The rumour mill of where Celtic are at with their new manager has been on overdrive now for over three months. With everyone and their dog not resigned to the fact that Eddie Howe will become the next Celtic manager, there have always been small murmurings that the popular manager had one eye on the English Premier League.
More often that not, Howe was continually linked with the Crystal Palace job and that speculation reached fever pitch after current manager, Roy Hodgson, announced his intentions to retire at the end of the season.
With the Celtic fans watching the breaking news through the spaces in their fingers, the next update should hopefully put their minds at rest.
Reporters Pete O’Rourke and Dean Jones where speaking on their Touchline Talk podcast and gave an update that is sure to encourage and please the Celtic supporters, “I think we can rule out Frank Lampard and Eddie Howe at this point.
Who would you rather see return to Paradise?
“I think both of them had an opportunity to take this job and I think that that chance has now gone so I think that Palace have moved on.”
The more we speak about Howe, the more frustrated the fans get but surely now, with no other impingement’s in sight, the road to appointing Howe is clear and the announcement will be made, as some expect, on the 1st June with the full entourage of Director of Football and Head of Recruitment and the backroom team.
We all wait with baited breath.
