There are plenty of questions around the Celtic managerial situation right now. When the club replaced Ange Postecoglou with Brendan Rodgers, the expectation was that they had found their next head coach for the upcoming few years at least. Unfortunately, the Northern Irishman's second run at Parkhead has not been nearly as successful as the first one until now.

If Celtic end up finishing the season without winning the league, then it is very possible that Rodgers could be shown the exit door. So, the Hoops might have to look for a new manager next summer, much sooner than anybody could have imagined.

Of course, Rodgers could turn things around over the next couple of months and let's hope he does. After being sacked by Leicester City last season, he will surely want to make his second run at Parkhead a successful one.

One manager who is not expected to ever get a second stint as Celtic boss is Ronny Deila. It had looked like the Norwegian's career on the rise but things have headed south once again. He has been sacked by Club Brugge.

Club Brugge's official announcement of Deila's exit is very interesting as well. The manager was not even thanked for his contributions to the club, having joined them in July of last year. The statement read:

"Ronny Deila is no longer head coach of Club Brugge.

Deila (48) has been head coach of Blauw-Zwart since the beginning of this season. After disappointing results and level of play, it was decided to discontinue the collaboration with head coach Ronny Deila and assistants Efrain Juarez and Kristof Aelbrecht. In recent weeks, Club has not seen enough of Club Brugge's DNA in the game delivered and the sporting management is convinced that better results should be possible with the current core."

That is a pretty blunt way of putting it to say the very least. As things stand, Club Brugge sit 4th in the Belgian top flight, 19 points behind the league leaders. Let's see where things go for Deila from here.

Deila's stint at Club Brugge did not even last a year. This will come as a blow for the former manager as well after a couple of good spells at New York City FC and Standard Liege.
