Some Celtic fans call for Marco Rose to replace Rodgers
Some Celtic fans on social media are clamouring for Marco Rose to be Brendan Rodgers’ replacement.
The Red Bull Salzburg boss isn’t unfamiliar to the Hoops having done the double on us in the Europa League.
The German was taken in by the Parkhead atmosphere and left covered in merchandise.
Peter Lawwell and co should be trying everything in their arsenal to get him in.
Similarities to departing Brendan Rodgers
The comparison to the outgoing manager couldn’t be any clearer and the best selection for some fans.
The Salzburg gaffer is a young aspiring manager, like Rodgers was when he came to Parkhead.
He is 42-year-old and has the tactics and player know how required to be a top European manager.
However, his downside is his predictably low knowledge on Scottish football but he’ll know all about Celtic.
The former opponent will have done his homework and far and wide defeated the Hoops last year.
However, interim boss Neil Lennon will try and have something to say about another manager taking his potential job.
Celtic fans react to Marco Rose
The Hoops faithful have taken to Twitter to discuss the possibility of the club getting Rose.

Who next for Celtic full time? My choice is Marco Rose at Salzburg, said it in January.

Has brought on implosions nearly as beautiful as when they died in 2012. For this all we can do is thank Brendan and cherish these times. We need to move on no. Lennon will hopefully be the correct man to see us through till May. Then imo we break the bank for Marco Rose…

The board have to make Marco Rose an offer he can’t refuse, he’s worked wonders with RB Salzburg on a budget similar to ours

German can work under Celtic stipulations
Playing in a similar sized league to Scotland shows that Rose knows what he’ll be working with.
He isn’t working under a world class budget with Salzburg and one will suspect the Hoops having more money in the bank, posting £38 million a couple of weeks ago.
Rose also has a record of developing players who are playing in bigger teams in tougher leagues.
He is a former manager for Salzburg’s youth from under-16, a similar path Rodgers had with Chelsea.
He has a strong win percentage which is the standard of a Celtic manager who will need to continue the club’s dominance in Scotland.
If Rose is the choice, it will be the progressive choice by the board and will have the full backing of the support.
