Neil Lennon emerges as bookies favourite for Ross County job

Celtic hero Neil Lennon is the current bookies favourite for the Ross County job after the sacking of Malky Mackay.

This is according to Sportslens who claim that "Lennon is the prime candidate and has a 3/1 chance of taking the helm, closely followed by former Fleetwood Town manager Scott Brown at 4/1."

Lennon was last in the dugout while in charge of Cypriot side Omonia Nicosia before being sacked after a poor run of results.

Naomi Rose, a spokesperson from Sportslens, said: "Neil Lennon and Scott Brown are the frontrunners for the Ross County job but don't discount Kevin Thomson.

"His innovative approach at Kelty Hearts could be exactly what Ross County needs to revitalise their season.

"It's an exciting time for the club as they look to rebuild and move up the Premiership table."

Meanwhile, several Premier League clubs are reportedly "interested" in Celtic star Matt O'Riley, including Crystal Palace.

This is according to the Scottish Sun who claim teams in England and beyond are monitoring the midfielder and that bids north of £10million would "give the Scottish champions something to think about.

O’Riley has scored six times and provided five assists in 12 appearances in the Scottish Premiership, adding two more assists in the Champions League.

He recently signed a new deal with the Parkhead side which keeps him under contract until 2027.
