Rangers fans have been left in stitches by the latest reported development in the Celtic manager hunt.

Multiple major outlets, including The Scottish Sun and Sky Sports, reported on Friday afternoon that talks had broken down between the Hoops and long-term target Eddie Howe.

It’s reported that a deal was close to being finalised but hit ‘unexpected obstacles in the past 24 hours’, leaving it ‘dead in the water’.

It’s thought that Howe’s preferred backroom staff pulled out of the move, with months of negotiations ultimately leading to nothing.

The ex-Bournemouth boss has been a preferred choice for many Hoops supporters for months, but it’s now apparent that he won’t be the next Celtic manager, and that hasn’t gone down well.

Supporters were already riled up following Celtic’s ill-judged season ticket renewals campaign and this update has sparked yet another social media meltdown.
