Some Celtic fans are calling for Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa to join the Hoops.

The Argentine failed to guide United to the Championship play-offs last night, prompting the call.

The former Marseille gaffer hasn’t left the club yet, but failure to get promotion could see him leave.

However, the manager told the BBC he will be listening to offers.

Marcelo Bielsa the type Celtic needs

The South American has had success with massive clubs and brought through many top players.

His passionate behaviour and determined methods to win makes him highly popular with fans of his clubs.

This stems from his native Argentina where football is seen as a way of life you live and die by.

Bielsa has the madness and aggressiveness that is needed in big derby matches which past managers have lacked.

The 63-year-old will need to get his stock in the UK back in order and getting 10-in-a-row with Celtic could do that.

Plus, his well travelled CV would excel the Hoops desperately in European football.

One man off the Celtic shortlist

Kilmarnock manager Steve Clark will have been on some Hoops fans minds to be the next boss.

However, his links to Scotland are getting closer and more realistic.

The Scottish Manager of the Year is just about over the line with the SFA ahead of next month’s fixtures.

Some fans will also breathe a sigh of relief as his Killie side are going off the rails a bit at the end of the season.

Nevertheless, there will be a queue of higher calibre managers waiting to take over at Celtic.
