Tony Adams could find himself back in club management fairly soon if his own ‘reporting’s’ are to be believed?

And this could see the former Pompey manager take the reigns at Celtic! He says that the job does ‘appeal’ but he has had ‘no phone calls’ about the post at the moment.

He also said that with a former Celtic manager Wim Jansen ‘said’ to be in line for a technical director post the Dutchman is ‘claimed’ by Adams to have been recommended by him as ‘the man they needed to go and get.’ And a set-up with an advisor above him appeals to him.

The guy endured a horrendous time in charge of us, and although you need more than luck this can go a long way in this game, and you cannot imagine that he could have any more of this go against him!

His management skills are still very much ‘questionable’ to say the least though I guess after a couple of, shall I say ‘disappointing’ cracks at this so far…

‘Links’ to the job have surprised me I must admit, although not as much as they have Celtic and Jansen himself it would seem… Celtic denying this and Jansen said he did not know anything of what was being claimed and has not even talked to our former manager for some time!

But, lets say, if he got the chance to manage them, granted it is looking increasingly unlikely, I would wish the guy all the very best, I have always had a lot of time for him – he might well need this luck though as I seem to recall the last England legend to manage Celtic did not go too well!

John Barnes was sacked within months, despite having a Celtic legend in the form of Kenny Dalglish helping him and overseeing things. Again though, any form of partnership is now looking increasingly unlikely?

Good luck Tony, if of course you do get that ‘phone call’ offering you the post? Without wanting to do him any discredit, not too many seem that keen on that job though do they…
