning the front runners were (in order):
- Neil Lennon
- Roberto Martinez
- Henrik Larsson
- Marco Rose
So we asked the Celtic fans to give us their choice out of those top four and the results were a little surprising.
Here are the bookes current top four selections for next full time Celtic manager.
Out of the four, who's your guy?

Salzburg’s Marco Rose is the runaway favourite in this poll and shows a real appetite among the fan base for a fresh start and new approach come the summer.
Henrik Larsson is in the betting because he’s a Celtic Legend not because of merit and that’s why he only earned 4% of the vote; this could be the lowest Henrik has ever polled on a poll voted on by Celtic fans!
The big surprise was Martinez and Neil Lennon being neck and neck with Martinez just coming out on top at 19% to Neil’s 18%. Martinez guided Belgium to a third-place finish at the World Cup and has been interviewed for the Celtic job before.
Neil Lennon has won titles as a manager and player. To be honest, we thought Neil would run a close second to Marco Rose in this poll. The thought of someone new and shiny in Rose is an intriguing prospect but the allure and comfort of tried and tested Neil Lennon doesn’t seem to shine through in this poll.
