Blues Boss Lambert Linked With Celtic
Monday, 7th Dec 2020 20:35
Town boss Paul Lambert is being linked with the manager’s job at Celtic with current incumbent Neil Lennon coming under increasing pressure.
Lennon has tonight received a vote of confidence from the Parkhead board with his side sitting second in the Scottish Premiership, 13 points behind Rangers, although with two games in hand.
According to 90 Min the Bhoys are weighing-up whether to make a move for Lambert should they decide to jettison Lennon.
Lambert played for Celtic between 1997 and 2005, during which time he won four league titles, two Scottish Cups, two Scottish League Cups and was Scottish Football Writer's Player of the Year in 2002.
The Scottish champions have also been linked with a number of other managers including former boss Martin O’Neill, Eddie Howe and Gordon Strachan with Lambert currently well down the betting at 20/1 with the bookies.

Best transfer rumour of the season

Not a chance but can we petition Celtic

Really good manager, German football specialist and Celtic legend, just gets it with the club etc,
|Saxonblue74 added 20:45 - Dec 7|
So, a manager contracted for a further 4 years is linked with a job that currently isn't available? Funny old game isn't it??!!

Queue the "i'll drive him there myself" comments.
I for one, think Lambert will get us up. Some of the stick he gets is unjust. I remember how many of you were saying in those lofty Championship days, I'd rather be in league 1 playing our youngsters than watching what MM served up. Be careful what you wish for.

Feel sure, should such an approach be made, he’d turn it down. Much prefer to stay employed by ME🤪🤞

As much as I hope I can't see it with already getting rid Lennon from same era.

Just watch as this story generates more comments than our win on Saturday!

4 more years on his contract left here. Just imagine the compensation ME would demand! :)
|prebbs007 added 21:13 - Dec 7|
Please Please Please. I’ll drive him up there tomorrow.

This really is a nothing story isn’t it ..... Lambert is waaaaaay down the pecking order for Celtic given the potential managers on that betting list.
|runaround added 21:14 - Dec 7|
Well I suppose he has played for big clubs!
Won the champions league too apparently!
|BrandonsBlues added 21:17 - Dec 7|
The sad thing about this is the way PL feels at the moment if he was offered the job he would probably take it. But I don't think it will happen as their are other managers ahead of him in the list. Scottish prem football, Cup competitions and European competition V league 1 and no cup runs, umm I wonder which seems the more inviting.
As for compensation ME would probably get the negotiations wrong on that one as well, probably a clause in PL contract that he can go for the right club.

Lambert has proved recently why he was, and never will be, right for our Club - he is doing the same as he did at Norwich in alienating the majority of Fans.
With the events of the past couple of weeks, I am for the first time wondering if Marcus Evans is right for the IPSWICH TOWN FC that we all love either.
Both have shown contempt for fans recently, in such a way that doesn’t fit the Town way - this is inexcusable, and people will react in ways that will not benefit Owner or Manager.
Quite honestly, I think they’ve both ‘lost it’.
Some fans, as I’ve stated before, will continue to be content ‘as long as a ball is kicked at Portman Road’ - but many of us expect nothing more or less than success for our Club - and that means WINNING and moving FORWARD.
It can be justifiably argued that for the past decade, we have done the complete reverse - hence effectively Third Division Football, and never a Cup in sight - least of all a Cup run.
Good Luck Celtic - I somehow think they will have far better options.
Talking about ‘being at massive Clubs’ every other quote - will not wash with them I suspect.

Brandonsblues, whatever anyone's opinion of Evans his business acumen is surely unquestionable.
|Carberry added 21:37 - Dec 7|
This must be a joke. From division 3 to Celtic is laughable surely. He'd see protests outside Celtic Park at first hand.
|blue86 added 21:37 - Dec 7|
Saxonblue 74, ahhh I feel so at ease now! I'm glad we have Evan's as our owner as he is a fantastic business man..... that's what I sometimes cant get my head round? He is this fantastic business man but I'm sure when he took over our debt was about 35 million ish, it's now over triple that I think. So what does he get out of it? Not a supporter of town, havent progessed in his time here, in fact we have gone backwards. So what is the attraction? Not even really mr popular is he? Dont get it.

Blueboy1981, hit the nail on the head 👏
|ArnieM added 21:50 - Dec 7|
....however I would add to my post above. IF there is an ounce of truth in this link , and Lambert FEELS he is in with even half a chance of getting the Celtic job, he WILL walk from the Town. He’s got history of doing just that, Colchester, Scum.... Villa?....Stoke?
Would I be upset if he added us to that list? .........Not a bit of it.
|Saxonblue74 added 21:52 - Dec 7|
Blue86, very few football clubs return a profit outside the premier league. We've failed to get there under Evans tenure. That is most likely due to questionable football decisions, not business related. Just an opinion which I managed to get across without being patronising I hope?
|itfcjoe added 21:56 - Dec 7|
This would be the greatest ever Christmas Miracle
|blue86 added 22:11 - Dec 7|
Saxonblue74, yes very few do return a profit but the way our debt has grown is scary. I get you were making a point about him as a business man, bit in the nicest possible way I dont care to a certain extent about his business acumen, what I do care about is our club. And the facts are in his time here the debt has tripled and we are now in league 1. He even stated he had turned offers down in the past for us from potential buyers, but turned them down as they weren't right for the club? Hasn't been 13 years of success has it, dont think anyone can say it has really can they, apart from we still exist that's it.
