I'm raging as well but i'm not that upset that Howe isn't coming. My anger is that Celtic have indulged him for so long. There's a very good living to be made in england working in clubs that aren't expected to win anything and my reading of this is that this is were Howe will end up. There is no such comfort at celtic. You have to win the league. Nothing else matters. If Howe didn't jump at the chance 3 months ago then Celtic should have thanked him and moved on. Why they didn't is the bit that annoys me the most

Hilarious that Celtic fans are trying to spin this in that the Club are too big for him.

Its amateur hour hes asked for certain things to be put in place and hes been denied. Celtic will get another yes man and Stevie G will have another title!

Howe is a young man. Taking on a job like Celtic without the proper back-up team and investment in a squad could see his career ruined.

Dermot Desmond should get the cheque book out for once and appoint Rafa ffs. Throw the money at him that he wants.

Ange Postecoglou apparently now a shoe-in. Honestly had never heard of him. Willing to give him a chance.

Bonkers considering all the big name managers available at the minute! How can Sarri/Conte/Zidane/Rafa/Lampard even not be part of the conversation?!

Thing is...it's not just about the manager, even if this guy is good operator, management is about a backroom team too - when the fraud left in the middle of the night he attempted to take 4 backroom men with him.

They're only out of your league if you've no ambition, not as tho DD couldn't afford all of them. I was hoping DD might have been embarrassed into action tbh.

What happened to Eddie? What about Rafa? More chance getting Eddie the Eagle or Rafa Nadal ffs. Best to looking for Oran Kearney or Stephen Kenny.

Where did you come up with that crock of crap, it's obvious that Celtic said yes to Howe's demands but Howe's 'tech team'  eventually said no.
 An outcome which typifies Celtic's bord management in recent years.

Reasons beyond Celtic and Howes control is what Celtic said in their statement

Doesnt really answer the point though.

Newcastle have signed some dud players by EPL standards but no Scottish side could even think of seriously bidding for those players. The gulf between EPL and SPL is gargantuan

Talk that this Aussie/Greek guy may not have the correct coaching qualifications to take the job. Another Dundalk FC effort this.

He has the equivalent qualifications. Basically has to do a tick box exercise to gain his UEFA pro licence.
