The Daily Record has extended the short list to become the next Celtic manager to seven candidates.
While some of the names listed will be in the thoughts of the Celtic hierarchy the list is mainly guess work as the Glasgow based publisher scans around for bosses that match their own profile of what is required in Ange Postecoglou’s successor.
Graham Potter is on the list alongside Brendan Rodgers, Bodo Glimt manager Kjetil Knutsen is on the list alongside Enzo Maresca (Manchester City assistant), Jesse Marsche, Kevin Muscat and Michel (manager of Girona).
The Record has a clear leaning towards the City Football Group with Muscat, Michel and Marsche coming from the source which produced Postecoglou two years ago.
When Neil Lennon resigned it took Celtic 104 days to announce the appointment of Postecoglou, this time around a new manager should be announced before the end of June to be in place for pre-season training, ideally June 14 should be the date which coincides with the opening of the Transfer Window.
Until a new manager is appointed it is unlikely that there will be any on the record comment from Celtic, while Michael Nicholson has the title of CEO it is likely that Dermot Desmond will have the final say on who will manage the hoops going into the new season.
Just after 7am the Record added Davie Moyes to their list of candidates.
