fans are preparing to move on and drop expectations of taking over as manager.

Over the last week there has been growing speculation, and confidence that the former Bournemouth boss was set to end the search for a new boss.

When the Scottish Cup draw on Sunday sent the hoops to Ibrox it seemed like the timing was right for Howe to come in, raise confidence and see exactly what he was inheriting.

Since The Sun reported face-to-face talks with and Dom McKay last week every aspect has been positive with speculation over signing targets and who would make up the backroom staff.

Tonight, however a tweet from Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail and a report from Sky Sports have sunk expectations that Howe to Celtic is a done deal. Howe No as one fan put it on .

It is now six weeks since Neil resigned and just over three months till the first match of next season- a Champions League qualifier that could lead to a £30m payday.

On April 19 Dom McKay will join Celtic to shadow Peter Lawwell, taking over as CEO on July 1.

If Howe is backing off, or the media has been off the scent some quick movement is required with the Renewal campaign essential for all of next season’ plans.
