Exclusive: Frank McAvennie refuses to rule out Jose Mourinho taking Celtic job

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Frank McAvennie refused to rule out Jose Mourinho becoming the new Celtic manager.

The Portuguese, who was sacked by Tottenham earlier this month, has recently emerged as a shock candidate to replace Neil Lennon at Parkhead.

Reports believe that almost straight after Mourinho was relieved of his duties in north London, he was approached by the Hoops about the vacant role in Paradise.

Mourinho endured a wretched campaign at Tottenham, although he was perhaps harshly sacked just six days before the Carabao Cup final, which they ended up losing 1-0 to against Manchester City last month.

It means that the Special One failed to win silverware for the first time in his career, but could the lure of trying to become top dogs in Scotland once again appeal to him?

Can you name all of these obscure Celtic players? We'll start with an easy one...

McAvennie told Football FanCast:

“I know he likes Celtic – when Celtic played in the UEFA Cup final against Porto, he couldn’t believe the fans and said that night ‘it’s a club that I would love to manage’, but I think he meant with those kind of supporters, rather than to come to Scotland.

“Would I like Mourinho up there? God yeah. It would be a breath of fresh air into Scottish football. Do I think it will happen? No, but I would love it. Never rule anything out, I’ve been in football too long, because just when you say something you end up looking like a fool. “
