A Twitter account linked to the family of billionaire Celtic owner Dermot Desmond has claimed the Parkhead club have “agreed” terms with the man to challenge Rangers next season.

Describing the unnamed manager as the “outstanding candidate”, Twitter account @gonzagabd1 claims that Celtic has agreed terms with a “potential new manager” who needs time to consider the move to Glasgow.


“Terms agreed with potential new manager who was the outstanding candidate among those spoken to and unanimous first choice,” reads a Tweet from the account.

“Candidate needs time to consider the move to Glasgow but everything else agreed. Hopefully official news soon.”

Rangers won this season’s Scottish Premiership at the earliest juncture in over a century and the Ibrox side will have one eye on who comes in at Parkhead ahead of a massive summer rebuild.

Whilst the account doesn’t name anyone in particular, the tweet comes with the likes of Eddie Howe, Roy Keane and Lucien Favre all being linked to the role.

This account has been in the news recently after it made completely false and very serious allegations that Rangers lied about covid testing during the season.


The account was linked to the billionaire Desmond family by Celtic fan and journalist Liam O’Hare who believes it could potentially be one of Dermot Desmond’s sons.

Whilst O’Hare is clear that he has “no way of definitively knowing” who is behind the account there is a sentiment online that it has particularly close links to the club’s owner for the reasons outlined in the thread above.

The focus however remains on Ibrox this season with Rangers still having plenty to play for in the final furlong of the campaign.

The Gers return to action this weekend in the Scottish Cup whilst the Ibrox club are also on the verge of a legendary unbeaten campaign as fans get ready for Trophy Day.
