Yet another blow for Celtic in their attempts to appoint Eddie Howe

Of course there are situations where no news is good news, but the ongoing situation with Celtic and Eddie Howe is starting to become a concern.

Hopefully there is much more to this, but it’s clear that talks have taken place so there has to be a fear that Celtic have decided he is the man that they want, but he’s still desperate to stay down south so he’s currently dragging this out to see if any other offers come his way.

That is the nightmare scenario for Celtic as the last thing we need to see is a panic appointment who will need to be replaced in a couple of years, while the latest reports about Howe suggest there is yet more interest from Premier League clubs.

This time it’s Brighton who are reportedly considering Howe as an option according to Football Insider, but it’s also worth remembering that the current boss Graham Potter has a huge contract with the Seagulls that keeps him there until 2025.

The problem for Potter is that a lot of money has been spent on that squad and relegation is still a genuine possibility, so it’s said that they are considering parting ways even if he manages to keep them up.

It’s a worrying one from a Celtic point of view because even if this story is wide of the mark then there’s still the problem that an agreement hasn’t been reached and someone feels the need to keep touting him with jobs down south, so hopefully something is sorted soon – one way or the other.

  1. I’m resigned to the fact that Kennedy is getting the job.
    If Howe has taken this long to consider it, he doesn’t want it.
    If we haven’t announced anyone on Sunday morning, the. It’s Kennedy’s job unless we get humiliated.

  2. The Eddie Howe thing is turning into a fiasco. If he has been offered the job I would be happy if he took it. However, it is time for him to accept it or leave it. If he is holding out for a better job down south then Celtic should withdraw the offer and move on. I don’t want any manager who would choose Celtic as a last resort.
