David Moyes might be interested in Celtic job, but he won't get it

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes might have declared himself ‘interested’ in the current managerial vacancy at Celtic. However, that doesn’t mean he is likely to get the job.

Whilst appearing on BBC Radio 5 Live (26/03/2019, 8:35pm), Moyes admitted that a move back to the club he once played for would appeal.

However, the chances of him ever being appointed Hoops boss seem slim. He flopped miserably at Manchester United, not even lasting a season at Old Trafford.

Reasonably well

He also failed at Sunderland, where he failed to stop them from being relegated. To be fair, he did reasonably well in keeping West Ham in the Premier League.

But you have to imagine that his experience at Old Trafford will be in the thoughts of the board at Celtic Park. A move to Celtic would bring about similar pressures as the move to Manchester United did.

Defeat is unthinkable

You need to win every game, and defeat is unthinkable.

If Moyes couldn’t deal with that in Manchester, the chances are he couldn’t in Glasgow.

It seems far more likely that current interim manager Neil Lennon would get the Celtic job than Moyes. He has at least managed to win trophies in his managerial career.

Moyes might get a job as a manager once again, but it seems highly unlikely that the job will be at Celtic Park.
