A lot of have flocked to a post from Daily Record Sport, which contains a link to an article that has comments from Kris Commons on Eddie Howe.

1 of 8

Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

Speaking in his Daily Mail column, the former Celtic man claimed that “Howe is not the messiah” and that “it is difficult to imagine him holding court in the dressing room” (Daily Mail via the Daily Record)

Commons also claimed that if Howe does take the Celtic job, it will be a “culture shock” and that his CV “isn’t in the same league” as Brendan Rodgers’.

This is a pretty brutal assessment of the next potential Celtic manager, and it has not gone down well with these fans.

Celtic could hire Guardiola as manager and Klopp as assistant and Kris Commons would call it a risky appointment.”

More Waffle, So Kris has he not beaten , Man and Spurs away from home so let’s give the guy some credit he gets big game mentality. Did MON play in Europe alot before Celtic? No. He WILL be a great manager Im sure.”

@FKickboxer

Prefer to take opinions from people who didn’t deliberately undermine their own manager when playing for celtic”

@returntomagenta

Do you think Howe could prove Commons wrong?

Yes, he is a great manager

Yes, he is a great manager

No, he isn't that good

No, he isn't that good

Talks for Howe to replace Neil Lennon are said to be progressing, but Commons doesn’t seem keen on the former Bournemouth manager taking over at Celtic Park, which given what he achieved with Bournemouth, seems ridiculous.

This post continued to draw in angry Celtic fans.

Is Commons competing with Boyd to see which Kris can spout the most nonsense in one breath”

Nobody said he was the messiah. Made up baloney. What we do know is we are getting a very good tactical manager.(if he comes)”

@hoopster_88

Kris Commons. Never known someone as negative since victor meldrew! Can’t wait til Howe comes in and is as successful as some of his predecessors that Kris mentions in the article”

@wdobbin86

It will be interesting to see if Howe does become the next Celtic boss and if he does, we hope that he proves Commons wrong.
