Reports out today Celtic are drawing up a managerial shortlist for January in case results don’t improve under Neil Lennon.
The board said in a statement, they would review the manager’s position in January after all December fixtures had been fulfilled and if he can’t get results, it will be time for a change.
SunSport have reported today, Celtic have been drawing up a list of people and it looks uninspired and unimaginative to say the very least/
The three men in the report mentioned were Martin O’Neill, who has now declared he’s ready to get back into management after the Nottingham Forest debacle, Scotland boss Steve Clarke, and former bhoy and Ipswich manager, Paul Lambert.
It’s hardly thinking outside the box!
The paper writes:
“O’Neill is a legend there after his first spell, though he would need a new coaching team this time.
“The Glasgow giants have also considered Steve Clarke — but Scotland making the Euros means it will be difficult for him to move before then.
“Hoops’ feelers have gone out about Paul Lambert, however, he is in contract at Ipswich.”
If there is to be a change in the manager this season, Celtic should be looking for the very best candidates and not just looking out their front window or indulging in an old pals act.
It speaks to a big problem the board have, Peter Lawwell wants a certain type of manager at the club. The fans want to see ambition, we don’t want to see a manager coming in who’s just pleased to be here.
