Celtic told to appoint 'perfect' Lampard and he would attract big players - Robinson

Celtic should appoint Frank Lampard as their next manager and he would attract top stars, according to Paul Robinson.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs goalkeeper, who played alongside Lampard for England, claimed his ex-teammate would be the “perfect” choice to succeed Neil Lennon.

Celtic’s interim boss John Kennedy remains the bookmakers favourite to become the next permanent manager, despite inspiring little change so far.

Lampard has been out of work since 25 January after he was sacked by Chelsea and Football Insider understands he would consider taking over at Parkhead in the summer.

Robinson urged the Hoops to appoint the ex-Derby boss because of his draw in the transfer market.

“They need a big-name manager to come in,” he told Football Insider.

“You need someone who is highly-respected in the game, whether it be someone experienced or a big name ex-player who is cutting his teeth in the game.

“For me, Frank Lampard would be the perfect choice. He could give the club a boost and he could attract players to the club.

“They need a manager like that because they need to be savvy in the transfer market and change the squad that they got.”

Football Insider revealed that the club are set to sound out their highly-successful former manager Martin O’Neill for his views on their next appointment.

He won three league titles, three Scottish Cups and a League Cup in his five-year spell in the dugout at Celtic Park.
