Many Celtic fans greeted Keith Jackson’s Eddie Howe exclusive with extreme caution sprinkled with a pinch of salt.

For the best part of two months they’ve been reading and hearing about the imminent arrival of the former Bournemouth boss. Combine that with Jackson’s past record topped by ‘off the radar’ revelations about a self made billionaire from Motherwell and most fans won’t be believers until Celtic send out their Social Media clips with Howe hoisting a green and white scarf above his head.

The Sun was the first publisher to reveal that face-to-face talks had taken place between Dermot Desmond, Dom McKay and Howe but that story appeared on April which was noted by the sceptics in the Celtic support.

Various suspected appointment dates have been speculated on including a Scottish Cup tie at Ibrox but three months on from Neil Lennon’s resignation there has been no sign of white smoke in the east end.

The SPFL season is over but it was Bournemouth’s Play Off defeat to Brentford that appears to have cleared the final obstacle to the appointment of a new Celtic manager.

Since obtaining Peter Lawwell’s only newspaper interview of 2020 Jackson has been on top of a number of stories from Celtic, the SFA and SPFL. By the end of this week, he could have another scoop on his CV but not all Celtic fans seem convinced that the wait is almost over.
