Sutton says he’d consider this former Celtic midfielder and Moyes for managerial job

Ronny Deila

Chris Sutton backs David Moyes and Roy Keane for the Celtic managerial job.

Chris Sutton has written in The Daily Record that former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes would be a good managerial appointment for Celtic.

Deila has been in charge of Celtic since 2014, and has won the Scottish Premiership and the Scottish League Cup.

However, the Bhoys’ failure to progress in Europe combined with the danger of losing the league title this season has put the Norwegian under pressure.

Former Celtic striker Sutton believes that Moyes is a good managerial candidate to replace Deila at Celtic Park.

The former Chelsea striker also believes that ex-Manchester United and Celtic midfielder Roy Keane could do the job.

“They need structure and a purpose,” Sutton wrote in The Daily Record. “They’ve tried the left field, young manager appointment and it hasn’t worked.

“Now is the time to go for experience and for the powerbrokers to be brave enough to let a new man be hands-on to make a difference. As I said, Moyes could be that man. Roy Keane is another I’d consider.”

Moyes started his professional club football career at Celtic and is a very good manager.

The Scotsman failed to achieve success at Manchester United and Real Sociedad, but his work at Everton cannot be ignored.

The former Preston North End boss helped the Toffees establish themselves as a Premier League club.

Moyes would be a good candidate to replace Deila, but Keane? The former Republic of Ireland international is one of the greatest midfielders in Premier League history, but as a manager he has not done great things.
