It’s safe to say that it feels like Celtic are stuck in a rut.

The Hoops are 11 points behind rivals Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership and have won just one of their last four league games.

Neil Lennon’s side have also failed to win any of their opening three Europa League group games, with pressure mounting on the Northern Irishman.

The club’s hierarchy are expected to stand by Lennon for the time being, with the manager having no intention of resigning at Parkhead.


One man who has been linked with potentially succeeding Lennon, though, is Eddie Howe. The 42-year-old has been out of a job since leaving Bournemouth back in August.

Howe, who took the Cherries from the bottom of League Two to the Premier League in six-an-a-half-years, recently revealed that his next job would have to be one that ‘really motivated‘ him.

We feel that the club need to act quick and sell a Parkhead move to Howe.

Managers like Howe aren’t on the market for long. The Hoops managed to bring Brendan Rodgers to Celtic Park back in 2016, and a deal for Howe could provide similar results.

Both like to play attractive attacking football, and Howe’s next career move appears to be vital, similar to Rodgers four years ago.

He can become an instant Hoops hero by sparking a Scottish Premiership comeback in the club’s 10IAR bid. A partnership could be as mutually beneficial as they come.

One man who Howe could possibly bring with him to Parkhead is free agent Andre Green.

The versatile forward was let go by Aston Villa recently and has failed to find a new club as of yet.

He could be a useful option in any position across the frontline, and at 22, still has plenty of time to develop before reaching his prime.

Would you like to see Howe at Celtic Park?

Yes

No

Green was actually wanted by Howe back in 2017. He can play on either flank and helped Aston Villa to the Premier League back in 2019.

Celtic appear to be missing something in the final third, and adding Green, as well as a new boss, to their ranks could provide the club with a fresh spark that is needed to get their campaign back on track.
