REPORT: HOWE ‘SPOKEN TO’ CENTENERY LEGEND TO JOIN TEAM. ARE CELTIC FANS READY FOR THIS?
A report has surfaced today that Eddie Howe has spoken to former Celtic warhorse Peter Grant to join his backroom team when he officially takes over the reigns at Paradise.
Grant was pivotal in his role in the famous Centenry Double season way back in 1988 where he helped Celtic lift the league and Scottish Cup double as part of a midfield duo with Paul McStay.
The boy from Bellshill, nicknamed ‘Peter the Pointer’ genuinely loved playing for the Hoops and it now looks like he could be in line for another sensational return to his boyhood heroes if Howe gets his way.
Grant was part of the ill fated Tony Mowbray era in season 2009/10 but with rumours of a bust up with Neil Lennon at the time, it seemed that was enough to end his coaching career at Paradise the first time around.
However, Grant could be in for a sensational and emotional return as part of Howe’s backroom team and if he is brought on board, one thing is for sure, the lack of commitment and passion shown by the players this season will most certainly not be tolerated by Grant and that is definitely something that is required at Celtic Park next season.
