Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan has suggested to The Scottish Sun that Carlos Carvalhal would be a good managerial appointment for Celtic.

According to The Scottish Sun, former Wednesday and Swansea City manager Carvalhal is interested in the Celtic managerial job.

Neil Lennon is in charge of the Hoops at the moment, having been appointed in the role in February 2019 following the departure of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City in the Premier League.

Lennon is scheduled to stay at Celtic Park until the end of the season, and it is not yet clear if he will be kept on in the role beyond the summer.

Bannan worked with Carvalhal at Wednesday in the Championship in England and was a key player in the Owls reaching the playoffs twice in a row.

The 29-year-old Scotland international midfielder – who is a Celtic fan, as he himself told Herald Scotland back in March 2009 – believes that the Portuguese would be a good managerial appointment for the Hoops.

Bannan told The Scottish Sun: “Rangers look as though they’ll be putting up a better challenge next season and because of that some Celtic supporters are starting to panic.

“The punters want someone in quickly to take them forward. But going, from my experiences, I think Carlos would be a good contender for it. But then I’m sure there are going to be others in the frame.”
