    Kennedy has now been part of the coaching set up under 3 managers; Delia, Rodgers and Lennon.

    Two of those managers ultimately failed and were sacked / allowed to resigned yet Kennedy remains.

    Personally it doesn’t sit right with me. I can already imagine him being forced upon the next manager.

    Is Gavin Strachan still there too?

    Don’t think the Scottish cup is going ahead. Is it? Somebody correct me if I’m wrong. Think I heard it on Tims podcast.

    He might be a nice guy but after what we have seen on display he brings absolutely * all to the table

    We have been poor at back for years he needs to get his jotters

    This.

    We were rank at the back with Virgil and Denayer at our disposal (2 of our best CBs since arguably MoN) and with Kennedy organising them.

    As clueless as Lennon has been the amount of times I've seen him turn to Kennedy for an opinion and he shrugs his shoulders and looks gormless is unreal.

    Think it's definitely in doubt mate, but a final decision hasn't been made.

    Huge few months for this man, time to show us what he’s made of. Celtic have invested a lot of time and money on this lad, now as fans we wait with baited breath to see if the hype and rave reviews are warranted. I have my doubts but always happy to be proved wrong.

    Only way he gets the job is if he totally transforms this team ie showing he has tactical nouse,can make us solid at the back,playing attractive winning football,basically away from the football we have had this season,will be interesting to see if he brings any players in from the cold or brings a youngster into the team aswell

    Stooge #1 resigns and we replace him with stooge #2. I hope it's for 8 games ONLY.

    We’re repeatedly told he’s not our defensive coach, but he was a defender (albeit for 5 minutes) so you’d at the very least expect him to try and have some input to help us defend.

    I mean you wouldn’t expect him to chirp in and try and give eddie some scoring advice ect so what exactly does he bring?

    Also another thing that bugs me is when we where attacking during a corner, big Jullien would more often than not win the header and score. But when we where defending a corner we nearly always concede. Why not just tell Jullien to have free reign of our box to win a header?

    Why do folk keep saying he's defensive coach?

    Not defending him btw he should've gone aswell.

    * zonal marking and players not having a clue how to operate in it.

    Given there is only 8 league games left ( thank *) I would think it would be doable if you used midweeks to get the cup games in.

    I have no idea what the guy does, or how he has managed to hold onto so many decent roles.

    Best of luck albeit him being in charge excites me as much as an old womans American tan tights.

    Just got to get behind him and the team for the remaining games. This is temporary and only will be for now. Maybe down the line if he moves on and gets into management and proves himself we could see him again. He surely has to go at the end of this season to a different club he can’t just hang around here forever.
