Rangers assistant David Weir believes David Moyes would take Celtic job

David Moyes

The Rangers assistant played under Moyes at Everton.

This week saw Ronny Deila and Celtic announce that the Norwegian would not be head cpoach at Celtic anymore from the summer.

The Bhoys coach is stepping down for the good of the team after struggling to win over fans with the team’s performances – especially in Europe – during his tenure at Parkhead.

Now the attention is turning to who might replace him.

One big favourite to get the job is David Moyes.

One man already based in Glasgow who knows him well is the assistant at Celtic’s arch-rivals Rangers. David Weir worked under Moyes as an Everton player and the Rangers assistant spoke to talkSPORT today (22/04/16) and suggested that Moyes would want the job:

“I think that if there is a job in Scotland that he’d take I am sure it would be that one. Because he has obviously got a history there and an affinity there.

“I’m sure there will be lots of names in the frame for that job because it is a fantastic job and it’s got an opportunity to play in Europe which doesn’t always come in England.

“The Champions League and winning trophies, if Celtic are doing well, is a great platform for any manager. So I am sure David Moyes would seriously think about it.

“But I’m sure there’s a lot of clubs available in the summer that might suit him as well.”

The former Everton, Manchester United and Real Sociedad manager is a former Celtic player and a Glasgow native – so would be a welcome appointment among many.

Moyes has already made it clear he would be interested in the job but with the Aston Villa vacancy and a potential opening at former club Everton he is bound to have a list of options come the summer.
