Collins doubts his Hoops credentials
John Collins has played down his chances of being appointed Celtic manager, and also cast doubt on Neil Lennon's hopes of landing the job. The former Parkhead midfielder and Hibernian manager Collins, 42, has been out of work since leaving Charleroi last summer.
"There's a big job in Glasgow, but I would imagine they would be going for somebody a bit more experienced than myself," Collins said. "But it is a big job for somebody, a big challenge."
Lennon was named interim manager last month after Tony Mowbray's sacking and although he has won all four of his Premier League games, Celtic suffered a shock Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Ross County. "That was a poor defeat, but he has had four league victories on the bounce, so you never know," Collins added. "If he goes from now until the end of the season winning every game, he might have a chance."
