Swansea City boss Graham Potter is reportedly a shock contender for the full-time Glasgow Celtic managerial position, according to a report published by the Scottish Sun. 

The Hoops are without a permanent boss after Brendan Rodgers left the Parkhead job in February to take charge of Premier League side Leicester City.

Neil Lennon is currently managing Celtic on an interim basis until the end of the season. If Lennon wants to secure the job on a permanent basis, he will likely have to ensure that the club achieve the treble this season.

Celtic have been linked with big names during recent weeks including Rafa Benitez, Andre Villas-Boas and Roberto Martinez.

Potter’s link to the Hoops comes as a surprise. He does not have prior experience in Scotland. He has also not really done anything extraordinary with Swansea this season.

As things stand, the Swans lie in 13th position on the English second-tier standings with 56 points after 41 games.

However, it can be argued that Swansea’s displays this season must be understood in context, which Celtic will take into account.

The Welsh giants were relegated from the Premier League last season and managing a club who were relegated the previous season is never easy – due to the structural changes which take place. This is a major reason as to why many clubs end up suffering back-to-back demotions.

If Potter were to be employed as Celtic manager, he would likely be able to do an apt job, after all, most professional managers would probably win the Scottish Premiership if they were managing the Hoops.
