Celtic face a decision in the coming weeks as to who will be the club’s permanent new manager, with Neil Lennon’s chances potentially taking a hit following the disappointing 2-0 Old Firm derby defeat on Sunday.
The Scottish giants’ board have plenty to consider in the near future, with plenty of managers both in and out of work potential candidates to succeed Brendan Rodgers next season.
One of those is David Moyes, who has been out of work for a year after leaving West Ham United, while he has now been joined by Chris Hughton, who was sacked by Brighton and Hove Albion on Monday after narrowly avoiding relegation from the Premier League.
“Lionel Messi is Barcelona’s James McFadden!” – Watch Scottish football fans name their clubs’ Lionel Messi in the video below…
The murmurs of course started instantly that the 60-year-old could become a target seeing as he wouldn’t cost any compensation, and lots of Celtic supporters have made their feelings on who they would prefer out of the former Newcastle United man and Moyes very clear.
One Bhoys fan said they would “take him over Moyes”, another said “Hughton is better than Moyes man”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Chris Hughton to Celtic maybe? I’d take him over Moyes #CelticFamily

Chris Hughton to Celtic anyone? He’d be better than Sméagol Moyes!

Hughton is better than Moyes man.

Chris Hughton why not? Surely a better option than Moyes or Lennon?

Just thinking the Mourinho-type appointments might b pie in the sky – so after that I’d rather have hughton than say wenger/moyes/ranieri.
