It is no secret that this season is not going exactly to plan for Brendan Rodgers.
A transfer window undermined by indecision and the last-gasp sale of Moussa Dembele ran alongside an early Champions League exit; which was the precursor to a so far underwhelming title defence.
All is not well, with Rodgers under mounting pressure to turn results around. Against that backdrop, David Moyes has thrown his hat in the ring to be Celtic’s new manager.
He did also say he would manage Rangers as well – which is unlikely to endear him to either fanbase – but he has made it clear he would relish either of Scotland’s top jobs.
Moyes was reportedly Celtic’s top target to replace Ronny Delia, which may further concern Rodgers.
However, Celtic already have a superior manager. Moyes is a pragmatist, who could not have built a Bhoys side as attractive as the one Rodgers has constructed.
After leaving Everton, it has become clear that Moyes is only really capable of playing in a defensive style; that won’t really wash for a club that is expected to win the vast majority of its games.
Celtic should ignore Moyes’ plea, they already have a better option in Rodgers.
