We are almost at an end with what seems like the world’s longest managerial soap opera and journalist Mark Guidi, has made a bold prediction on when he believes Celtic will make an announcement on Eddie Howe.
Speaking on The Go Radio Football Show, Guidi did say that although he does expect Howe to be named the next Celtic gaffer, he warned that if Howe still hasn’t made up his mind then it is time Desmond called time on the deal and move on, “It has to be a yes or no. Probably next week. I mean, surely, at some stage Dermot Desmond has got to cut this off, and either parade Eddie Howe or move on to the second choice.
“It looks as though Eddie Howe is going to be the next manager. As for the makeup of his backroom team. I don’t know, I think John Kennedy can have a role at Celtic if he wants it. He had discussions with the club, towards the end of the Brendan Rodgers tenure about the director of football.
Is Eddie Howe the man for the Celtic job?
LET'S MOVE ON
“So it is some that the club value him in, but again, Fergal Harkin is a name that it’s not going away and he’s been on the radar from day one. I think we all just want to know what the make ups going to be.
“The Celtics supporters want to know before they commit to season tickets.”
As I’ve said before, I expect Howe to be announced on Monday after the Glasgow Derby fixture. This will give Howe opportunity to cast his eye over the squad during the last two fixtures of the season and possibly, maybe (or just hopefully), he can persuade one or two players to extend their contracts at the club.
