5 Celtic players Nigel Pearson needs to axe in the summer if he joins – Agreed?

The announcement that Ronny Deila will be leaving Celtic this summer has sent the proverbial rumour mill into overdrive North of the Border.

A plethora of managerial names have been linked with what is undoubtedly one of the biggest jobs in British, if not European football, including the likes of David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers.

More left-field suggestions in the shape of Ryan Giggs and Steven Evans have surfaced, though a more unexpected name is the latest to appear.

The out of work Nigel Pearson is thought to be a target for both Aston Villa and Middlesbrough, though has most recently been mooted as a potential candidate for the Glaswegian giants.

Despite his sacking at the start of the season, the 52-year old has arguably never seen his stock higher after leading Leicester to a great escape last season and laying the foundations for a title surge this time around.

Due to his nature, the former Hull City coach will more than likely be a controversial appointment should he arrive at Parkhead.

However, that doesn’t necessarily mean a particularly bad one.

Somehow, the Hoops appear to have stagnated despite winning five consecutive league titles and the return of Rangers to the top flight will mean some fight needs to be instilled back into the ranks.

There are few better options to do so than that.
