Lucien Favre throws his name into the hat.

https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/lucien-favre-interested-celtic-manager-23819120

Embarrassing for the chap who want to pretend the likes of Keane, Lennon or Kennedy are acceptable appointments.

Big name managers will be interested in a job at the club of Celtic's stature so there is no reason why we should be looking at Nottingham Forest's assistant manager.

I can say I am truly embarrassed. I see he has entered the race alright and the bookies have him at 66-1

He's interested but Celtic would rather appoint a chump.

The issue is that fans seem happy to justify us appointing lads that were sacked at Bolton and Hibs for the job as big managers would not be interested. That is nonsense, Lennon was not appointed because he was the best candidate available, he was appointed as he was a cheap option yes man who Lawwell knew he could control.

Keane would be a case of Desmond appointing one of his heroes even though he hasn't managed in a decade, his last job in football was as an assistant manager at a Championship club, has a poor record  in management and is combustible hothead who will walk away when things get rocky.

Kennedy is a case of another Lennon type yes man appointment.

Big managers are interested in taking on the Celtic job. Are Celtic interested in appointing a big name manager who might have ambitions and expectations of being backed with the right resources, who will want the best players retained ? That's the issue.

Celtic are still a big draw but the lack of ambition from the board is the issue. People who are spinning another narrative need to wake up and see this.
If Stephen Kenny were to get the road what would peoples thoughts be on him going to Celtic?

Unless you mean a big name literally like Paul Heckingbottom or Quique SŠnchez Flores?

It's the Celtic job ffs. A level above Crawley or Morecambe. Sure Oran Kearney got the St Mirren Job one time. No big names are looking at that job. No matter what Celtic's deluded fans think. And what's more, a drunken sailor could manage Celtic to win that league. Celtic are the only team in it and still shit the togs this year. They came second in a one horse race.
Much as I hate to admit it, itís now very clearly a 2 horse race. That other shower had a brilliant season and even got a few decent results in Europe.

Lol, tell us the last time Crawley or morecambe reached the last 16 of the Europa league. With the champions league changes in the next year or 2 and an automatic group spot for Scotland the Celtic job is very attractive at the moment. Hence why some very big European names have expressed an interest.

Eddie Howe being strongly linked now.

I'd be content with Howe. I would have a few different preferences but I think he has the type of profile that fits the bill.

Hopefully he can persuade Edouard and Ajer to extend their contracts.

Yep Iíd be happy enough with Howe, heíll bring a more professional approach to the club and will be hands on when it comes to training, Iím thinking heís been promised a substantial transfer kitty as its imperative we win back the league at the first time of asking, could we be heading in the right direction after this seasonís complete mess!!

Daily Record reporting that he has turned down two offers from the EPL and Celtic is his preference.

Once again defeats the propaganda the EPL diehards paint on here.

One thing about Howe is that he was a bit of a disaster on the transfer market with Bournemouth. Spent a packet on young English players like Ibe, Solanke, Cook, Brooks, Mepham etc who really failed to deliver for him at Bournemouth. Celtic don't have the resources to shop in England so hopefully he'll more comfortable in trying to build a team with players from Europe and further abroad.

I also hope there are no loan deals this season as they are just a short term fix.

Looks to be a decent appointment and willing to back the new manager. Hopefully a minor clear out of the squad follows

Why is that? He basically got offered 2 Championship jobs but Celtic have European football so are a slight step above.

Eddie Howe is the right appointment for Celtic.

Eddie Howe be good for Celtic and Celtic be good for Eddie Howe. The worse thing that happened him was when he got money to spend, bought badly and sealed his faith.

The comparisons to Brendan Rodgers wills be made but he a good coaching type of manager who will play football and sets his teams up well.
