Paolo Di Canio wants Celtic job in the future

Di Canio to move North?

Former Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio wants to become Celtic's next manager if Neil Lennon decides to quit the Scottish Premier League club.

Di Canio struggled in the English top flight but is a cult hero at Celtic, a team for whom he played and enjoyed a successful spell.

Di Canio's agent Phil Spencer confirmed that a Celtic move would be interesting for his client.

"Paolo would be keen to speak to Celtic," Spencer said.

"He played for the club and he certainly has a good relationship with the fans.

"There has been no contact between Paolo and the club. But if there was, it's something he would consider."
