Celtic: Postecoglou and Kennedy update emerges

Celtic: Postecoglou and Kennedy update emerges - Celtic

John Kennedy is considering his future at Celtic, according to a report from the Daily Mail, cited by the Glasgow Evening Times.

The Lowdown: Kennedy’s spell as caretaker

It’s safe to say Kennedy has had a busy few months at Parkhead.

The 4-4-2 style coach was placed in interim charge following Neil Lennon’s resignation back in February and took charge of 10 games, averaging 1.6 points per game.

The Hoops were also knocked out of the Scottish Cup by rivals Rangers under the 37-year-old’s guidance, and it seems as if his days at the club could now be numbered.

The Latest: Kennedy exit update; Postecoglou’s plans

According to the Daily Mail, cited by the Glasgow Evening Times, Kennedy could look at options elsewhere as he has ambitions to become a full-time manager.

He looks set to oversee Celtic’s pre-season preparations before Postecoglou can take over, with the new Hoops boss then likely to bring in his own backroom staff.

That could spell trouble for Kennedy, Gavin Strachan and Stephen McManus, with the trio possibly not in his thoughts, the report states.

How long will Postecoglou be in charge of Celtic?

The Verdict: Should Postecoglou keep Kennedy and co around?

Former Rangers midfielder Kevin Muscat had been linked with a reunion with Postecoglou as his assistant, however, those rumours have since been squashed.

Muscat has experience of winning in Scotland, as does Kennedy, so there’s perhaps an argument for the Australian to keep the Scot around as part of his staff.

However, on the flip side of that, you could say Celtic are now looking at a complete off-park rebuild with Dominic McKay replacing Peter Lawwell and Postecoglou replacing Lennon, so a clean slate could also be a good idea.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens with Kennedy, but it appears he has plans to pursue a managerial career.
