Tony Adams puts himself in contention for the Celtic job
Unemployed manager tries to talk his way into the Parkhead post
You’d think someone who relegated Wycombe and was ready to do the same with Portsmouth would struggle to land a League Two job* but Tony Adams frightened Celtic fans today by claiming he could succeed Gordon Strachan.
The legendary defender said he had been recommended by popular former boss Wim Jansen, who he worked with at Feyenoord. Despite not even applying, he seemed to expect to be considered ahead of candidates like Roberto Martinez, whose Swansea side knocked him out of the FA Cup.
In an attempt to explain why the job appealed to him, Adams didn’t offer the most convincing argument, instead sounding like a man who is desperate to find a job where failure is practically impossible:
“It works for me and Celtic is an unbelievable club, you have a 50% chance of winning something up there.”
Disappointingly for Adams, a Celtic source has dismissed the speculation as “complete garbage”.
*Then again, Terry Butcher and Bryan Robson keep finding new suitors.
