Eddie Howe covers his back as interview shows how we won a watch with Ange
I never thought I would be writing about this guy again. Eddie Howe was the scourge of the year for Celtic as he led the club a merry dance for three months whilst we all waited for him to join the club after the sacking of Neil Lennon.
As the debacle ran on and on, many fans were starting to get impatient with the man that was once touted for the England job.
When he eventually led the club, on the cusp of a promise, to the back of the bike sheds he delivered a last minute knock back as he seemed to get cold feet at the challenge that awaited him in Glasgow.
And his latest interview about the task at hand with his new club, Newcastle, shows that Celtic are well shot of him.
As reported by PLZ.com, Howe was asked about how he planned to stop the club from being relegated when he said, “I can’t make any promises on that, but I can promise that the people above me, the owners, will support the team and support me in trying to achieve what we need. That’s all I can say at this time.
“It would be foolish of me to make rash promises or statements. My priority at the moment is to get the best out of the players we have.”
What a far cry from what we have in Ange Postecoglou. Celtic have a manager full of positivity, a vision for the future and a plan of how to get there.
Howe seemed devoid of any ideas, full of empty promises and a statement that reeked more of I’ll look after myself with being completely non commital.
How lucky are we to have Ange?
