Toffees could tempt Celtic boss away.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that being linked with the soon to be vacant Everton job but has admitted that he has not received an approach yet, according to The Express.
The 41-year-old has been installed as the bookies favourite to take over from David Moyes ahead of the likes of Mark Hughes, Roberto Martinez and Current Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay.
And he has admitted that whilst it’s flattering to be linked with such a position, he is refusing to get carried away with the speculation and will only react once official contact has been made.
“Of course, it is nice recognition,” he said.
“Roberto Martinez was favourite yesterday and I’m favourite today, it could be someone else tomorrow.”
“But all of it is speculation. I have a job here, I have a great job, a great set of players, a great support, so I am pretty happy here.”
Reports this morning suggested that Everton would be talking to Mackay but the Northern Irishman’s name is still the name on everybody’s lips as the ideal replacement, and though he has refused to declare an interest, he also refused to refute the links.
“There has been no approach or talk about it,” he said.
“I can’t comment on it or dwell on it because nothing is happening, and all it is is speculation.”If I am here next season, that’s what you look to do, improve every season and I think we have done.”
