Former Premier League midfielder Adam has been speaking on the PLZ Football podcast discussing the vacant Celtic managerial role

The 35-year-old spoke of a potential candidate for the Celtic managerial role following the departure of Neil Lennon last week as a result of their disappointing season.

Scotland manager Steve Clarke has been linked to the job after leading the national side to their first major tournament in 23-years as they head to this summer’s Championships.

Adam believes Clarke, who stands at 5ft 8 inches (1.78m) would find it difficult to turn down the proposition of becoming the next Celtic manager if he was offered it after the Euros campaign:

“If he can have a good Euros I think he will be in consideration for the Celtic job because of what he’s done as a manager in England, but also up at Kilmarnock – he’s got experience of being at big clubs,” Adam said.

“So they’ll definitely be looking at him, but you know, the position of Dermot [Desmond] is he’ll be doing it right and he’ll wait until you know this is over with and then you make the decisions, but it will be very difficult to see Steve turn down the Celtic job if it did come around.”

Should Steve Clarke be offered the Celtic job?

Yes

Yes

No

No

TIF Thoughts on Adam’s comments…

The Celtic managerial job will arguably be one of the hottest on the market at the minute. Clarke has worked wonders with the national side and will manage them at the Euros, however, he could be very tempted by the offer if it is put his way with the prospect of Champions League football on offer at Parkhead despite their failure to win the league.

Clarke has proven he can manage in the Scottish Premiership during his time at Kilmarnock and with bigger names in the Premier League – he could make an interesting appointment.
