Alan Brazil wants David Moyes to replace Ronny Deila; also prefers Neil Lennon

David Moyes

Rangers fan David Moyes could be in line to take charge of Celtic.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Alan Brazil has admitted that he wants to see Ronny Deila replaced at Celtic manager, although he doubts David Moyes would return to Parkhead having supported Rangers as a child.

He said: “We are going to walk the Premiership - of course we are! I don’t know Ronny, but going on what I’ve seen so far, you just look at attendances and something has got to give at Parkhead. I would love David [Moyes] to take it, but, although he played for Celtic, he was a Rangers fan as a kid. I think he is looking for something big in the Premier League. I think Neil Lennon would have a chance back in the Celtic job. I would be more comfortable with Neil as Celtic manager than Ronny.”

Moyes started his playing career with Celtic, but he was a Rangers fan growing up, and Brazil doubts whether he would head back to Pearkhead as a manager.

Not only due to his fandom, but also because Moyes will be looking for a bigger, and more challenging, job in the English Premier League.

If Moyes could not be tempted back to Parkhead, Brazil would like to see Neil Lennon back with the Bhoys, with the current Bolton boss in charge of a club who are on the brink of demise.

Lennon won three Premier League titles with Celtic when in charge, as well as two Scottish Cups, and his 228 games brought an exceptional 69/7% win ratio.

Lennon is struggling with Bolton due to the situation the club are currently in, and it would be hard to imagine that tempting him back to Parkhead would be a hard task if Deila is to lose his job.

The Norwegian boss will lead the Bhoys to another league title, but only due to the lack of competition in Scottish football, and he has yet to impress in European football. It is hard to see his future with Celtic for much longer, and a new manager could be heading to Parkhead before too long.
