With time moving on and Celtic’s new CEO, Dom McKay almost five full days into the job, the silence from all quarters at Celtic Park remain the same over the next Celtic manager. It has been almost eight weeks to the day since former boss Neil Lennon left the post and despite all the speculation surrounding a possible appointment, nothing concrete as yet had been released from the Paradise boardroom.

With Eddie Howe (as everyone and their granny already knows) remains top of the Hoops boards list, with complete silence from the Howe camp combined with that of the Celtic board, Hoops fans are becoming more and more frustrated as the days swiftly pass by.

Today, a report from from English media outlet Eastern Daily Express, has speculated that ex Celtic midfielder, Peter Grant, left his post at Alloa Athletic to join Howe’s backroom staff when he finally takes the reigns at Paradise.

Do you think Eddie Howe will become the Celtic manager?

YES

YES

NO

NO

Grant’s departure from the The Wasps was sealed after relegation from the Scottish Championship and the club released a statement saying, “The commitment and professionalism that Peter has brought to Alloa has been a credit to him, we could not have asked for more.  Obviously results this season have been disappointing, however it is with sadness we see Peter leave the club.  I do however respect his decision and wish him the very best in all his future endeavours”.

Grant coached Howe over 20 years ago when he was Assistant Manager at Bournemouth and knows the young up and coming coach well but is this a simple case of the media adding two plus two to come up with five? Time will tell.
