Most Celtic Fans Definitely Don’t Want Nigel Pearson as Their Next Boss

There’s a lot of opposition to Nigel Pearson being made the next manager of Celtic.

The former Leicester City manager has emerged as a candidate to replace Ronny Deila over the last 24 hours – with reporting that he’s being considered by the Hoops hierarchy.

Pearson has been without a club since leaving the King Power Stadium last summer, but the divisive personality has been mentioned for a host of jobs while out of work.

He joins a long list of names who have been linked, including former Celtic boss Neil Lennon, David Moyes, Brendan Rodgers and Steve Clarke.

But Deila is still in the job and won’t walk away until the season finishes in May so you’d expect the club to make an announcement after his exit.

Still, when new names are brought into the discussion, fans are quick to react about whether or not they’d want a certain man in charge of the club.

And the reaction to Pearson isn’t in his favour.

Most Celtic supporters on Twitter appear against the Englishman becoming their next manager once Deila departs:

Celtic fans – would you welcome Pearson?
