Celtic are seemingly on the hunt for a new manager. Brendan Rodgers left for Leicester City earlier this season and Neil Lennon has been doing a job since. However, on a permanent role, it could go elsewhere.
One name that has been mentioned is that of former West Ham and Croatia boss Slaven Bilic.
As reported by the BBC, the 50-year-old is open to the possibility of becoming the next Bhoys boss. He is currently unemployed after a disappointing spell at Al-Ittihad in Saudi Arabia and would be an eye-catching appointment from the Bhoys.
But the news he would be interested in the role should not come as a surprise. Bilic has spoken of his admiration for Celtic in the past.
As reported by the Daily Record, he has stated he ‘would walk to Glasgow’ to discuss a job at either Old Firm club.
“To manage one of the Old Firm would be a big honour and a big responsibility. It means a lot to so many people there.
“It’s not just football, it’s everything. It’s your life. If I had an invite from Celtic or Rangers to go for an interview I would walk to Glasgow.”
Bilic would be a big name arrival at Celtic. In the past, he has managed at big clubs such as West Ham, Besiktas, and Lokomotiv Moscow, with varying degrees of success.
None of those clubs, with all due respect, are as big as Celtic. Bilic would undoubtedly be excited about the chance to take up the Parkhead challenge and add Celtic to his impressive resume.
Considering his disappointing last managerial outing, Celtic fans may be doubtful. However, hearing how much he would relish the opportunity is something Hoops fans can appreciate.
