Many Celtic fans have been discussing an update involving Patrick Vieira that recently emerged on social media.
Sky Sports recently relayed the fact that French side Nice have sacked Vieira from his position as the club’s manager after a five-game winless run for the Ligue 1 side. This tweet carried a link to an article on the Sky Sports website.
Do you want Patrick Vieira to manage Celtic?
This tweet involving Vieira caught the attention of many Celtic fans. Some of them urged their club to appoint the former Arsenal midfielder, while others urged Celtic to act in a similar way and sack Neil Lennon.
What did Celtic fans make of this tweet from Sky Sports?
This is how it’s done. Get it sorted @CelticFC

The Nice board clearly don’t treat Patrick Vieira as a friend and share the same concerns as the clubs fans. Interesting idea. https://t.co/X8FPiUQzaL

Celtic’s own manager Lennon has seen the club win only two of their last 11 games in all competitions so far. They recently lost 4-2 to Milan and have already been knocked out of the Europa League. They lost 2-0 to Ross County and got knocked out of the Scottish League Cup (as per Transfermarkt).
They are 11 points behind the Gers in the table too. This update involving Vieira caught the attention of many other Celtic fans.

As the Nice manager, Vieira had a points per match tally of 1.42. He has previously managed New York City FC as well and at the MLS club, the former midfielder managed 90 games and had a points per match tally of 1.58 (as per Transfermarkt).
So he clearly has managerial experience but he’s not won a single accolade in his managerial career. Since Celtic are chasing their tenth title in a row this season, they may need a manager who has the experience of winning titles with clubs. Because of that, Vieira may not be a good option.
