Alan Stubbs responds when asked whether David Moyes would want the Celtic job

Everton

David Moyes is the bookies' favourite to take over at Celtic when Ronny Deila departs.

Alan Stubbs has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 21st April, that he believes David Moyes will want a Premier League job ahead of the Celtic managerial position.

Moyes is currently the odds-on favourite to take over at Celtic, when Ronny Deila leaves the club at the end of the season.

However, Stubbs, who worked with Moyes at Everton, believes that the 52-year-old may look towards working in England before considering a move to Parkhead.

“I think being honest, he’ll look for a job in the Premier League first,” Stubbs said.

“I know speaking to him in the past he would like to manage Celtic one day. Whether that day is the end of the season, it’ll depend on what offers he gets - but I think he’ll have quite a few offers come the summer time.”

Moyes has been linked with Celtic for a considerable amount of time, but the rumours became more rife after the Glasgow club confirmed that Deila will be leaving at the end of the season yesterday.

Moyes remained coy over the links, when asked whether he would take the job by Sky Sports last night.

"Celtic's a brilliant football club, and they have an unbelievable fanbase - one of the biggest in the world," he said. "I'm going to wait and make my decision in the summertime. There are lots of jobs that would interest me.”

Moyes has been out of work since 2015, when he departed Real Sociedad after failing to guide the La Liga side up the table.

Moyes has also been linked with the manager’s jobs at Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Everton in recent times.
