Trevor Sinclair says he'd love West Ham boss at Celtic; backs 51-year-old as realistic appointment

Trevor Sinclair has told TalkSPORT that although it’s probably unrealistic, he’d love to see David Moyes leave West Ham to manage Celtic.

The Scottish boss had led the Hammers to fourth place in the Premier League and is doing a wonderful job in East London.

Celtic are on the lookout for a new manager after parting ways with Neil Lennon earlier this week.

Sinclair believes the club needs a man like Moyes to go in and revive the club from bottom to top.

He told TalkSPORT: “West Ham fans won’t appreciate this but I’d love David Moyes to go in there.

“I think it needs that kind of man to go in there to start afresh and rebuild the whole club from the bottom to the top.

“A manager like Moyes is needed. He’s probably not going to leave but that’s who they need.”

Sinclair’s notion of Moyes going to Celtic isn’t likely to happen but he did offer a more realistic suggestion too.

The former England winger said that ex-Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill should be in the sights of Celtic too.

Currently bossing Stoke City, Sinclair thinks he would do a good job.

He continued: “I think someone like Michael O’Neill. He’s proved that he can do it at an international level, he’s gone to Stoke and done a very good job.

“Again he’s a man’s manager, no-nonsense and I think he’s a man capable of building that club and getting them competitive again”

TBR View: Celtic have to get next appointment right

Whoever is tasked with reviving the fortunes of Celtic is going to be in for a job and a half.

Rangers are firing on all cylinders under Steven Gerrard and look very much like a club destined to enjoy years of success.

His stock is rising though and there’s no reason why Celtic shouldn’t shoot for the stars with their search for Lennon’s successor.

Michael O’Neill is an interesting shout.

Although he has revived Stoke’s fortunes somewhat, some supporters do still feel that the is underachieving with the squad he has at his disposal.

The 51-year-old is perhaps not a big enough name to delight the supporters and it’ll be interesting to see who the club does go for.
