Sheffield United parted ways with Chris Wilder on Friday, ending his five-year stint at Bramall Lane.
And, following that big development, Sheffield United News report that sources have dropped an eight-word claim regarding a move to Glasgow, saying ‘he could be on his way to Celtic’.
They believe he could be the new man at Parkhead following his United departure, with the Blades winning just four of a possible 28 league games this season.
Wilder’s impressive Sheffield United spell
The 53-year-old took charge of 227 games for the Blades, taking them from League One to the Premier League.
Would you take Wilder at Celtic?
Transfer Tavern take
Wilder has won three promotions during his career and his recent experience of rebuilding the Blades is impressive.
On that basis, he could be a shrewd appointment by Celtic, who seemingly need to undergo a rebuild of their own following a woeful 2020/21 campaign.
It remains to be seen how concrete the links are, but we feel this is certainly a major development in regards to Celtic’s search for a new manager.
