Robinson tips Lampard to hold talks with Rangers man after key Celtic update
Frank Lampard will be “in the mix” to replace Celtic manager Neil Lennon at the end of the season, according to Paul Robinson.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs goalkeeper said it would be an “incredible opportunity” for his former England teammate at a “huge football club”.
This site revealed on 6 February that Lampard has no interest in an immediate return to management amid speculation he could replace Neil Lennon at Parkhead.
The 42-year-old Premier League legend was sacked by Chelsea last month after 18 months in charge and he will reassess his options in the summer.
Lampard was immediately linked with the Celtic manager’s job after his dismissal from Stamford Bridge, with Neil Lennon’s side having struggled this season.
When asked if he expected Lampard to be interested in managing the Hoops next season, Robinson told Football Insider: “It would be an incredible opportunity to manage Celtic.

“They are such a huge football club with a worldwide following and of course there is the possibility of Champions League football.
“You only have to look at how well Steven Gerrard has done up there since he took over, and it was a very difficult job when he took over. Frank will look at that and he will speak to Stevie if that opportunity does arise.
“I do not like talking about new managers coming in when there is already one in a job but it is not looking likely that Lennon will be there beyond this season.
“Frank is somebody I expect to be in the mix for that job. I think it would be an ideal fit for him.”
