Rangers fans have been left in stitches by the latest reported development in the Celtic manager hunt.
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.
Given the stability at Ibrox right now with Steven Gerrard at the helm and reinforcements already secured for the title defence, Rangers supporters are watching the shambles at Celtic Park from a strong position and they are very much enjoying the show.
Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:

I assume he wasn’t impressed when Celtic offered him a £50 voucher (expires in September)for the club shop 🤣

Wasn’t bothered about him tbh but this would be funny since it’s all Celtic fans have spoke about for past 13 weeks 😂😂
