Report: Malky Mackay interviews for Celtic job, Moyes and Rodgers holding talks this week

Celtic

Malky Mackay has reportedly been interview for the Celtic job.

According to today's Scottish Daily Mail, Celtic have interviewed Malky Mackay over replacing current manager Ronny Deila.

The Bhoys announced last month that manager Deila will leave the club this summer after an underwhelming season, and a host of names have been linked with the role already.

Former Celtic midfielders Roy Keane and Paul Lambert have both been heavily linked with the job, whilst fans have also talked about a return for former manager Neil Lennon following his departure from Bolton Wanderers.

Now though, the Scottish Daily Mail report that Celtic have already interviewed their former defender Malky Mackay about taking the job this summer.

Mackay, 44, played for Celtic between 1993 and 1998 before embarking on a career in England with Norwich City, West Ham United and Watford.

Now a manager, Mackay guided Cardiff City to promotion but was controversially sacked by Vincent Tan, and lasted just five months as Wigan Athletic manager.

The Scot knows Celtic inside out, but his patchy managerial career and controversial text messages, as reported by BBC Sport, would surely be a huge concern.

Additionally, the report claims that whilst Celtic have already interviewed Mackay, they will also hold talks with David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers later this week.

Either manager - who have recently taken charge of Manchester United and Liverpool respectively - would be a huge coup for Celtic, and surely more appealing to fans than Mackay as they look to find a suitable replacement for Deila ahead of the summer transfer window.
