According to The Daily Record, Celtic are not going to announce the appointment of Eddie Howe anytime soon.

The report has claimed that former Bournemouth boss Howe is the ‘red hot favourite’ to become the new manager of the Hoops.

It has been claimed that talks are still going on, and that an announcement is not imminent.

The positive from this report is that negotiations are going on, and it looks likely that Howe will become the new Celtic manager.

However, with no announcement imminent, it does raise concerns on the club’s transfer business this summer.

The season is not officially over yet, but it will be in just days. John Kennedy is in charge at the moment, and while he has done a decent job since replacing Neil Lennon as the interim-manager, it is important that the club make a decision soon.

Lennon stepped down as the Celtic manager back in February, and the season for the Hoops was virtually over a while ago.

Howe has not been without a managerial role since last summer following his departure from Bournemouth.

The 43-year-old Englishman has been a ‘free agent’ all along, and Celtic fans will be perplexed as to why it is taking so long to get him in.
