Former West Ham United and Rangers ace Dale Gordon believes David Moyes is a perfect fit to replace Brendan Rodgers at Celtic.
The Bhoys are currently being guided through to the end of the season by interim boss Neil Lennon, after Rodgers jumped ship to join Leicester City in February.
Lennon is tasked with delivering the Treble Treble, and if he does he will surely have to be at least considered for the manager’s role on a permanent basis.
But in the eyes of Gordon – who represented Rangers from 1991-1993 – former Bhoy Moyes can resurrect his career at Parkhead.
He said, as quoted by The Evening Times: “I think David Moyes would be a good fit for Celtic. There are question marks about Neil Lennon. Going back to your old club doesn’t always work. Of course, it was a no-brainer for him to take the temporary role but will it work long term?
“I thought he did a good job at West Ham last season and was unfortunate that he didn’t get the job on a permanent basis. His problem is that he is not a trendy manager – but you don’t become a bad manager overnight. I just think he needs this now – a chance to kick-start his career again.”
Moyes, who managed the Hammers, Manchester United and Everton in England, as well as Real Sociedad, recently admitted his interest in the Celtic job (BBC 5 Live, quoted by The Daily Record) and remains an outside possibility, but the Bhoys should steer clear.
He may be available but Celtic need someone who can take the club to the next level.
Tactically Moyes has been criticised since his Manchester United days, and the Celtic crowd are used to vibrant attacking football, which is not necessarily something associated with Moyes.
