Mauricio Pochettino a feasible option for Celtic according to Charlie Adam

Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino could replace Neil Lennon at Celtic.

That is the view of former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam, who has backed the Champions League finalist to consider a move to Scotland after leaving the Premier League.

Despite lead shareholder Dermot Desmond continuing to back Lennon as the club slip further behind Rangers in their own quest to win tenth consecutive league title, Adam is considering a change.

The former Scotland international thinks the Argentine could fancy the job to rebuild his career after being sacked, as Brendan Rodgers did between 2016 and 2019.

In a chat with PLZ Soccer, he said: “Dermot Desmond can pull anything out the rabbit [hat].

"He's got enough money. Could Pochettino be the one? Could he throw Pochettino in the mix?

"Because he's not no job. Come in, rebuild your career again and see what happens.

"What's the difference with that and Brendan Rodgers coming to Celtic?"

Celtic are currently 11 points behind Rangers in the Premiership with two games in hand, and are out of the Europa League with two group stages matches remaining.

In another huge blow, the Hoops were knocked out of the Betfred Cup by Ross County which ended a 35-match winning run in domestic cup competitions.

Lennon said: "We're trying to find solutions to what we can do better, not just with the first team but all round the club.

"It was a very productive conversation and I have their [Desmond and Peter Lawwell] full support.

"We're not happy with the way things have gone over recent weeks and I am the head of the football department and the face of the club.

"They are not happy about things, no question. They are honest about things as well but they believe in me and I believe in them and I believe in the process."
