Former Croatia and West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is reportedly keen on taking over at Celtic Park, according to the BBC

The report claims that the 50-year-old is hoping to land a club job after being linked with the Scotland national position in recent weeks.

Bilic, who has also taken charge Besiktas, Lokomotiv Moscow and Hajduk Split during his managerial career, has previously been linked with the Hoops job. 

The club’s history and fanbase are reportedly two major factors in Bilic’s interest, with the Croat known for his bold managerial presence. 

Current Celtic interim boss Neil Lennon’s hopes of landing the job on a full-time basis for a second time took a hit last weekend, after the Hoops’ 2-0 defeat in the Glasgow Derby. 

Celtic have already secured the Scottish Premiership and have the opportunity to land a historic domestic ‘treble treble’ against Hearts later this month. 

And that fixture may be vital in terms of Lennon landing the job permanently.
