Since Celtic released their letter to the fans late yesterday afternoon, it seems that more questions have been raised by the statement than answers.
With Celtic fans hoping for an update to the Eddie Howe situation, speaking to Clyde 1 Superscoreboard, reporter Hugh Keevins has warned that Celtic fans may need to prepare for “upset” as he believes the there is serious doubts raised by the statement on Celtic’s ability to get the Howe deal over the line, “Celtics statement to their fans, the season ticket holders, will agitate more than it will appease. For me, it cast huge doubts over Eddie Howe becoming the manager.
“It’s eleven weeks now since Neil Lennon lost to Ross County the and subsequently left the club. It doesn’t look to me as if Celtic know for sure who is going to replace him.
“A part of the statement says ‘We fully understand that appreciate the need to complete the process as soon as we can‘. Well, eleven weeks and counting.
“For me, the potential is there for upset”
Which area of the team requires the most investment?
If Keevins is correct, then another question will also be raised, “If no Howe, then who?”. The absence of clarity has led to continued speculation over whether or not Eddie Howe will become the new manager and also great frustration amongst the Celtic fans.
With season ticket renewals due to be sent to fans anytime soon, if the Eddie Howe deal slips through the net, how will the Celtic board recover from that to persuade the fans to part with their hard earned cash for another season?
