Claims that Eddie Howe has agreed in principle or is close to a deal to manage Celtic have been shot down tonight.
Over the last week there has been intense speculation that the former Bournemouth boss is close to a return to football with Celtic without a manager since Neil Lennon resigned on February 24.
Re: Eddie Howe’s move to Celtic. A representative for Howe said: ‘There has been significant interest in Eddie from a number of clubs. However, talks of any deal being close are extremely premature. His plan remains to not return to management until the summer at the earliest.’

Should Celtic offer the manager's job to Eddie Howe
Yes, absolutely. Howe is the perfect fit
No, what has he won?
Howe resigned from Bournemouth when they were relegated from the EPL in August and opted to take time out of football.
It does appear that he is ready to return to management but with no news coming from Celtic his profile has been raised with speculation that he could be a target for Crystal Palace or Newcastle where Roy Hodgson and Steve Bruce are under pressure.
