Red Bull Salzburg head coach Jesse Marsch has been tipped as a good fit to replace Neil Lennon at Celtic in the media recently.
And now, the American, under contract with the Austrian giants until 2022, says the links to Parkhead are an ‘honour’, describing a possible Glasgow switch as ‘interesting’.
However, Bundesliga commentator Derek Rae has had his say on a possible move, believing the 47-year-old’s future lies in Germany.
Rae shared a tweet on Wednesday morning regarding Marsch, to which he was asked by a Celtic fan if the Hoops are in contention for Marsch.
Do you want to see Marsch at Celtic?
The commentator replied, believing Celtic can’t compete with the likes of Borussia Monchengladbach and Leipzig.
“I don’t think they can compete with Gladbach or Leipzig & don’t think Marsch’s would jump to Celtic knowing what is likely in his future. He’s a polite man who has gone a long way in a short time & will be flattered to be linked with the job. But the Bundesliga is his future.”
Transfer Tavern take
Rae’s six-word admission, ‘I don’t think they can compete’, could upset some Celtic supporters who now want to see the American in Scotland following his comments.
With Marsch so openly sharing his feelings towards a possible Celtic Park move, we feel as if the Hoops now have to follow up and at least ask the question.
It seems as if the club will appoint a director of football before a manager, however, with time ticking, the Hoops may have to act relatively fast to seal Marsch’s services as he appears to be attracting plenty of interest from the Bundesliga.
