Steve Clarke said that he will be taking a long holiday after the Euros and wants to lead Scotland to the World Cup in 2022.
He'd look silly if he backtracks on such an adamant statement.
He won't be coming to Celtic however I never thought he would anyway after what he said about protecting himself and his family from the sectarian hatred in Glasgow. HH.

1.) 03 Mar 2021 10:38:57
Thank **** for that.

2.) 03 Mar 2021 10:58:24
I've seen people do a lot worse backtracking than that tbh besty.

3.) 03 Mar 2021 11:07:14
Reports are suggest Celtic have made contact with Eddie Howe.
I never felt Eddie Howe was a possible target because he’s been available since last August.
If that’s the Celtic boards first choice, then why have they delayed the approach.
He should’ve been appointed last November at the latest.

4.) 03 Mar 2021 11:37:20
Unless he wanted to come in at the start of a season rather than mid way through a shambolic one BB? Tbh I don't think think the board would have sacked NL in November anyway. I'd imagine around Jan though they might have approached possible targets.

5.) 03 Mar 2021 11:56:06
Maybe he didn't want to take over a Cluster **** of a season.
He may also be the manager that was rumoured to have said that he would take the job but wouldn't work with Lawwell.
Personally I still think its Keane who will be announced in the next couple of weeks after Sevco win the title.

6.) 03 Mar 2021 12:04:50
Buzz they need to get a director of football in place befire or the exact same time as a head coach.

7.) 03 Mar 2021 12:34:50
Clarke also said later in the interview he’s looking forward to the Euros and then we’ll see what happens after that. He’s not going to come out in the press and say he’s interest in the Celtic job. I certainly didn’t take from his comments that he’s ruled himself out of the Celtic job.

8.) 03 Mar 2021 13:06:16
Steve Clarke would be a horrendous Celtic manager. His style of football is terrible. Aye we’d be able to defend, but no one would pay to watch it. Scotland have been pretty crap under him as well. Struggled in those groups and won penalty shootouts. Overlooked by the relief of finally reaching a finals.

9.) 03 Mar 2021 13:07:21
DoF will have to be in place before a new manager IF we are looking at bringing in a DoF that is.

10.) 03 Mar 2021 13:51:05
They backed lennon so how could they go for howe.

11.) 03 Mar 2021 14:00:24
How could they go for Howe? They phone his agent.

12.) 03 Mar 2021 14:33:02
I think Howe would be interested but I also think Howe will wait to see if there's a job (like the crystal palace one) comes up this season down south. Even a newly relegated team like sheffield utd etc.

13.) 03 Mar 2021 14:40:40
So you want celtic to phone about another manager when they have one.

14.) 03 Mar 2021 20:14:31
I just don't see Howe coming. I think it'll be someone like Keane and I think that's an awful appointment if I'm honest.

15.) 03 Mar 2021 20:20:07
Mally are you just trying to be argumentative or are you really that naive?
Football clubs will talk to other managers while they have a manager in place all the time.
Celtic even spoke to strachen to ask him to take us over till the end of the season at the end of November.

16.) 03 Mar 2021 23:00:17
If Clarke gets the Celtic job I’ll be looking for a new team. The guys football is the worst I’ve ever seen. He’s not doing a good job with Scotland despite the furore over the jammy qualification.

17.) 03 Mar 2021 23:02:19
It’s amazing how many Celtic fans have such a low opinion of Celtic that they think we can’t attract a decent manager.
They must have been asleep when we had MON and Rodgers.
Did Rafa go to China because it’s a footballing hotbed, or did he go for the money? If Celtic offered Rafa or Howe enough money they’ll come. If Celtic offered Slippy enough money he’d come.

18.) 03 Mar 2021 23:51:33
What manager do we have Mally? Are you suggesting Kennedy should get the job?

19.) 03 Mar 2021 23:54:44
Celtic never spoke to Strachan about taking over until the end of the season. That’s a fact.

20.) 04 Mar 2021 00:35:37
Says you my god pot kettle . so celtic are phoning other managers while we have one. if so why hasn't it been leaked . there must be a name . who kev.

21.) 04 Mar 2021 08:00:52
Degsy76. I think some managers won't come to Glasgow because of the abuse and the sectarianism, which in this day and age I don't blame them. Scotland is recognised all over the world for bigotry.

