CELTIC COULD DO WORSE THAN OFFER JIM CELTIC JOB, SAYS BONNER

first_imgDonegal GAA legend Declan Bonner believes Celtic could do worse than offer Jim McGuinness the manager’s job if it becomes vacant again.Jim McGuinness after he was appointed by former Celtic boss Neil Lennon.It’s the last thing Donegal fans and McGuinness will want to hear as they prepare for the All-Ireland battle of their lives against Kerry on September 21st.But former All-Ireland winner and minor boss Bonner says Celtic could do a lot worse. He has even discussed the situation with the Glenties man about a possible move to the big job at Parkhead.“They (Celtic) could do a lot worse. I was just chatting to him (Jim) about it. I asked him did he take his A coaching badge.“I don’t think he has. I was surprised saying it was the first thing he could be getting done at this stage. I would be getting them done if I was over there.“This guy Ronnie Delia came in from wherever – stranger things have happened,” said Bonner. But Bonner admits that he has nothing but admiration for McGuinness in not leaving Donegal and hopes he will lead them to another All-Ireland title before any thoughts of his future.“I felt after last year that he possibly could have walked away, himself and a number of players could have walked.“The way they came back, it’s all very well winning one All-Ireland and disappearing after that but he has come back, and won an Ulster title this year,” he added. CELTIC COULD DO WORSE THAN OFFER JIM CELTIC JOB, SAYS BONNER was last modified: September 2nd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:all-irelandCelticDeclan BonnerdonegalJim McGuinnessKerrylast_img read more
