Lawwell must be weighing up a move for 1 of these 2 managers after Euro horror

Lawwell must be weighing up a move for 1 of these 2 managers after Euro horror

Last season Brendan Rodgers won the Double Treble to continue Celtic’s dominance north of the border but this season, the Celtic boss hasn’t had the best year so far.

Hearts currently lead the league and with an improved Rangers side and the surprise package of Kilmarnock, the Scottish Premiership is probably the most competitive it’s been in quite some time.

After a summer where the club lost its best player in Moussa Dembele, Brendan Rodgers is now under serious pressure to deliver this season and win Celtic’s 10th successive league title.

However, it seems the former Liverpool boss is already preparing for his exit. Rodgers has already complained about the club’s lack of transfer activity over the summer and even threatened to leave the club if they don’t match his ambitions.

After yet another poor loss in Europe on Thursday night, chief executive Peter Lawwell must surely be considering replacing the manager in the near future.

The Breakdown

While it may seem like an impossible act to follow after such a period of success, the Celtic job is still an incredibly desirable one for any manager.

Following his dismissal from Aston Villa, Steve Bruce could well be on the list of candidates to make the move up north. While some may point to the manager’s poor final season with Villa, overall he did fairly well at the club and was unlucky not to get the side promoted last season.

The second man who could be on his way to Glasgow, is former Leeds manager Paul Heckingbottom.

Widely regarded as one of the best managerial talents in England, the former Barnsley man didn’t have the best of times at Leeds and doesn’t have a wealth of experience in management but he could well be the new age boss to take the side to new heights.
