West Brom allow Mowbray to negotiate with Celtic

West Brom have allowed Tony Mowbray to hold talks with Celtic in regards to their vacant managerial role.

The Baggies have expressed that they do not want to part company with Mowbray but he has insisted he would like to talk with the Scottish club.

"We do not want to lose Tony because he has been an integral part of a long-term project at the club which the vast majority of our fans have bought into," said West Brom chairman Jeremy Pearce.

"But Tony expressed his desire to talk to Celtic and now that the compensation figure in his contract has been met to our satisfaction that process can take place.

"If Tony decides to join Celtic he would leave with our good wishes and we would then immediately put into action the task of appointing a new manager who can take the club forward."
