Burnley boss Sean Dyche urged to apply for Celtic job

Burnley boss Sean Dyche can enhance his reputation by taking over at Celtic, according to former Spurs star Jamie O'Hara.

The Englishman is being touted as a potential candidate to replace Neil Lennon, who left Parkhead this week.

And similar to Brendan Rodgers, O'Hara thinks Dyche could cement his reputation as a top manager by winning titles in Scotland.

"I look at Sean Dyche, who I think is an amazing manager for what he has done for Burnley," said O'Hara, speaking on Talk Sport.

"He has kept that club on a tight budget and run that football club extremely well.

"He has kept them in the Premier League all these a years, they are always a great side and tough to beat.

"Has he taken that club as far as he can take it? They are never going to win anything.

"They will always be a Premier League outfit with Sean Dyche in charge but is he ever really going to stamp his authority as a top class manager?

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

"I look at Sean Dyche and if he goes there to Celtic and all of a sudden wins three or four titles, then I think he deserves that because I think he has taken Burnley as far as he can take them."
