Life for Celtic is never simple; the Bhoys and everyone associated with Parkhead have found that out the hard way this season.
They have surrendered their grasp on Scottish football and perfectly embody a medieval fort destroyed by onrushing troops. For Dermot Desmond, there is simply no rest as he tries to repair the rubble.
Celtic have been in advanced discussions with Eddie Howe to find themselves a new manager but the process is becoming rather frustrating.
They have been dealt a number of setbacks with various coaches but the latest name to rear its head again is Jesse Marsch.
Unfortunately, it’s not good news for Desmond or the club’s supporters. That’s because the American coach is now being target by his former employers RB Leipzig according to Sky Germany (via Daily Record).
News of Leipzig’s interest, therefore, only puts further doubt on a move for the RB Salzburg manager.
It doesn’t matter who the coach is, Celtic are being met by an unrelenting brick wall.
Their initial interest in Roy Keane fell flat on the ground while they are now having troubles with Howe, Marsch and Lucien Favre.
Thus, news that Marsch is also a target for other clubs is unlikely to go down well with the Hoops hierarchy.
This saga has been a drawn-out affair and of all the managers to be linked, he is one of the standout candidates.
He has won over 67% of his matches in Austria and has overperformed with Salzburg in the Champions League. His team only just lost to Liverpool 4-3 in the group stages when the Merseysiders were the tournament’s holders.
The 47-year-old won the double in his very first season with the Austrian giants and appears to be improving as a coach all the time.
This was the man that Celtic should have gone all out for; not Howe. Desmond must be tearing his hair out.
