Blaz Sliskovic claims his agent has offered his services to Celtic.

Former Bosnia and Herzegovina boss Blaz Sliskovic has told Sport Avaz that his agent has offered him to Celtic, as the Bhoys search for a new manager.

Celtic confirmed last month that manager Ronny Deila will be leaving the club this summer after two years in charge, as despite winning the title again this season, the Norwegian has been unconvincing, and crucially failed on numerous occasions in Europe.

Fans are now talking about who would replace Deila, and whilst a host of former Celtic players have been mentioned like Roy Keane, David Moyes, Paul Lambert and Neil Lennon, the Bhoys will be receiving applications from a host of managers both well-known and obscure.

One to add into the latter category is Blaz Sliskovic. The 56-year-old will be an unknown to most fans in Scotland, but his agent appears to have thrown his hat into the ring for Celtic.

Sliskovic is a former international boss with his native Bosnia, whilst he has also managed Hajduk Split and FK Tirana, with more recent spells at Unirea Alba Iulia, Siroki Brijeg, Al-Ansar and Qingdao Jonoon.

Out of work since 2014, Sliskovic may be looking to get back into management - and he has now revealed to Sport Avaz that his agent has offered him to Celtic as they search for a new boss - but the little-known manager accepts that he is up against big-name European coaches, and isn't getting his hopes up about a possible move to Glasgow as Deila's replacement this summer.

"I got a call from my agent Marc Antoine Kiple," said Sliskovic. "He told me that he offered my services to Celtic. Being a coach of such a club is a huge thing, and my competitors are large European coaches. To be honest, I do not expect too much," he added.
