Burnley manager Sean Dyche would be an “incredible” appointment for Celtic, according to Paul Robinson.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the 41-times England international, who played under Dyche at Turf Moor, is adamant that his former boss would be interested in taking over at Parkhead.

The Hoops are in the hunt for a new manager after Neil Lennon resigned from his post following a 1-0 loss to Ross County last month.

John Kennedy has been placed in temporary charge and is also the bookmakers favourite to take over on a permanent basis.

However, Robinson has giving his back to his friend Dyche.

“Sean Dyche would be a really smart appointment,” he told Football Insider.

“He is an incredible manager and a top-class man manager. If you look at his record and what he has done at Burnley over the years – it speaks for itself.

“I would love to see him given a bigger budget with better players. Whether that could happen at Celtic, I am not sure.

“The draw of European football, challenging for titles and managing one of the world’s biggest club I think would be a big draw for him.

“I think Dyche would be a brilliant appointment but I do not know if the fans would agree though because manager’s like Dyche get labelled with a certain type of play.

“I have no doubt that Sean Dyche could adapt his style of play though because he is a very clever manager and a very good tactical coach. I think Dyche would love to manage Celtic.”
