BBC Sport pundit Scott McDonald has made it clear that Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez won't be tempted to make a switch to Celtic in the summer.
The former Hoops striker claimed that the Spaniard wouldn't want to move up to Scotland and he wouldn't be tempted by the money potentially being offered.
Speaking to Sportsround on BBC Radio Scotland (16/05/2019), McDonald explained why Celtic will find it difficult in trying to lure a man like Benitez to the club.
"They are going to want to come to the club," McDonald told Sportsround. "Brendan Rodgers was on £3 million a year. How much do you think Rafa Benitez is on at Newcastle? I'd say double that. So, what, he's going to come for £3 million a year?
"He has to want to come to the club. Brendan wanted to come to the club. He wanted to establish himself here. He [Rafa] is in in the Premier League."
Neil Lennon is currently at the helm after he re-joined the club in February following the abrupt departure of the now-Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers in February.
Since returning to Parkhead, Lennon has pushed Celtic over the line and won the Scottish Premiership title. Added with that, he has guided them to the Scottish Cup final.
But their recent defeat to their Old Firm rivals and the style of football they have played has not sat down to well with some of the supporters.
