David Moyes has stated that he would be ‘interested’ in becoming the next permanent manager of Celtic.
The Scot has been out of work since leaving West Ham United last summer after keeping them in the Premier League.
Celtic, of course, had been rocked by the departure of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City last month, with Neil Lennon returning to the club to steady the ship.
Lennon has been going well in his interim role so far having overseen three victories and one draw.
Performances have not been sparkling, but Lennon is simply tasked with seeing the job through and delivering the Treble Treble.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live (quoted by The Scottish Sun), Moyes admitted: “I would always be interested.
“But I have got to say Lenny’s done a brilliant job.
“He’s been there before and I think the job he is doing at the moment would warrant him being the Celtic manager. I really do, he’s doing a good job.”
Certainly if Lennon does win the Treble Treble then the board may find it hard to give the job to anybody but him.
Celtic fans on Moyes
Some Celtic fans were not keen on the idea of the former Bhoys defender coming in to manage the club, and took to Twitter to air their views:

Celtic isn’t a club you manage to help ‘rebuild your reputation’’. Automatic no.
