They say good things come to those who wait but patience might be wearing thin up at Celtic Park. New boss Ange Postecoglou has failed to hit the ground running and The Bhoys already find themselves some way behind defending-champions Rangers.


Of course it’s not all the former Socceroos coach’s fault, some of the decisions off the pitch have been shocking and recruitment has left a lot to be desired. It’s time like these where someone has to take the fall, so who does Paddy’s traders and punters think is in line to be the next Celtic manager?

Eddie Howe

The impish former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe again features prominently to be the next Celtic manager. He was widely linked after Neil Lennon left and was thought to have held talks with the Parkhead top brass about the job before pulling out. Is the job any more attractive now?


Brendan Rodgers

Never go back. That might be Brendan Rodgers’ mantra, especially after a good spell with Leicester in the Premier League. The ex-Celtic boss features highly on Paddy’s list but surely he’ll be looking at a new challenge next rather than returning to Glasgow.

Lucien Favre

Lucien Favre has some serious pedigree, managing clubs like Nice, Borussia Monchengladbach, Hertha Berlin and, most recently, Borussia Dortmund. He left the Bundesliga giants in 2020 and would certainly bring a wealth of experience to the green half of Glasgow.

Roy Keane

Roy Keane

Let’s be honest, this is the one we all want to see. Roy Keane strutting his stuff at Parkhead again. Unless, maybe, you’re a Celtic fan. But just picture it; Keane v Gerrard on the touchline in the Old Firm. It’s what memes are made of.

Steve Clarke

Another man linked last time around, Steve Clarke led Scotland to Euro 2021 and has his country right in the mix for Qatar 2022 qualifying. Feels like he’s got a good thing going there and would it be worth throwing that away for a very-tricky looking Celtic assignment?

Roberto Martinez

Would Roberto Martinez leave the best team in the world (according to the FIFA rankings, anyway) for the second-best club in Scotland? The Belgium boss might decide that working with Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku is preferable to James McCarthy and David Turnbull. No disrespect, lads.
