I have just read on the BBC Football site that Gordon Strachan has resigned from Celtic.
They are bound to come knocking at our door with Davey being an ex-hoop and the attraction is obvious. Here's hoping that he resists but it is a worry... hasn't he said he would consider Celtic if they came in for him?

If they’d come in for him last summer when he was having his ’wobble’ I think he’d have jumped at the chance.
If he has a chance to keep our current squad together with a realistic chance of two quality additons this summer then WHY ? would he go. Celtic are way below where we are now in terms of quality, they are in a ’mickey mouse league’ and will be out of their depth in the CL.
However, I guess the ball is as always in our chairmen’s court, lets hope we’ve got the ambition to move onwards & that our manager is still convinced we can.

Loads of money comes into it too and Celtic would have to buy out his contract to get him. But that process only begins when he says he wants to go. It's not never, but it's not now.

Money is DESTROYING the Premier League, all your core mid-table teams are being relegated into an abyss which they can't recover from because of the difference in money. Half the teams in the Premier League next year will be mickey mouse teams, ha ha.
And Mcliesh left the SPL because he was being replaced as Rangers manager by Paul Le Guen who had just won 3 in a row with Lyon, Champions of France, he left them to go to the SPL. The english totaly underate the SPL ? your all daftys.

Everton v Arsenal, Celtic v Falkirk, Everton v Chelsea, Celtic v Kilmarnock. Then comes the big scottish cup clash against Brechin or Cowdenbeath. Even an English League One side would do well in the SPL and for a manager like Moyes it wouldn?t be a challenge. Top 2 every season, GUARANTEED.
If he goes, he?s an idiot and deserves to be bored shitless every week watching his completely average Celtic team thrash a decidedly less than average St Johnston or Hamilton Academicals team.

I don’t think some people are quite understanding the emotions of a person’s hometown club. Even if logically Everton would be a better option, the idea of managing Celtic might still tempt him.
Also, at the moment the big four clubs in England might not consider Moyes because he hasn’t won anything. A few years gathering league titles, cups and Champions League experience might elevate him to a position to be Sir Alex’s successor. Come on, even we point to Moyes’ trophy record sometimes to doubt his ability.
However I hope he stays.

It got me thinking, maybe the Scot thing is a coincidence, but how everything seems so parallel to Everton at the moment under our Davd Moyes. I see Sky are already linking Moyes & Coyle to the vacant Celtic job, there is no way either of these managers would leave their clubs for that position. They are building a reputation in sound quality clubs. Yes, I've had a few drinks... but after watching one Wembley win today, I'm hoping I see another one on Saturday ? C'MON YOU BLUES!

It’s not as far fetched as some think. Moyes is a Bhoy. Celtic v Falkirk? Yes. Also don’t forget or underestimate your just as likely to see Celtic v. Barcelona, or Celtic v. Real Madrid... Champions League is quite a lure.
Celtic has not had a love in with Strachan. He’s been very successful, but does not play the Celtic way. Moyes would be welcomed with huge open arms, and I can see them breaking the bank to get him.
I hope I’m completely off and he stays. But this has much more merit I think than some are giving it. The SPL is admittedly not the EPL, but Celtic is a huge club and Moyes loves them. And more importantly, they would love him in return - trust me on that one.
I personally would not be as gutted as most here if he went, but I hope to God he stays.
This has some possibilites I think....
Maybe just the possibility he could leave might open some folks eyes that he is a massive asset to Everton, and he should be apprecitated to the maximum degree.
Put it this way, the entire family of Celtic FC would lay palms at his feet on his way into Glasgow....

Someone has already suggested Jol (who, let's not forget took Spuds to within a dodgy curry of the Champion?s League, got sacked, and the team imploded) ? not a bad suggestion, but I?d be tempted by Roy Hodgson, another manager who seems to understand how to take a team with limited resources up the league, buy well (and cheaply), play decent footie, and he isn?t a complete and utter tosspot.
I think it?s all academic, and would be very surprised and a little gutted if it happened, but I think Hodgson would be an adequate replacement, and he?d be keen to come to the next top 4 club (and FA Cup Winners to boot). ;-)