22.) 04 Mar 2021 08:03:21
Maybe the DOF could be MON and new coach Keane.

23.) 04 Mar 2021 20:34:30
That’s would be horrific Aussie ray.

24.) 04 Mar 2021 22:57:02
Guys, your guessing games are making you all sound ridiculous. I don't know what's gonnae happen, you don't know, no-one knows for sure so it may be better to stop being self appointed experts until the facts are known. HH.



24 Feb 2021 11:24:45
The club have said that Kennedy will take interim charge so in theory a new manager could be appointed at any time. Could be today, tomorrow or during the summer. HH.



26 Jan 2021 13:08:45
Ping pong is away to a Bundesliga side for 10m. Supposed to be undergoing a medical this morning. HH.

1.) 26 Jan 2021 13:16:23
I think Man City will get 30% of the transfer fee which is reported to be £10 million.
Frimpong has plenty of potential but I feel everyone is a winner with this deal.

2.) 26 Jan 2021 13:29:43
If reported fee is real that good business. He is not a winger and not a Rb. doesn't have great final ball, Bundesliga may be better suited him.

3.) 26 Jan 2021 13:34:20
He's sh@te anyway cannot defend and can't cross.

4.) 26 Jan 2021 13:51:04
Coached property he’ll be a belter.

5.) 26 Jan 2021 13:52:27
Good luck to him, he has had some brutal tackles on him since he came into the team, might do better in a league that has less hammer throwers.

6.) 26 Jan 2021 13:54:21
Does he need a lift to the airport?

7.) 26 Jan 2021 13:56:55
Agree with Buzz, if figures are true, everybody is a winner. Hopefully insert our own wee sell on clause too just in case he comes good. Good luck to him.

8.) 26 Jan 2021 13:58:39
Can't see anything on SLY - but then of it's no the EPL or Sevco they don't give a @*$#.

9.) 26 Jan 2021 14:00:03
App lennon has said more want to go as well. I know we all knew this but what a rubbish show we are at the minute. By the time the manager comes, he’s going to be left with a bare squad which will need replacing quickly and gelling together quickly. With the club not replacing Lennon I think at best it’s going to be Clarke, more and more I’m thinking Kennedy will get the gig . We obviously don’t have a plan or we do and it’s so poor they aren’t telling us. It won’t be Howe as he’s available now, and they haven’t moved for him. Rafa has stated he’s waiting for a job in the prem. Every day just seems to get worse for us, we could end up giving them the title next year and the bonus of the 40million from automatic entry to the champions league. I can’t believe the board are so naive and short sighted.

10.) 26 Jan 2021 14:10:09
“Coached properly he’ll be a belter” it’s best he moves on then.

11.) 26 Jan 2021 14:11:16
With Lennon still there no wonder players want out.

Mally - if he was pish then how come a better team than Celtic are willing to pay over 10 million for him?

He will only get better with proper coaching not with an absolute waster like Lennon who has ruined Celtic, so much so we are 23 points behind an average Rangers team.

12.) 26 Jan 2021 14:14:22
We know Christie, ajer, Eddie, el hamed all want out. I reckon McGregor wants out. Wouldn’t surprise me if Barkas and ajeti are thinking they made mistakes.
Can’t see bolingoli coming back into the fold. Browns out of contract. Moi and Duffys loans are up. There’s probably a few i've forgotten as well.
I know a fair few won’t be missed, but struggling to field a team.
That’s a complete rebuild needed. Even if we replace the important positions, it leaves us well short in depth.

13.) 26 Jan 2021 14:15:02
It's on sly seen it earlier.

14.) 26 Jan 2021 14:37:07
I think next years title is already in doubt. The board either want Lennon to stay or don’t want to pay him off.
We’re also losing about 11 players, so next season could be another disaster even if we brought in a top class manager. The squad is going to be so bare, he’ll be in trouble right from the off.
This stems from the board refusing to take action back in October when the season was salvageable. Someone said we don’t want to be like championship clubs sacking four managers a year. What we’re doing is equally as bad. They sack managers when there’s a rough patch. We’re not in a rough patch. We’ve crashed and landed on our roof. It’s been evident since ferencvaros that there’s problems in the dressing room, yet here we are, five months later in a position that could take two or three years to fix.

