Fans of Celtic have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which PA Sport reporter Ronnie Esplin claimed that a win over their Glasgow rivals next week could lead to Celtic fans looking at John Kennedy in a new light.

Following Celtic&8217;s impressive 6-0 win over Livingston on Saturday, Esplin took to Twitter, suggesting that, should the Bhoys defeat Rangers in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup next weekend, fans of the club could be convinced that Kennedy should be appointed as the Hoops’ permanent manager come the summer.

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

Since his appointment after theĀ departure of Neil Lennon back in February, the 37-year-old has overseen five games in charge of the club, winning three and drawing two.

However, in reaction to Esplin’s tweet, fans of Celtic flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing to be rather unconvinced of Kennedy’s credentials for becoming their side’s next permanent boss.

Should Kennedy be given the Celtic job this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

So, what exactly did these Celtic fans have to say in reaction to Ronnie Esplin’s claim regarding John Kennedy?

“This must be a wind-up tweet. Kennedy was part of the problem earlier in the season, through the season and still is a part of the problem. Look at his body language in the dugout.”

@Palma_Bhoy

“No, it won’t.”

@ghosty1879

“No no no no – rookies need not apply. Hopefully, John goes out, learns his trade and comes back to lead us sometime in the future.”

@CelticVerses

“He’s no chance of the Celtic job.”

@Th3IrishParish

“Never going to happen.”

@sammybhoy1967

“Do us all a favour and delete this nonsense.”

@KevMurrayOff

All in all, it would appear that these Celtic fans are not in agreement with Esplin’s take on Kennedy, and, considering the rather sizeable job Celtic face in catching up to their Old Firm rivals next season, perhaps it would be advisable for the club to appoint a manager with a bit more experience than the 37-year-old.
