Pundit Jamie O’Hara has recently tipped Burnley manager Sean Dyche to take over the managerial reins at Celtic.

O’Hara was recently talking about the Bhoys on the TalkSport Breakfast show and the panel discussed multiple issues involving the Parkhead-based side. O’Hara talked about the managerial opening at Celtic following Neil Lennon’s departure and he tipped Dyche for a move to the Hoops, describing the Burnley boss to be an ‘amazing manager’.

Neil Lennon resigned as the Celtic manager on Wednesday, with John Kennedy set to on an interim basis. The likes of , and Scotland manager Steve Clarke have been linked with the vacant hotspot in Glasgow.

Would Dyche be a good choice for Celtic?

O’Hara gave his opinion about Dyche’s suitability to Celtic, saying that the Englishman could possibly replicate Brendan Rodgers by sealing a Parkhead switch.

The pundit said: “I look at Sean Dyche, who I think he’s an amazing manager for Burnley, has run that club extremely well on a tight budget and has kept them in the Premier League all these years and are always a great side that is tough to beat.

“I just feel, has he taken that club as far as he can take it? They’re never going to win anything. They’ll always be a Premier League outfit with Sean Dyche in charge, but he’s never going to really stamp his authority as a top class manager.

“You look at Brendan Rodgers, even though he was manager of Liverpool he went to Celtic and it really put him on a platform as a top class manager because he went there and won things.

“I look at Sean Dyche and think if he goes to Celtic and wins three or four titles then I think he deserves that because he has taken Burnley as far as he can take them.”

Which club did join Celtic from?

TIF Thoughts on Sean Dyche…

Dyche has been at Burnley since 2012 and he is expected to remain in-charge since the summer of 2022. During his time at Turf Moor, the Englishman has racked up a points per match tally of a decent 1.40 (as per Transfermarkt).
Dyche’s teams are known to ‘love to defend’ and operate in a 4-4-2. Under him, Burnley have once finished as high as seventh in the Premier League and they’ve established themselves as a regular Premier League side.
This suggests that Dyche can help the Hoops establish an identity and if he does leave Burnley, he may not be a bad option for the Bhoys.
