Andy Halliday has told Open Goal’s Right In The Coupon that he believes Celtic could be working in the background to appoint a new manager and that a deal could be “all but done” – having shared details of Steven Gerrard’s move to Rangers.
Celtic continue to scour ther market for a new name to take the club forward, following Neil Lennon’s resignation last Wednesday. Eddie Howe seems the favourite, while Frank Lampard, Walter Mazzarri and Roberto Martinez have been discussed.
John Kennedy remains in interim charge, beating Aberdeen 1-0 over the weekend in his first game in charge. Celtic sit 15 behind Rangers, but Gerrard’s men have a game in hand and only need seven points to claim the Scottish Premiership title.
Speaking over who Celtic should appoint, ex-Rangers midfielder Halliday has stated that he feels Celtic could have a manager “all but done” behind the scenes – as he knew about Gerrard’s appointment six weeks before it was announced in 2018.
