Celtic: Nixon addresses Howe twist

Celtic: Nixon addresses Howe twist - Celtic

Celtic’s pursuit of Eddie Howe has seemed to have taken a hit in recent days.

Reports had suggested that a deal for the former Bournemouth boss would be announced this week, however, that hasn’t come to fruition.

Howe’s representative moved to play down an imminent move to Parkhead on Wednesday, revealing the 43-year-old has no plans to return to the dugout until the summer.

Is Howe the right man for the Celtic job?

Yes, absolutely

Yes, absolutely

No, could've done better

Nixon replies to Howe-related tweet

Well-known reporter Alan Nixon, who writes for The Sun, has now responded to a question on Twitter, where he was asked what has changed for Howe and a move to Glasgow.

Nixon replied:

“A lot of panic over an anonymous quote… if he’s playing games to get his own men in that’s a risk… if he’s a bottler you’re better off finding that out now.”

How well do you know Celtic’s transfer business? First up, how much did Odsonne Edouard cost in 2018? *Fees from Transfermarkt*

Transfer Tavern take

Nixon’s comment ‘playing games to get his own men in’ is likely related to Richard Hughes.

Celtic want to bring in a director of football ahead of the summer, and it seems as if Howe wants to take Hughes (Daily Record) from Bournemouth.

Whether or not that is a deal-breaker remains to be seen, but it appears as if both the Hoops and Howe are reluctant to rush negotiations.

To us, that is the right decision, based on the fact Neil Lennon was offered the permanent Parkhead job in the shower back in 2019.

A more professional approach is underway this time around, which, in the long run, should be beneficial.
