Former Premier League midfielder Lee Hendrie has told Football FanCast in an exclusive interview that Chris Wilder would be a great fit for Celtic.
However, with the ex-Bournemouth boss seemingly stalling as he considers all of his options, Hendrie believes Wilder would be a brilliant alternative.
Like Howe, Wilder is also currently out of work following his departure from the recently-relegated Sheffield United last month.
Speaking exclusively to FFC about Celtic’s search for a new manager, Hendrie said:
“I think Chris Wilder would be brilliant up there; I really do. I think he’d be a great fit for Celtic. I just feel he’s got that little bit of hunger, desire and he’s got that little bit of aura about him.”
If Celtic fail to convince Howe to join the club, then Wilder is definitely an option worth exploring.
While Sheffield United really struggled under him this season, the 53-year-old did an excellent job at Bramall Lane overall.
He took the Blades all the way from League One to the Premier League, guiding them to an impressive ninth-placed finish in English football’s top flight last term.
