“I hope@CelticFC and@dom_mckay1. If there is any truth in this, have atleast asked the question and don’t wait until after Euros for the answer. I really want Maloney in, but he need to be in for the qualifiers and no later. Which only gives him a few days in between.

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

So he is someone who understands the club well. With the club losing Peter Lawwell, Nick Hammond and Scott Brown, they’d need someone who helps the next manager with what the club is all about. Maloney can be that person.
