Aston Villa

Aston Villa rocked as Celtic prepare to sound out top managerial target

Nigel Pearson

It’s been silly season for the Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern since Ronny Deila announced his imminent departure from the club, with our Glasweigian punters sinking their teeth into all sorts of rumours in regards to who the new man in charge might be.

Well, the divisive figure of Nigel Pearson has done exactly that. Divide.

Following reports from the Daily Express that the out of work former Leicester City coach is in line for the job, our punters seem somewhat unsure.

He kept the Foxes up last season in stunning circumstances and they have since gone on and progressed into the most unlikely title winners in the history of English football.

Still, his tenure at the King Power Stadium last term was marred in controversy, at times becoming a hostile environment.

It is claimed that the former Hull City coach is under major consideration with movers, shakers and decision makers behind the scenes at Parkhead, despite his strong links with the vacant Aston Villa post.

The 52-year old will reportedly be sounded out as to whether he would be interested in the job, with the Hoops gearing up for the return of arch rivals Rangers to top flight Scottish football.

Celtic fans, would you take Pearson? Want a bigger name? Could this be a blessing in disguise for Villa?
