Celtic must avoid appointing David Moyes as Brendan Rodgers’ long-term successor this summer

David Moyes is interested in the Celtic job.

Celtic were forced into a mid-season managerial change yesterday after Brendan Rodgers decided to join Leicester City.

The Bhoys quickly moved to bring in former manager Neil Lennon on a deal until the end of the season but the long-term plan is unclear.

Whether Celtic plan to appoint Lennon permanently remains to be seen but they will surely be considering other options too.

According to The Daily Mail, Celtic could make a new approach for David Moyes, who has been a target in the past.

 

Moyes is interested in taking the job in Glasgow, having been out of a job since the end of last season.

But this is a move that Celtic must avoid: Moyes has not done an exceptional job since leaving Everton in 2013.

After failures with Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland, Moyes was handed the West Ham job midway through last season.

Although his time at West Ham was considered a success by some, it is clear that he underachieved in East London.

Given the calibre of his squad and the time and money he was given to turn things around, it was unacceptable that he left his post with the second worst record in the club’s history.

Unsurprisingly, after protests from many West Ham fans, Moyes’ contract was not extended and he remains out of work.

Moyes would be an underwhelming appointment and his managerial approach is outdated: Celtic must look elsewhere.
