REVEALED: Celtic target Lampard content to wait for next job until Chelsea wages cease

Frank Lampard would be interested in taking over at Celtic.

Neil Lennon resigned from the Scottish giants on Wednesday, with his side sitting 18 points behind league leaders Rangers.

A move to Celtic before the end of the current season would see Lampard forfeit £1.5m worth of wages following his Chelsea sacking.

Lampard's £75k-a-week wages will remain on Chelsea's books until July, unless he gets a job elsewhere.

Football Insidersays this might force the Bhoys to wait until the summer to recruit Lampard as their new manager.

The Englishman would prefer to enjoy the rest of his break before starting with a clean slate for next season.
