Following a turbulent season by the Glasgow side, which has also led to the resignation of manager Neil Lennon and losing the Scottish title to rivals [Rangers], Celtic must enormously prepare for the task ahead next season by at first getting a manager who will spearhead the activities and also help achieve the set goals and objectives for the coming season.
However, there have been strong links with ex Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe about taking over the vacant managerial position at the club but whoever Celtic hierarchies chooses to take over must turn things around and get the club back on track.
