Baggies fans 'disappointed' with Mowbray

Published Add your comment

West Brom supporters have criticised Tony Mowbray's decision to become the new manager at Celtic.

The Baggies chief looks set to complete his move to the Scottish giants this week and Alan Cleverley, secretary of the supporters' club, has questioned Mowbray's loyalty to the club.

He told the Daily Record: "There was a strong bond between him and the fans and if he goes to Celtic I and the supporters will be bitterly disappointed."

He added: "Most of it comes from a statement from himself at the end of the season when he asked players to show loyalty and stay for at least one more season.

"As far as I'm concerned that loyalty should count for the manager too. I was hoping Celtic would get someone else."

Meanwhile, the Baggies have arranged their only home friendly of the close season. They will face French side AS Nancy on Saturday August 1 with kick-off scheduled for 3.00.