15.) 26 Jan 2021 20:36:08
That's why this season was extra important to win Degsy, fans wouldn't have cared too much losing next season if we had won the 10 as the massive rebuild was always required. Now as you say next season is in doubt too. I can foresee it already, Sevco will qualify for the UCL and we won't even get EL as we will be in the non champions route. Transfers will drag on for ages and we'll resort to playing players out of position or reserves like we do every year. They'll have money to burn and be able to lure in much better players.



22 Nov 2020 20:11:39
I heard that Dermot Desmond is in town. Should we read anything into that as for as the future of our manager is concerned? I know he does turn up from time to time so it may just be a coincidence. Just wondering. HH.

1.) 22 Nov 2020 20:51:09
I just can't think of any other ambitious club that would have kept a manager with such poor performance and unusual tactics in some games that we have with our current manager. It just baffles me.

2.) 22 Nov 2020 22:06:58
I would expect him to be. We have gone from being the top club in Scotland to now praying we will win a game. Being and looking professional to at time very amateur. Change has to come.

3.) 23 Nov 2020 10:13:10
Statistically things aren't too bad in the league compared to normal seasons, we are heading for around 88 points if the form over last 13 games maintains. That is normally plenty to win the title and I don't expect the board to sack the manager considering that.

This is not a normal season though and Rangers look like eclipsing that.

We need to see the level of grit, professionalism and ruthlessness we had in 2016/ 17.

I don't think I've seen a single name mentioned I am 100% confident can deliver - there's drawbacks with just about everyone. One thing is for sure though, looking at our next 5 league games now is the time to make the change.

Lennon needs help, maybe bulking up the coaching staff might be a more reliable way of achieving success.



02 Sep 2020 14:52:52
Read a rumour that Lenny is on his way to Sweden this morning. Any truth in it? HH.

1.) 02 Sep 2020 16:42:09

2.) 02 Sep 2020 17:17:12
Agreed lol.

3.) 02 Sep 2020 17:45:59

Thank God the season is finished for us. Let them celebrate their first ever title, it's always the best one apparently.
Our club have a lot to answer for this season at all levels from the boardroom to the boot room. Major statement signings are needed if they want us to challenge next season and a massive clear out of the unprofessional professionals who have been taking a wage every week. Shame on them all. HH.

1.) 07 Mar 2021 17:18:46
Sadly they will always be remembered as the team that lost the ten.



26 Feb 2021 14:34:18
I see McManus has been temporarily promoted from the development squad to assist Kennedy and this had me asking myself a question.
I know that many will say that when a manager goes then the entire backroom should go with him. If that were the case then Kennedy and Strachan must just be keeping the seats warm until the season's over.
Here's my question: Does McManus fall into the category of 'must gos'? Or is he sufficiently well thought of that he may stay?
Who else behind the scenes is a 'must go' and who is a 'must stay'? HH.

1.) 26 Feb 2021 15:12:09
When a manager is sacked its usually just him and his assistant and not the youth academy coaches.
The club also announced that Lennon resigned not sacked, in these circumstances its usually the incoming manager/ head coach who decides gets kept on from the previous regime.

2.) 26 Feb 2021 15:40:54
Strachan must go and Kennedy can stay as long as he steps back from first team and focus on youth development. If he is not prepared to do that, then he must go as well.

3.) 26 Feb 2021 16:40:31
Rodgers kept Kennedy but a posted a few weeks back that mick could get promoted odea is there also but the new guy is going to want his own backroom staff.

4.) 26 Feb 2021 17:03:19
Kennedy's contract doesn't expire until 2075 so the chances are he'll be around a while.

5.) 26 Feb 2021 17:38:17
We'll soon see if Kennedy should go!

6.) 26 Feb 2021 17:44:36
Whit? Another 54 years of John Kennedy; his nose will cover the Jock Stein Stand by then, Pedro!

7.) 26 Feb 2021 18:19:39
OAB he was asked his thoughts on picking the team abd he said he’d think about it after he’d picked his nose. Expect team news at the Fare.

8.) 26 Feb 2021 18:59:15
Just saw Alex Rae on the news just now. Why does he have to mention Celtic. He looks like what one of them looks like. He is a twisted H- -. He is worse than Fatty Boyd. 🍀🍀🍀🍀.

