    Steve Clarke all day long for me. Let's be honest we should have pulled out all the stops to get him after Rodgers left. If we had, we would be on 10 and going for 11. Granted, his football is not free flowing all out attack but he is tactically astute, he is a first class coach, he has bags of experience and he knows how to defend and set up a team. If appointed, i can see Clarke being at the helm for a lot of years - i think he is the perfect candidate to manage our club. Bring him home :ynwacelti

    I agree about McKay - he is still getting paid by the SRFU - Desmond can't come out and talk as if he was already on Celtic's payroll as there would clearly be legal implications.

    I'm pretty sure they are not going to hire someone and then tell McKay, he will obviously be kept up to date and have input.

    I have no time for Lawwell but, if a Dof/Head Coach/Manager are to be appointed before July - he will obviously be involved regards contracts/salary etc as he is still the CEO.

    If it is Harkin/Maresca and possibly some other Man city staff then Lawwell's connections could be useful.

    Desmond knows that Lawwell is away after June 30 - Lawwell may voice an opinion but, in the end, it will be Desmond who makes the choice as Lawwell will not be around to be held responsible for the consequences.

    Don’t think we will see a managerial appointment anytime soon going by that statement.

    The statement is just buying time.

    Why does there always have to be a link? IE desmonds son lawells son Kennedy as a former player!

    Wipe the * slate and start again. We have had loads of success but ultimately the jobs for the boys act and inept club management has failed us in Europe for years and also in our most pivotal season.

    As said before the jobs for the boys has to end. I for one will not be renewing my ST if there’s one inch of favouritism involved next season. Kennedy strachan and nick hammond included.

    Love our club but hate the * who run it!

    Personally I'm hoping for Robbie Fowler. Nose and shoulders above Gerrard.

    Contract discussions etc underway and expect announcement before season ticket renewals sent out.

    It’s not Roy Keane

    I’m not optimistic at all.

    I think at best we’ll get a good manager and we should win the league next season. Honestly I don’t think that’s good enough any more.

    We keep going through extreme boom and bust. We have no consistency in Europe and that’s where we should be judging the success of this club.

    There’s no long term plan to become a European power in any form. We continue to shrink with the occasional good season or two.

    We need wholesale changes at the club and a huge modernisation programme, not just a new manager.

    I’m sure we will be playing some excellent ‘soccer’ next season.

    Are you suggesting it’s Jesse Marsch?

    One of Desmonds comments in that interview left me thinking that the new manager was currently in a job

    Every single claim you’ve made on here has been wrong. * up.

    Been saying it for years, but if we build a team capable of competing in Europe, we have by default a team better than the SPFL.

    We need to stop accepting top seat at a table of 42 diddy clubs (no offence other clubs) and start realising we are not even in the professional league when it comes to CL and we must be building to climb THAT ladder.
