Could Dion and Lennon be back?

Could Dion and Lennon be back?

Mischievous thought but if Leicester City's eventual new management team fails to save us from relegation, what chance Dion Dublin and Neil Lennon returning in the summer?

Dublin has signed for Celtic until the end of the seaason, with a one year option after that.

The 36-year-old is probably nearing the end of his playing days. At Celtic he'll have the perfect chance to cog his thoughts in with Lennon and to perhaps get some coaching work done.

Until Levein's departure, Leicester were committed to the development of Academy players as the best way to survive financially and of hopefully maintaining the playing standards necessary to remain a reasonably credible club.

Whether that policy will be sidelined now, time will tell.

But from everything I've seen and everything Rob Kelly has said, Dublin was a popular and encouraging figure to those young players and exactly the sort who could have played a vital role in aiding their development.

Now he's gone, and for such a short contract, I wonder could he return in a management role at Leicester sooner rather than later in tandem with midfield legend Lennon?.

Leicester would be prudent to sign their new management team on the basis of survival plus an option after that and certainly the club have indicated that survival is their first priority.

Lennon has let it be known he might fancy the manager's job come the close season. Dublin knows the players and will have the chance to work with Lennon at Celtic.

Perhaps I'm looking too far ahead in a fast-changing world. But stranger things have happened.

This hasn't been confirmed as a fact but if Dublin really did tell Levein that he was 'A Leicester lad, etc' after smashing a goal while exiled with the youth team, it just might indicate that he, like Lennon, shares the same feelings for City.

Which would also explain why he might have been so cheesed off to be apparently overlooked when the caretaker changes were made.
