Report: Celtic considering summer move for Michael O'Neill; Moyes also mentioned

Celtic

Celtic are ready to replace Ronny Deila at the end of this season.

Celtic are lining up Michael O’Neill as the replacement for Ronny Deila this summer, the Belfast Telegraph reports.

Deila has been coming under increasing pressure this season due to the consistently poor performances Celtic have been putting in.

They are failing on the European stage - in both Champions League and Europa League - and have been knocked out of the Scottish League Cup.

They are still on course to win the Scottish Premiership, but they are not easing to it as many expected, and one trophy a season is not good enough for the Bhoys.

Delia’s future is set to be assessed at the end of the season, and the report indicates that Michael O’Neill is being considered by the Bhoys.

The manager has worked wonders with Northern Ireland recently, leading them to Euro 2016, and he could be up for taking a club role at the end of the Euros.

David Moyes and Roy Keane are also named in the report as being considered by Celtic, but O’Neill is known to have many admirers amongst the Parkhead hierarchy.

It is not indicated in the report whether Celtic have yet made a formal approach for O’Neill.
