According to Open Goal, former Man United manager David Moyes said that he would be open to managing Celtic in the future.
The manager, currently out of a job, grew up in Glasgow, and played for the club in his early career.
In the interview, Moyes said: “It’s my home and it’s where I come from and I’d like to come back and do it sometime, but, I’ve got to say, while the Premier League is so strong I think that would remain my interest.”
With increasing speculation over current Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers’ future, Moyes could be the successor to the Northern Irishman at Celtic Park.
However, Celtic CEO Peter Lawwell should avoid this potential opportunity at all costs, regardless of whether Rodgers stays or goes. The Scottish manager’s record has been fairly poor ever since he left Everton in 2013, and there’s no guarantee that he would bring success to The Bhoys.
While there isn’t much shame in failing at Man United, as every manager since Alex Ferguson has, his spells at Real Sociedad in Spain, Sunderland and West Ham have damaged his reputation.
He will obviously hope that a move back to Glasgow will revive his career, which is frankly petering out. Fans will also hope that he brings the skill and expertise that he showed at Goodison Park, where he became renowned as one of the most respected managers in England.
However, he has insisted that he would like to remain in the Premier League, which may be a relief to any sceptical fans.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
