Speaking to talkSPORT, Alan Brazil has suggested that Celtic should move to hire David Moyes as a replacement for Ronny Deila, now that the former defender has been sacked from his job with Real Sociedad.
Brazil said: “Celtic have struggled badly in Europe, they’ll win the league again, but in Europe they’ve been massively disappointing. He’s an ex-Celtic player. But Celtic don’t pay big money, and David will be used to getting big money, but then again, if he wants a change, then maybe.”
Brazil, who started his career with Celtic Boys Club, is an avid fan of the club, and has become disillusioned with their recent history since Deila took charge.
They are undoubtedly going to win the Scottish Premiership again, as they have done for the last four years, but they have failed to make it into the Champions League for the past two seasons, and have then struggled in the Europa League.
They have no real direction when taking to Europe, but their success depends upon doing well in the Champions League, and Deila has yet to deliver.
Now that Moyes, and ex-Celtic player, is out of a job, Brazil has suggested that the Bhoys should move to hire him, as he has proven success.
He did a great job with Everton, and although he struggled with Manchester United and Sociedad, it is hard to deny that he is a better manager than Deila. There have been no concrete reports linking Moyes with a move to Parkhead, but the Daily Record has claimed he is the favourite to take the hot seat next at the club.
Brazil has suggested the only potential struggle to get Moyes would be financial, but even then the manager may look to lower his demands so as to get back into a job which fits his blueprint.
Moyes needs to ensure he makes the correct choice with his next job if he is to not ruin his reputation, and Celtic could be the perfect club to give him the platform to build upon if they look to replace Deila.
