Norwich City have denied they have made any move to make Celtic manger Neil Lennon their new boss.
Paul Lambert is expected to take up the vacant position at Aston Villa after offering his resignation to the Premier League club’s board.
Lennon, who played with Lambert at Celtic Park, was rumoured to be in consideration for the role along with Cardiff manager Malky Mackay.
However Canaries chief executive David McNally says they haven’t spoken to the SPL champions over a move for the Northern Irishman.
He told Sky Sports News: "It is interesting because I have seen reported today that we have contacted both of their clubs about their managers. We haven't and I would like to put that on record.
"Celtic Football Club and Norwich City get on marvellously well, we had a great day here last week celebrating Adam Drury's testimonial, the two sets of supporters get on brilliantly.
"I can confirm that no approach has been made for Neil Lennon.
"If we were interested in talking to them about Neil, he's a great manager, we would go straight to them quietly and privately, we wouldn't announce it through the media and Dermot Desmond (Celtic's majority shareholder) would be the first to know."
