Chelsea legend Frank Lampard was sacked as Chelsea manager on Monday after 18 months in charge at Stamford Bridge, with Thomas Tuchel set to be announced as his replacement imminently.
Lampard’s uncle Harry Redknapp has backed the Chelsea legend to become Celtic’s next boss following his Chelsea dismissal.
Neil Lennon is currently in charge of Celtic, but is not expected to last much longer with the Scottish Premiership champions 23 points behind Rangers in this season’s title race.
According to Redknapp, it will be interesting to see Lampard compete with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, who is Rangers boss.
“That’s certainly something that would interest any manager. It’s a great football club to come and manage, that’s for sure,” Redknapp told the Daily Record.
“Neil Lennon is still there so I wouldn’t want to talk too much about someone else taking his job but obviously it would be interesting to see Frank in direct opposition to Steven Gerrard.
“I don’t know whether, if the Celtic job came up, it would be something that would interest Frank. Obviously Neil Lennon is still in charge and I wouldn’t want to see him lose his job.
“Would Frank want to jump straight back in if it did become available? I wouldn’t know. But you could certainly see the appeal.”
Lampard leaves Chelsea ninth in the Premier League after just two wins in our last eight league matches.
