It’s definitely an Eddie Howe day today on Vital Celtic. With the speculation at fever pitch on whether or Eddie Howe will be announced as the new Celtic manager, ex Celtic striker, John Hartson, seemed more upbeat that Howe will eventually sign on the dotted line.
Speaking on The Go Radio Football Show, Hartson opened up on his thoughts about whether he thinks Howe will be the new man, “If you believe all the press and all the hype and everything else, I’d be surprised now if it doesn’t happen then, put it that way.
“He’s not currently working (Howe) so I don’t see any reason why he wouldn’t be in some sort of conversations with Dom McKay, the new Chief Executive, and Peter Lawwell. And if it’s down to a matter of urgency, of importance, even some of the players.”
Will Celtic regret letting Scott Brown go?
Co pundit, Steven Craigan, was just as adamant that the announcement is imminent and said that the early arrival of Dom McKay is very telling, “You just get the sense that there’s a big decision imminent and he (Dom McKay) wants to be in and around the club when that decision is made.
“Because you think he’s gonna have to build a relationship with a new manager, with the Technical Director or Sporting Director whatever route they go, with the players when there’s new signings, there’s outgoings, his new philosophy.
“So there’s so many things happening John you’re spot on. I think he needs to be in at the heart of it, because when Peter Lawwell leaves in the summer, he’s gonna have to build these relationships.”
That certainly seems more encouraging for the Celtic fans as they continue to wait for the arrival of their new manager but it seems that all hope for Howe, is not lost yet!
