You have to love it when a Celtic fans calls in a radio phone in and sticks it to the panel/host/pundits. None more so than the purveyor of doom, Hugh Keevins.
Keevins took to Clyde 1 Superscoreboard to warn Celtic fans that they may be left disappointed as the latest statement regarding the search for a manager says the Howe deal is nowhere near the finished article.
Last night a caller called the station and took Keevins to task on his constant negativity regarding his club and said he still believes Celtic will get their man, “First of all what I want to say to Hugh Keevins, ‘He’s not got a good word to say about Celtic’. He was talking last saying we are a shell of a team. He’s talking this week we’re not going to get Eddie Howe.
Which area of the team requires the most investment?
“Now I hope it’s Eddie Howe and it comes back to bite him in the ‘you know where’. These things take time. It will obviously take a bit longer than we thought.
“As long as the club gets the right man in for the job I’ll be happy. But listen I hope it comes back to bite you. I hope Eddie Howe gets the job and he does a good job for our club. And I think it will be Eddie Howe.”
Never a truer work spoken and it is not the first time Keevins has been berated for his constant negative stance regarding the Hoops. Celtic are still confident of getting their man and by all accounts it seems certain contractual issues are holding up the deal. It seems Howe is almost certainly a done deal but until the man is paraded in a Celtic scarf, there will always be scepticism on whether he will arrive at Celtic Park.
