Celtic supporters have been reacting on Twitter after a post revealed Eddie Howe’ proposed appointment has reportedly hit ‘several stumbling blocks’.

The Hoops have been without a permanent since Neil Lennon resigned from the Glasgow giants following a 1-0 defeat to Ross County back in February.

John Kennedy has been in interim charge since Lennon’s departure, and the search for his successor has seen several big names linked to the manager’s role at Parkhead.

However, it’s former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe who has become the frontrunner in recent weeks, although, according to the Daily Record, the negotiations have come to a halt due to the 43-year-old’s insistence on bringing his own backroom staff to Celtic Park.

The report also claims that Howe’s request for Bournemouth’s Richard Hughes to be brought in as director of football could alter some of the Celtic hierarchy’s plans and the fans are clearly unhappy with delays.

“Lawwell really needs to sit this one out.”

“The media jumped the gun and are now trying to shift the blame onto Celtic.”
“If there any truth in this, that being able to bring in his own backroom team are in the issue, this board will have an anarchy on their hands they never thought possible”
“Probably trying to force Kennedy into his backroom staff”

“Is it just me or does Hughes have far better credentials than Harkin?”
