West Ham United boss David Moyes has been touted for the vacant Celtic manager’s job by Hammers legend Trevor Sinclair.
Moyes is working wonders at West Ham. Meanwhile Celtic are in disarray, trailing in the wake of bitter rivals Rangers.
Neil Lennon quit the club last week with Hoops fans demanding a complete overhaul at Celtic Park.
West Ham know Celtic feeling only too well but are on the up under Moyes
West Ham fans know that feeling only too well. Moyes kept the club up last season after a tempestuous campaign.
But he has transformed the east Londoners into European contenders this term.
West Ham are enjoying their best season for 35 years and are currently fourth in the Premier League.
Stay there come what May and West Ham will be in the Champions League next season barring a cruel set of results.
Moyes is doing such a good job that he is now being touted for a return to Celtic, where he started out in his playing days.
‘West Ham fans won’t thank me’ Legend Sinclair touts Moyes for Hoops job
Hammers legend Trevor Sinclair made the suggestion on talkSPORT.
Sinclair, whose mother is Irish, keeps a close eye on his old club and is also huge Celtic fan.
He conceded he won’t be popular with West Ham fans for his suggestion but that Moyes is the perfect man for the Celtic rebuild.
“Listen West Ham fans won’t appreciate this, but I’d love Moyes to go up there,” Sinclair said on talkSPORT.
“Because I think it needs that kind of man to just go in there and start afresh (and) rebuild the whole club from bottom to top.
“I think a manager like that is needed.
“He’s not going to leave the situation (with West Ham flying high and a new contract in the pipeline).”
Moyes moves quickly to rule out leaving Hammers for old club
As Sinclair was touting Moyes for the Celtic job, the man himself moved to distance himself.
The manager told the press ahead of Saturday’s game against Man City that he has no intention of leaving West Ham (Daily Star).
“I have no intentions of going anywhere. I’m really happy here. We are quietly ticking things along,” Moyes told the press (Daily Star).
“I have already spoken to David Sullivan. I just want to go about the job and being professional. Contracts are not that important in football management.
“Hopefully we can start to sustain a level of league position.”
Open and shut case.
