Lots of Celtic supporters have been talking about some recent comments regarding the possibility of Chris Wilder managing the Hoops.
Former footballer Paul Robinson was recently talking to Football Insider and made his views clear about the idea of Wilder managing Celtic in the future.
Robinson said that while Wilder may not be the big-name manager that Celtic fans aspire to have, he would instil determination into the side and he has proved himself, saying that Wilder ‘made average players into Premier League players’.
The ex-Leeds United goalkeeper also feels that Wilder did a phenomenal job at Sheffield United with a limited budget and while Celtic have a different structure, the Englishman would be a ‘great choice’ for the Bhoys.
Would Chris Wilder be a good choice for Celtic?
These comments from Robinson were relayed on Facebook by Celtic Insider. Lots of Hoops supporters made their views clear about Wilder.
What do Celtic fans make of Chris Wilder?
Wilder recently left Sheffield United and the reasons being mentioned for it pertain to disagreements with the club’s board regarding transfers, recruitment and having a Director of Football in place.
Wilder had been at Sheffield United since the summer of 2016, picking up a points-per-match tally of 1.59. During his time at the club, Wilder helped the Blades climb from League One to the Premier League, even helping them finish ninth in the top flight last season.
A lot of these Celtic fans don’t want Wilder to manage their club and they’re making their opinions very clear about it.
Considering how Wilder helped Sheffield United grow in status while rising through divisions though, Celtic can certainly benefit from something like that.
They’ve not qualified for the group stages of the Champions League since the 2017/18 campaign and this season, they’ve clearly fallen behind Rangers. So going by his record, Wilder might be able to help Celtic raise their standards.
