Celtic fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest news concerning Rafael Benitez, who was heavily linked with the Parkhead hotseat after becoming a free agent last weekend.

This comes after Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph shared a post on his Twitter page revealing that Benitez “has been contacted by a number of clubs in Europe” and that he “is waiting for the perfect club, ideally in the EPL” to join after leaving his job at Dalian Pro in the Chinese Super League (as per The Mirror).

Which club did Brown join Celtic from?

Joseph also added that Benitez “won’t be taking up any vacancy which may arise at Celtic, nor will he consider Newcastle under Mike Ashley at this time”.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Celtic fans who were quick to share their thoughts on this latest news.

So, what did these Celtic fans have to say in response to this news about Benitez? 

“Not the news I wanted to hear sunshine” 

@pgfb1888

“pain.”

@adammccaff

“Surely not a surprise to anyone? Unless Lawwell goes I doubt any good manager will come to us” 

@PaulMcG1994

“Anything else to kill us with today”

@McgregorC90

“Anthony stop making me sad”

@LukeBreslin2

“Cheers Anthony. Away crying now.”

Looking at the replies to this post from Joseph, it appears that these Celtic fans aren’t happy that Benitez is reportedly not interested in taking the manager’s job at Parkhead.

Do you think Rafa Benitez would be an upgrade on Neil Lennon?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given how the Bhoys have fallen 23 points behind Rangers at the top of the SPFL table prior to their midweek league clash against Hamilton Academical, and the fact that some fans have called for current manager Neil Lennon to leave the club, it’s understandable why they are disappointed by this news.
