Regular readers will recall that on 23rd February last season I ran odds on whether there would be a new Celtic manager. Many complained it was a betrayal of some sort, but I disagreed. I backed the last manager because I felt the board couldn’t sack a successful manager but Celtic fans were openly talking about a replacement and since this is a fans site for fans I was reflecting what we, the Celtic fans, were discussing. When he did leave I fully back the arrival of Tony Mowbray. It is therefore with a very heavy heart that I bring you a Paddy Power exclusive: Celtic Manager odds for start of season 2010/2011.
Despite his interview with Clyde this week discussing his lack of interest in returning to the goldfish bowl of Glasgow and the tedium of Scottish football where we play the same dross 4 times a season, Paul Lambert is favourite at 3/1. Some notable names then follow.
Must be appointed on a full-time permanent contract
I dearly hope all of these are wrong. I still want to believe that Tony Mowbray can deliver the football that I know he desperately wants to. Unfortunately defeat in the Scottish Cup next week will end that. Even if we win the cup I can still see a mutual consent ending of our relationship.
If we win the cup and finish less than 7 points behind Rangers I would back Tony for next term, but if I can offer one piece of advice to Tony it is that nothing is impossible and despite printing the above odds, part of me still believes that at 8/1 we’re worth a flutter.
