Chris Sutton outlines what he finds almost laughable about Celtic

Celtic have yet to announce who the manager will be when Ronny Deila leaves at the end of the season.

Chris Sutton has criticised Celtic in The Daily Record for not appointing a new manager yet.

Ronny Deila is in charge of Celtic at the moment, but the Norwegian will leave the Scottish Premiership giants at the end of the season.

The Bhoys’ season is virtually over, as they have already clinched the league title in Scotland and have nothing to play for.

Former Celtic striker Sutton has suggested that the Glasgow giants should have appointed a new manager by now.

“It does surprise me there’s not a man in place already,” the Englishman wrote in The Daily Record. “Every hour is crucial to give the new boss every chance to be successful in the qualifiers.

“The most important games of Celtic’s season are just 10 weeks away and we still don’t know who will be in charge. It’s almost laughable.”

While Sutton does have a point, perhaps Celtic’s view is that announcing a successor to Deila would be disrespectful to the Norwegian.

Maybe the Bhoys already have someone lined up, and perhaps they will announce him once Celtic have played their final game of the season.

The Hoops will take on St. Johnstone away from home at McDiarmid Park in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday evening before facing Motherwell at Celtic Park on Sunday afternoon.
