I haven't read the rest of your post but I agree.  The Bunnet was a remarkable wee man.

Rafa Benitez to be appointed new Celtic manager after quitting job in China

Benitez would be going head-to-head with his former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard for supremacy in Glasgow

He far from made a hash of things. Fergus McCann was clear from the onset as to what he would do at Celtic and in what sort of timeline and he delivered it to the letter and he was far from revered at the time because of his refusal to put stopping Rangers at the top of his priority list or would he cave into the wage demands of the likes of PvH and Di Canio. 

Yet he got us debt free, built an amazing stadium and set us on a path that would see us become successful again and without it being his goal stopped Rangers winning the 10. 

There is a much greater appreciation of him now because of Rangers collapse, it now all made sense. He stuck to his plan and got out exactly when he said he would 

 

The bunnet was far from popular but he did exactly what he said he was going to do & laid a lot of foundations for further success, that said I will never forgive him for binning Tommy Burns even though that worked out well for us.

Celtics wildcard is Desmond. If he sticks €10m into Celtic and uses it for a manager, there’s no reason Celtic couldn’t hire Benitez.

However a) as I alluded to earlier, Celtics flotation on the stock market makes this difficult, and b) he’s never shown much of an inclination to do this IIRC. Can’t remember the last time he did.

If Griffiths truly wanted to help Lennon this season the best thing he could have done was forget where the fridge is!

I'm maybe missing something but why would he need to chuck in €10m for a manager?

Where does the money come from otherwise?

I'm asking why they need €10m?

Benitez was pulling in £6m a year at Newcastle. 

You’d probably have to pay him a wee bit more to make the move to Scotland instead of stay in England, plus you’d need to pay his backroom staff.

Its impossible to know what the required figure would be obviously, but €10m is a decent stab at it I think. 

Point is, this isn’t happening unless Desmond decides to fund it.

Griffiths will be shitting his breeks as he knows no other manager will let him away with the stuff that Lennon does.

He’d be better using his time constructively and losing 3 stone and getting fit.

The lad has basically said it is going to take 10m euros to hire Benitez with absolutely no knowledge of the situation. He's literally picked a sum out of the air.

He then went on to give his reasoning for that figure using his last contract in British football as reference so it has a bit more basis than just being plucked out of thin air.

It was quite clearly a bit of guesswork but rather than say whether you thought it was reasonable/unreasonable you’ve went in at the deep end.
