After Celtic dropped points in the Premiership once again Phil MacGiollaBhain’s tweet sent the Hoops fans into meltdown.
Today’s 2-2 draw away at Hibernian means that Celtic have managed just two wins from their last eight games in all competitions. Simply not good enough for the Hoops and now you have to seriously question how long Neil Lennon has left as manager.
Clearly things have not worked out this season. It is one thing failing to get results but there has not been much in the name of performances either. Something must change. And all signs point towards it being the manager.
Phil MacGiollaBhain is someone who more often than not gets inside news about the club before most people. And one of his recent tweets after the game caught the attention of the supporters.
He tweeted out a picture of Roy Keane with “…” as the caption. Celtic fans took it as a hint that he could be the man next in line to take the manager’s job and it is safe to say that most of them were not impressed:
He should be nowhere near the job, if you want to alienate every player in the squad then he’s your man. Has done nothing in management to suggest he should even be thought about for the job.

An out and out failure as a manager

Now was this even a hint that Keane could be a potential candidate for the job? Who knows? But let’s just hope that that is not the case.
The last time Keane was the manager of a club was back in 2011 when he was leading Ipswich Town. Before that he had had a spell at Sunderland. Over those two spells, his sides had a combined win percentage of 38.7%.
Since then, he has had stints at assistant manager of Republic of Ireland, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest. But let’s just say that his career in manager has not been anything to write home about.
At this point of time, Celtic need a man who can come in and quickly steady. Somebody with a proven past of getting the best out of his players and having the tactical acumen to take on this challenge of getting 10IAR over the line. And nothing suggests that Keane is the man for the job.
