This site has warned consistently that the Eddie Howe announcement is not as straight forward as what it is being made out to be. I have warned of English Premier League manager developments that could affect Howe being announced as the next manager.
What I have not done, and will not do, is feed fake news to appease the fans and claim everything is rosy in the Celtic garden when it comes to news about the new Celtic manager.
Like most bloggers, to get a story out that offers different perspectives on all things Celtic, we need to be creative on how we gain our information. We do not have access to Celtic players, managers or board members so we have to take information from podcasts, newspapers or media snippets to get our views across.
Some Celtic fans like it. Some don’t. Some abuse on social media because it is news they don’t like but can’t find the vocabulary in their heads to articulate or formulate a debate or different opinion. That’s their prerogative, but it is small minded and achieves nothing. But, as with all bloggers, we either ignore or block those kinds of people and keep on doing what we do. Get the information out there for you, the fans.
Should Marian Shved get another chance at Celtic?
So, with that in mind, this next pundit suggested that it is a worry for Celtic fans that Eddie Howe has not yet been officially announced as the Celtic manager after the news broke on Friday that the board had officially approached him to offer the job.
Speaking on The Go Radio Football Show, Barry Ferguson expressed this to host, Paul Cooney, “Is this not worrying, obviously, the news broke on Friday? Is this not worrying that it’s still not out that the manager’s here?
“I’m sure the Celtic fans over the weekend would be thinking, ‘Right I know it’s Easter Monday but we’re looking at Monday and the new manager is going to be announced’.
“That would be a worry for me that is he still not been confirmed.”
It is a fair point. To officially announce your target and almost a full week later, he has still not been announced should worry the Celtic fans, especially as warnings have been heeded that Howe is a target for an EPL side. Will the announcement be made by Dominic McKay as he brings forward his start date with Celtic later this month? Lets hope so.
