The Celtic managers position is one that will probably haunt this generation of fans for years.
The mind bendingly, stupid pursuit for Eddie Howe is one that will forever leave me baffled. How a club of our size was left hanging on for so long by someone who had achieved next to nothing in the game is beyond me.
But that is nothing compared to this next claim.
Before the appointment of Ronny Deila, a report [The Sun] has claimed that former Italian hit head Paolo Di Canio was offered the Celtic managers position.
Di Canio’s former assistant, Fabrizio Piccareta, from his Sunderland days said, “Paolo is a man who simply does not compromise. Let me give you an example,
“After we left Sunderland, he received a firm proposal from Celtic and he was offered the manager’s job.
“But Celtic insisted they keep the staff that was there in place already in Glasgow.
“In order not to abandon me and the staff he worked with previously, Paolo refused the job offer.
“That speaks volumes about the man and it shows the human depth of the person.”
This, I believe, would have been a very unpopular appointment by the board due to Do Canio’s seemingly controversial political leanings and looking at his past and how he deals with players, this looks like another bullet that has been dodged by the club.
