Celtic made contact with former Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre amid Eddie Howe’s bombshell, Football insider has learned.

The prospect of Howe, 43, of accepting their ‘wonderful’ offer presented last week has diminished considerably as it appeared on Wednesday night via Sky Sports, he does not plan to return to management until the summer at most. early.

Football insider had already revealed early Wednesday (April 7) that Favre was also on the Hoops shortlist and had been lined up as an alternative candidate.

A Celtic source said contacts had been made with the Swiss, 63, about him potentially taking the job.

The Scottish champions are not convinced Howe is ready to face the pressure and scrutiny of running a club where every game is expected to be won.

They had reached a verbal deal with the former Bournemouth boss to become their next manager after talks in London.

But he has refrained from putting pen to paper and confirmation from his representative that he will not take the job at this point is a blow to the Glasgow giants.

Howe left the door open, but Celtic are evaluating potential alternatives.

Favre, 63, is considered a real candidate with an impressive CV.

He was sacked by Dortmund in December but has a good record after leading top teams in Germany, France and his native Switzerland.

Among his managerial distinctions are two league titles in Switzerland with Zurich.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel left German giant Dortmund with a Bundesliga winning percentage of 61.76 (beaten only by Lucien Favre’s 63.29. among Dortmund managers with at least 10 games in charge).

Favre spent two and a half years at Dortmund, where he had an impressive 62% winning record, as well as four years at Borussia Mochengladbach and two years at French training Nice.

At Celtic, huge rebuilding is needed to overhaul Rangers following a calamitous campaign in which their 10 straight hopes were left in ruins.

In other news, a Celtic colossus could be heading to the Premier League club with a discounted £ 5million contract.
