Brendan Rodgers is the odds-on favourite to be the next Celtic boss, amid suggestions that he has opened talks with the club.

They are searching for a successor to Ronny Deila, and it is claimed that ex-Parkhead player Malky Mackay has also been interviewed.

Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane is another name that has been in the mix.

But Sky Sports sources have pushed former Liverpool managers Rodgers to the front of the queue, stating that he held talks with the club's hierarchy last week.

They also add that David Moyes and Paul Lambert have not been interviewed for the vacancy.
