West Brom boss Mowbray must be convinced about Celtic move

West Brom boss Tony Mowbray is on the brink of being named new manager of Celtic. The Scottish Sun says the Baggies are already identifying potential replacements when Mowbray ends his three-year spell at the Hawthorns.

He would bring with him No 2 Mark Venus and former Celtic idol Peter Grant. That would leave current Hoops first-team coach Neil Lennon wondering where he'd fit in.

Mowbray's favoured passing game and Celtic connection - allied to Grant's presence - makes him particularly appealing to Parkhead major shareholder Dermot Desmond, who is ready to sanction a £850,000 compensation package for the Baggies.

He's not given Desmond or Celts chief executive Peter Lawwell negative feedback about the job.

But deep down Mowbray has worries about the impact the intense Old Firm scrutiny would have on his family life, especially with his wife expecting their third child.

That could yet see ex-Hibs boss Mowbray walk away from the tantalising opportunity of heading back to Paradise.
