Diego Laxalt recently caused quite a stir on a gaming platform in regards to Celtic’s managerial hunt.
He was heard reading out a message: “Diego you meet Eddie Howe yet?” He replied: “No no no, tomorrow.”
These ten words led to many Celtic supporters thinking the Hoops were closing in on the former Bournemouth boss as Neil Lennon’s long-term replacement.
Who do you want the next Celtic boss to be?
Laxalt clears up Howe confusion
It didn’t take long for Laxalt’s apparent admission on Howe to make its way on to social media, however, the left-back has now cleared up any confusion.
The 28-year-old, as reported by The Scottish Sun, took to Instagram to ask for the relevant clip to be taken down, admitting he was mistaken with Hoops striker Odsonne Edouard.
Transfer Tavern take
There’s never a dull moment when it comes to Celtic’s search for a new manager, but a first-team member revealing the new boss on a gaming platform would’ve been extremely bizarre.
However, with Laxalt now clearing up any confusion, that story can be put to bed.
Howe has been linked with the vacant Parkhead position, though, so who knows, we could still see the 43-year-old move to Glasgow ahead of the 2021/22 season, and Laxalt would have two Eddies to mix up if his loan is made permanent.
