Since then, John Kennedy has been placed in charge on an interim basis as the club’s hierarchy continues to search for Lennon’s successor.
Several big names have been linked with a move to Parkhead, including Roy Keane, Chris Wilder and Rafa Benitez, but according to The Scottish Sun, former Bournemouth boss Howe has verbally agreed to take over the reins at Celtic.
However, the report also states that the 43-year-old’s desire to bring Richard Hughes in from the Cherries to aid his recruitment drive over the summer is delaying the completion of any deal, and it seems as though the supporters are growing tired of waiting.
“Hurry up and get him in this is taking ages man”
“This is no good for ma nerves. Get it done already”
“Get it over the line.”
“Just get the contract signed, he can work in the background while Kennedy sees out this season.”
“Was announced last month pretty much”
