Kollner linked with the Celtic vacancy, and declined to comment.

German manager Michael Kollner has reportedly held talks with Celtic, but when asked by newspaper Bild to comment on rumours linking him with the Scottish champions, he has chosen not to comment.

Wales Online claim the former 1. FC Nürnberg boss has undergone talks with both Celtic and Swansea City. The latter are looking to replace Graham Potter, who has joined Premier League side Brighton.

Kollner was sacked by his former side in February. The change in manager failed to prevent 1. FC Nürnberg from suffering relegation from the Bundesliga, finishing rock bottom of Germany’s top tier.

Its highly doubtful that Kollner has been chosen by the Celtic board to replace Brendan Rodgers as the new permanent Celtic manager, as his tenure with FC Nürnberg ended badly for Kollner as the German was sacked and it led the club to finish bottom of the league.

Clearly this might be a bit far fetched as maybe Kollner has been interviewed and maybe he thinks he has a chance but Celtic would never again hire such a manager again with hardly any positive experience like they did with Delia, even Delia had a good reputation with his previous club in Norway and made them champions.
