    Interesting one for Celtic.

    Can anyone else name another manager with a question for a surname?

    The rangers and celtc are similar size clubs, with similar size resources, paying (I imagine) similar wages.
    It is therefore likely when it comes to signings they'll largely be "fishing in the same pool" of players.

    Now imagine you are a signing target for both. Are you going to sign for the former Champions League winning Liverpool legend, England stalwart and current Premier League winning manager Gerard OR the bang average former Portsmouth player, who couldn't stand being as far north as Burnley, whose managerial highlight so far is having Bournemouth playing 'nice' football on a budget 5 times Celtc's AND who comes across like he might cry if you said BOO to him......?

    Get yer cash on the huns for next season's title .

    Celtic's wage bill is supposedly considerably higher than Sevco's and has been for many years now.

    Youíre advising me to bet on rangers to win the league based on some fantasy that theyíll be trying to sign the same players as Celtic, and beating them to it, all season and Gerrardís (who finally won his first major trophy as a manager during a pandemic and the biggest mess of a Celtic team in probably my lifetime) playing career somehow having a huge advantage over a well respected and regarded former premier league manager? Oh and because heís seemingly a decent guy as well, as opposed to the bitter hard man that is Gerrard... because that somehow counts against him too.

    I think Iíll keep my money in my pocket. That logic suggests Keane would be their best likely appointment and easily better than the likes of Jose Mourninho or Sir Alex Ferguson would have been.

    Exactly, very well put. It is a strange appointment for Celtic.

    Ha! Opinions eh...

    I must've missed Roy Keane managing a team to a Premier League title though? Hmmm..

    *I don't know what age you are but if you think this Celtc team are a mess you should Google Stuart Slater, Tony Cascarino and Carl Muggleton's time in the weege 🤣

    Agreed. It has been. But part of that is down to their policy of signing 2,3 or 4 million quid players - hoping to sell them on to English teams for a profit - which has failed spectacularly in the last couple of years. Loads of guys on their books earning serious money and not kicking a ball.

    Opinions indeed! And yep those names definitely before my time ;)

    Iím sure we can both agree that we want both Gerrard and Howe (assuming he is appointed) to be ***** next season 👍

    Assuming Eddie Howe does take the job, does anyone else think that there could be role there for Marv?
    His knowledge of Scottish Football would be a huge asset for Howe and thereís an obvious affinity between them.
    Be a big decision for Marv if it were offered as I would assume it would be in a non playing capacity.

    I donít think players will be seeing it like that. Of course they will be enticed by European football - say Champions League over Europa League but if the wages are similar there isnít much to choose between the different clubs.

    You could say Howe winning the Championship in England is more impressive than Gerrard winning the Scottish Premiership. I agree with another poster itís been one of the worst Celtic teams ever and not just that but other teams..Hibs..Aberdeen and no Hearts has made it easier to win the league.

    Gerrard also had 3 years to get to this point - what other trophies has he won in Scotland during that time ? He was close to the sack last season after several losses.

    This season..St Mirren knocked them out league cup! They should be winning the treble but wonít.

    Beale is one of the main reasons Rangers have done well - heís a great coach - Gerrard actually doesnít coach much just does the management. Howe likes to take the team sessions so will be interesting to see who he brings with him.

    Next season..Aberdeen in transition..Hearts probably similar..Hibs will be pretty similar with a few changes...Celtic having to rebuild. You would expect the Huns to be favourites as will be mostly same players they have spent millions on in the last few years - but would say they are favourites but only just to win league.

    How Howe deals with the pressure of the rivalry and how much backing he gets will determine how successful they are - but heís a good coach and has shown he can get the best from players so should be interesting and like Rodgers an important career step if he wants to use Celtic like Gerrard is using Rangers as stepping stone to bigger things in future.
