This comes after Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph shared a post on his Twitter page saying that from Kennedy’s perspective, the Scottish Cup resuming “opens the door for him to be a serious contender for the Celtic job.”
Joseph also added that as well as the Celtic job, it could also open the door for Kennedy with a managerial position elsewhere.
The journalist finalised his tweet by saying that he doubts that eight league games would’ve been enough to “fully impress” those at the club but that this is a “big opportunity he’s got now.”
This post from Joseph then gathered a number of replies from Hoops fans who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on the journalist’s verdict on Kennedy.
So, what did these Celtic fans have to say in response to Joseph’s post about Kennedy?
“I want us to win every game until now until the end of the season, however, it wouldn’t change my opinion of JK being the manager next season. We need a clean slate, new face, fresh ideas.”
“He could get us reinstated in the Champions League and beat Bayern by 5 in the final and my answer would still be NO!”
“If John Kennedy gets the job shows lack of ambition yet again by the club , however it probably wouldn’t surprise me really”
“Should be nowhere near contention for the job. But we all know he will be offered it”
“Please Anthony… if it’s the cheap option of JK, we may pack it in. Should be nowhere near the full time position”
“He’s been part of this unmitigated disaster. Cannot be part of the 1st team set up next year surely”
“DONT EVEN JOKE”
“Let’s Hope Not”
Looking at the replies to this post from Joseph, it’s clear to see that these Hoops fans are interested in seeing Kennedy taking the role of Celtic’s manager on a permanent basis, despite a potential run of successful results throughout the remainder of the current SPFL season and the Scottish Cup.
Would you be disappointed if Celtic hired Kennedy as their new permanent manager?
However, with Kennedy himself saying that he doesn’t see his current spell in charge of the club as a potential audition for the role on a permanent basis, this points to the suggestion that he would be okay with allowing the club to hire a new manager when the time comes, which should satisfy this group of supporters.
