In an exclusive interview with The Transfer Tavern, former Derby County manager Paul Jewell has admitted it will be a concern for Celtic that Eddie Howe is still reluctant to accept their offer to become the club’s new manager.
Howe first entered talks with Celtic over a month ago and despite numerous claims he would be appointed soon, the former Bournemouth manager is still without a job and taking his time over the decision.
Is Eddie Howe the right manager for Celtic?
The 43-year old’s representatives have made it very clear that Howe will not be accepting Celtic’s, or any other club’s, offer to become their manager until at least this summer when he has had time to think everything through.
Speaking on why it is a concern that Howe has yet to accept Celtic’s offer but how it will be a huge club for Howe to manage, Jewell exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“The Eddie Howe to Celtic rumours have been going on for quite some time now it must be about a month, so it will be a little bit concerning that maybe Eddie Howe doesn’t fancy the move.
“Celtic is a huge football club but obviously there’s a lot of work that needs to be done on the team, but it will be a hugely attractive position for somebody.”
It has been a disappointing season for Celtic as they have had to watch Rangers storm to their 55th SPFL title and their rivals are currently one game away from going the whole season unbeaten and are also one point away from reaching 100.
Whoever is appointed as Celtic’s new manager will have a huge rebuilding job on their hands and a big priority will be finding a way to replace influential captain Scott Brown who is joining Aberdeen this summer.
