Many Leeds United fans have ripped into Alan Brazil after he claimed he wants Marcelo Bielsa to take the Celtic job.
Neil Lennon resigned as manager of the Scottish side on Wednesday and a host of managers have been tipped to replace him.
Bielsa wasn’t one of them until Thursday morning when Brazil claimed that he would love El Loco to make the move north of the border.
“You know who I would love to come in? It’s not going to happen, for me, it’s the Celtic way… Bielsa.” Brazil told TalkSPORT.
“I’d love someone like him to come up there and get them buzzing, playing free-flowing football, chasing every ball and harrying, but that’s not going to happen.”
We’re sure Celtic fans would love to see Bielsa take over at Parkhead but why on earth would he leave the Premier League to manage in the Scottish Premiership?
Bielsa dropped some pretty big hints over his future this week and we all hope he will sign that new contract at the end of the season.
Many Whites fans found Brazil’s comments hilarious though many ripped into the former Scotland striker for suggesting something so outrageous.
One branded him a ‘muppet’ while others blasted the comments Brazil has made about Bielsa in the past after he claimed to no know who Bielsa was when Leeds appointed him.
Here is how Leeds United fans reacted to Brazil’s bizarre suggestion.
This Bouncy Castle said last week that he thought leeds and bielsa were struggling and needed to change there way and now this from him 🤔🤔🤷♂️ https://t.co/QhnCrqNFLX

I’ve now heard @alanbrazil and @talkSPORTDrive mention Bielsa for the Celtic job 🤣 to be fair Brazil did say it’s never gonna happen, that’s correct. Leeds in the premier league is a bigger and better job than Celtic. Fact

He could probably manage Ross County and win that league. 😂😂
