Carlos Carvalhal has contacted Celtic about their managerial vacancy.

The 53-year-old was sacked by Swansea a year ago following relegation from the EPL having previously enjoyed two seasons in charge of Sheffield Wednesday when they reached the EPL play-offs.

After a bright start at Swansea after taking over from Paul Clement they slipped into the relegation zone with a record of eight wins, eight draws and nine defeats.

According to The Sun:

But SunSport understands Carvalhal’s representatives have contacted the Parkhead powerbrokers to press his claims.

The 53-year-old has European experience after spells with Sporting Braga and Sporting Lisbon in his homeland as well as Besiktas in Turkey.

At this stage, more than two months after Brendan Rodgers quit for Leicester, supporters are expecting the Celtic board to have firm plans on a successor.

Online supporters are increasingly turning against Neil Lennon with little sign of gratitude for taking over a squad high on injuries and low on players that have made a worthwhile contribution this season.

Lennon has two matches left to get through this season with his application very much dependent on those results while new candidates such as Carvalhal and Chris Hughton appear on a daily basis.
