Celtic manager Neil Lennon has once again been linked with the Norwich city managerial role. The Premier league outfit recently sacked Chris Hughton from the role after a run of poor results, which has left the club just a few points above the relegation zone with only five matches left.

Further, the club have matches against top clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United in this remaining matches. Hence, the pressure is high on the club to survive in the Premier league. Lennon has been consistently linked with the managerial job ever since Paul Lambert left.

He has managed to resist the lure and stay with Celtic. After winning the Scottish league title once again, Lennon has been speaking about the lack of a challenge at Celtic Park. The Champions League is the only realistic challenge for the club. Norwich are already looking at potential replacements and they are believed to have drawn a list that is rumoured to include Burnley’s Sean Dyche and former Cardiff city manager Malkey Mackay. Even though Lennon’s on the list, he is not thought to be heading the other managers primarily due to his lack of Premier league experience.

However, Lennon has spoken in glowing praise of Norwich, which has only added to the rumours.

"It's always flattering to be linked with jobs. I think the Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world, but I don't want to be talking about that. I'm in a stable position at Celtic. The Scottish environment is obviously not as good as the English league. But I'm at a great club and it's a privilege to be their manager,” said Lennon. Norwich chief executive David McNally has claimed that the club has not taken a gamble in appointing youth team coach Neil Adams as the interim.
