Neil Lennon is on Fulham’s radar to be their next boss.

SunSport are reporting that the already-relegated Cottagers have placed the stand-in Celtic manager on a list of candidates to succeed Scott Parker.

Kilmarnock gaffer Steve Clarke is considered the front-runner for the hotseat as Fulham prepare for life back in the Championship.

Parker is currently in charge only on a caretaker basis, but would be keen to take the reins permanently at the club where he finished a stellar playing career.

But Lennon’s record at Hibs and in two spells at Celtic have also caught the eye of Fulham chiefs, including billionaire owner Shahid Khan.

Lenny, 47, made a shock Celtic return in February with a brief to maintain the team’s push towards an historic treble Treble.

The Northern Irishman — who won three straight titles and two Scottish Cups in his first spell as Hoops gaffer, plus a place in the Champions League last 16 — has guided the side to an eight-game unbeaten run and a place in the Scottish Cup Final.

But it remains unclear if Celtic’s major shareholder Dermot Desmond and chief executive Peter Lawwell will give him the post for the long term.

Lennon would only seriously consider another club position if he didn’t land the Parkhead gig on a permanent basis.

But if that’s not to be, he would be open to a second chance to prove himself down south after a difficult two years at financially-crippled Bolton ended in 2016 with a ‘mutual consent’ exit. "