9.) 26 Feb 2021 19:17:31
Hahahaha, . Ralf could rock up as the new D. O. F. with Cocu as Manager and a whole coaching staff in tow and JK will be standing at Lennoxtown waiting to give them the guided tour.

John Kennedys feet never get wet when its rains, his nose acts as a canopy.

Mick Mccarthy? He's doing a cracking job with Cardiff. HH.

1.) 24 Feb 2021 22:18:06
Hope not😩.



24 Feb 2021 08:18:02
I'm wondering if John Kennedy taking charge from now until the end of the season is his trial run for the permanent job.
None of us know what he's capable of as he has always played second fiddle. He has turned down other head coach jobs to stay with us and Damien Duff thinks he is an outstanding coach in every way.
Thanks for the good times Lenny, it's a pity the bad times have taken so much of the shine off your crown. HH.

1.) 24 Feb 2021 08:40:00
I hope not or it will a downgrade on NL who was a downgrade on BR.

2.) 24 Feb 2021 08:51:27
I was always of the belief that if a manager goes, then the whole management team has to share the blame and follow put the door.
I appreciate we have to have someone to be a figurehead and go through the motions, but we need a completely new approach here with an inspirational and high profile appointment to shake things up.

3.) 24 Feb 2021 08:55:02
Hope he's seeing it through till the new guy comes in, we need a fresh face. good luck lenny your health comes first.

4.) 24 Feb 2021 09:15:48
OAB2, 'you're as good as your last job'. Kennedy and Strachan should be away come May.
A clean sweep is needed.

5.) 24 Feb 2021 09:24:10
If he is an outstanding coach, just who has he been coaching?, is he moonlighting somewhere?

6.) 24 Feb 2021 10:01:44
Well, the players said he was outstanding.
When they were training, he was outstanding chatting birds up.

7.) 24 Feb 2021 10:17:37
We will find out soon if Kennedy has anything about him

He wasn’t Lennon’s pick so maybe shouldn’t be expected to leave with him.

If this is his trial run then let’s see how it works out, the split is very close so it’s only the top teams he will be up against and what better way to make a judgment.

I personally don’t want him as boss but what happens if he wins the next 8 games comfortably and with the team playing good football.

The Celtic rollercoaster isn’t over just yet bhoys and ghirls.



23 Feb 2021 23:16:42
Lennon out tomorrow, Kennedy to take charge until the end of the season. HH.

I might be wrong but I think our ship has sailed with Hendry. My understanding is that a fee has been agreed with Oostende as part of the original loan deal and if they want to sign him for that fee then the deal is done. They could sign him on day one of the Summer transfer window and sell him to another club for more the next day. HH.

Pedro, have you not heard that DD is going too? Why would he be involved in appointing a new manager when he isn't going to be here to work with him?
On another note, Elvis is dead too. And so is George Michael. Hope that doesn't come as too much of a shock to you. HH.

I wouldn't have thought so Ed. He would be due it if he won 10iar but if he was sacked for whatever reason before that happened means he isn't due it if he hasn't won it. 'Mathematically possible' is fairly meaningless if it hasn't been accomplished, unless there is something in his contract that says otherwise however it would be foolish for the club to add or agree to anything along those lines. Lawwell may be many things but he isn't a financial mug. HH.

Don't underestimate the talent of Michael O'Neill. He's from my home town. I know many who know him although I never met him. He has a very strong belief in his own ability. He has the same ruthlessness nature that Rodgers had and maybe with a better boss than Lawwell he would could make his own decisions. He's more talented than many give him credit for. He took a NI team of average players and made them believe they were feckin superheroes. HH.

I think Keano's management style is flippin fabulous. He is old skool with his shouting and confronting underperforming players and their attitudes and demanding that they try harder.
But that's where the problem would lie if he came in. Players today have different attitudes to when Keano was a player himself. He always gave everything he had to win and he still can't accept that any player would or should think differently to his own mindset as a player. They think more about money, perks and an easy life than they do about pulling their socks up and playing with a bit of gusto and enthusiasm.
And for me that's where he would lose the plot very quickly. It's a shame that's how it is but that IS how it is and for that reason alone we need a manager with a more modern approach. HH.
