Leeds United head coach Steve Evans says that he would turn down the chance to manage Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

Steve Evans has told The Sun that he would turn down Celtic to remain at Leeds United.

Evans was appointed the Leeds head coach last month following the dismissal of Uwe Rosler.

The former Rotherham United manager seems to be very happy at Elland Road, and has said that he would reject the chance to manage Scottish Premiership giants Celtic now if they made him an offer.

“It’s (managing Leeds) like the feeling you get when you take your first girlfriend out on a first date or when you get married,” Evans told The Sun.

“How special is it? Well, I’m a boy from a Glasgow estate and Celtic have been my passion since I was a kid. I dreamed of playing for them and of managing them.

“But if they offered me their manager’s job now I’d say, ‘thanks, but no thanks’, and stay at Leeds.”

Evans has done relatively well at Leeds so far, winning two games, drawing two and losing one.

The West Yorkshire outfit are 15th in the Championship table at the moment with 19 points from 16 matches.

The Whites will take on Rotherham at Elland Road in the league on Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Celtic remain on course to winning the Scottish Premiership title yet again.

Ronny Deila’s side are at the top of the league table at the moment with 35 points from 14 matches, six points clear of second-place Hearts.
