David Moyes gives interesting response when asked about becoming Celtic manager

David Moyes Interview - 23/02/2014

David Moyes has opened the door to a move to Celtic.

As quoted by The Scottish Herald, David Moyes has told PLZ Soccer that he would 'never say never' to becoming Celtic manager.

Moyes, 52, has seen his managerial career nosedive since leaving Everton in 2013. The former Preston boss was appointed as Sir Alex Ferguson's replacement at Manchester United, but lasted less than a year at Old Trafford before being sacked.

The Scot then decided to try his hand at Spanish football with Real Sociedad in November 2014, and lasted one day short of a year before again losing his job, with Moyes now in desperate need of a successful spell to rebuild his reputation.

One job that Moyes has been linked with recently is Celtic. Manager Ronny Deila is struggling to keep his job after crashing out of the Champions League, Europa League and Scottish League Cup earlier this season, and recent reports have suggested that Moyes could be a top target.

The Daily Mail reported earlier this month that Celtic are waiting for an answer from Moyes - who made 24 appearances for the Bhoys as a player - over whether he will return to his former club this summer and replace Deila in the Celtic Park dugout.

Now, Moyes has been asked by PLZ Soccer, as quoted by The Scottish Herald, whether he would be open to taking the Celtic job in the future, and he gave an interesting response; he would never rule out a return to the Bhoys, as he wants a return to the Champions League - something Celtic will only achieve if they fend off title challengers Aberdeen this season.

"Who knows? I would never say never," said Moyes. "I have ambitions to win things and to be at a club that won and would be in the Champions League," he added.

It's now up to Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell to not only remove Deila this summer, but then make a move for Moyes, and see if he really would accept a return to Celtic Park this summer.
