Which club did Brown join Celtic from?

The main topic of discussion was about who could become the Bhoys’ next first-team manager after Neil Lennon resigned from the role last week.

Various people have been linked with the job, ranging from the likes of Eddie Howe to John Kennedy, while Roy Keane has also been linked with the role.

However, Watt doesn’t think that coaches like have any place in the game anymore.

He said: “I just think that time for coaches is gone now; [there are] very few coaches nowadays that can get away with shouting at players and running them into the ground; the Martin O’Neill style.

“I seen Roy at the weekend basically having a go at the boy [Matt] Doherty at Spurs and then he had the chance to put his own point across and he [said] when O’Neill and Keane were in charge of Ireland it was a complete shambles.

“So, I think that period has now moved on. You can’t just shout at someone and expect them to play well.”

Would you like to replace Lennon?

No, he is rubbish

Yes, he could do a job

TIF Thoughts on Keane…

Although he doesn’t say that he doesn’t want to be the next Celtic manager, we think it is pretty clear from his comments that he feels that the former midfielder would have no place being the next Celtic boss.

has not managed a first-team squad since he left Ipswich Town in 2011, and with both Ipswich and Sunderland, he spent most of his managerial career in the Championship.

So, though he has been linked with the job, we cannot see the Bhoys appointing Keane, and it is clear that Watt would not be happy if that sort of manager were appointed.
