    I’m not worried as Mckay hasn’t started yet so there’s no chance we’re appointing a manager until he’s in the door.

    We all thought Mckay would of started last week once the stock exchange opened on Tuesday and then Howe shortly after.

    Supposedly Desmond has refused him bringing in all his own staff and he's not going to come. Just a rumour nothing concrete at the moment obviously.

    Where's that rumour coming from? The last one I saw was PL was trying to force Kennedy on him

    If that were to be true... then it’s a double worry...

    1) that the (supposed) main target isn’t coming.

    and the greater issue in my opinion..

    2) that DD is being stubborn snd probably means Jk will be remaining in a high profile role.

    I seriously hope that Howe is not the only cv on the desk at the moment... we know how things went when Lennon was the sole applicant considered and is no different when the calibre of ‘applicant’ is higher.

    I still think Howe is playing us and has zero intention of moving to Celtic. He wouldnt say no right now as it keeps him in the news snd his profile up.... but he is simply waiting for an (y) epl club to come calling when the carousel starts up in a few weeks.... and frankly...

    ....why should we accept someone who might only join us as a last resort when any other ‘more attractive ‘ possibilities have gone?

    The club needs to set a deadline and move on. There are other candidates out there and having to appoint late in the summer is not only poor timing in terms of squad incomings snd outgoings... and in such a transitional close season with CL qualifiers to navigate ...

    ....but we could well end up with a hasty rushed appointment with (yet again) the wrong man being appointed to the job.

    I hope this doesn't pan out the way it’s looking.

    Howe was my number one choice for the job but If he rejects us for the likes of Palace or a below par English club then imo its a bullet dodged as he wouldn't have the cojones needed to run a club like celtic

    He was my choice for the job but we will have a big enough job rebuilding the squad come the summer, we can’t afford to keep waiting for him. New manager, whoever that is going to be needs in ASAP

    It's just something I was told mate, hopefully nothing in it. Yeh I heard that about Kennedy being forced on him. Get the feeling we are going to * this up.

    I agree mate I get the feeling Howe isn't interested in coming, which is a shame because he's been my number one choice, and there's no doubt he's tactically clued up pretty much in the same mould as Rodgers.

    But again on the the flip side if he does want to come and the sticking point is Kennedy being forced on him, then we are an absolute shambles and could well be about to * up an appointment similar to that of Rodgers.

    I think it's done or close to being done. If it wasn't, it's an easy one from either party to distance themselves from. Howe could say, not interested, or not wanting to relocate or my future is in the EPL. Celtic could easily distance themselves also, stating We're looking at all candidates, Howe is a number of names were looking at, or it's not someone were looking at currently.

    Both are silent, when it's an easy to squash.

    He's still gonna be our manager. Desmond is a * * but he's not stupid enough to not allow someone like Howe to bring in his own staff.
