For starters the news that Eddie Howe had agreed in principle to become the next Celtic manager had me and many Celts alike buzzing that after a shambles of a season there would be a bright light at the end of the tunnel.

Tonight we are seeing that Eddie’s advisers are pouring cold water on the deal, the sticking point being Eddie wanting his own Director of Football, not so much as request but a given at any big club.

Twitter was far from happy and all the more cynical at yet another drawn out saga, should this one play out to the negative, hell mend Lawwell’s legacy, let alone Desmond’s welcome going forward.

Should we miss out on Howe this will start Dominic McKay’s tenure off in a disastrous fashion, should he unveil Kennedy and Strachan then even if supporters are allowed in the stadium, social distancing will still be followed…
