Report explains why David Moyes is stalling over replacing Deila as Celtic boss

David Moyes

Celtic are reportedly keen to make David Moyes their new manager this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Celtic want to appoint David Moyes as their new manager this summer - but he is waiting for offers from the Premier League.

The Bhoys are under increasing pressure having struggled in a number of competitions this season, with early exits from the Champions League and Europa League putting Ronny Deila's position as manage under threat.

Celtic also crashed out of the Scottish League Cup after a defeat to Ross County, whilst their Scottish Premiership title defence has been faltering of late.

Norwegian Deila is expected to lose his job before the start of next season, and the Bhoys should be in the market for a new manager to kickstart the club again, having struggled under Deila's leadership.

Now, the Daily Mail report that Celtic are keen to appoint David Moyes as their new manager this summer, and have indicated to the Scot that they want to bring him back to the club.

Moyes, who lost his job with Real Sociedad in November, played 24 games for Celtic as a defender, and was born in Glasgow too, making a possible return appealing.

However, the report states that Celtic are waiting for a clear decision from Moyes, as he is so far keeping his options open in the hope of receiving offers from a Premier League club.

The former Manchester United boss is bound to be in demand this summer, and Celtic will be hoping that his history with the club will give them an advantage over English clubs.
