Report: Celtic make David Moyes their top target, he's excited about possible Bhoys return

Celtic have reportedly made David Moyes their top target to replace Ronny Deila.

According to the Daily Mail, Celtic have made David Moyes their first choice target to replace Ronny Deila as their manager this summer.

The Bhoys confirmed last month that Norwegian boss Deila, snapped up from Stromsgodset in the summer of 2014, will be leaving the club this summer after an up-and-down spell as Celtic boss.

A decent first season wasn't built on this term, and whilst Celtic won the Scottish Premiership on Sunday, Deila will be leaving after crashing out of the Scottish Cup to Old Firm rivals Rangers.

Since Celtic announced Deila's imminent departure, Bhoys fans have been wondering who will arrive to replace him - and now, reports claim that Celtic have identified their top target.

The Daily Mail report that Celtic have made David Moyes their first choice to replace Deila, with the Scot looking to get back into management having left Real Sociedad back in November.

Moyes, 53, was one of the Premier League's top managers during his time with Everton, but his struggles at Manchester United and then Sociedad have damaged his reputation.

Now keen to rebuild his career, it's believed that Moyes is enthused about the possibility of returning to Celtic, having featured for the club as a player.

However, the report also notes that Moyes could return to Everton if their manager Roberto Martinez is sacked, meaning Celtic have other targets in mind such as Roy Keane, Brendan Rodgers, Neil Lennon, Paul Lambert, Michael O’Neill and Malky Mackay.
