Now that the league campaign is over and there’s now just one match remaining in Celtic’s season, fans have been reflecting on Brendan Rodgers’ first season in charge, turning their attention to one scenario that may have seen this term turn out very differently for them.
David Moyes left his position at Sunderland earlier this week after a disastrous season in the English Premier League that resulted in their relegation.
Prior to taking that position at the Stadium Of Light and before Rodgers was appointed Celtic boss, Moyes was one of the front runners for the vacant Celtic post in the wake of Ronny Deila’s departure.
The former Hoops player even revealed when he took up the post at the Black Cats that he turned down the opportunity to lead Celtic into a new era.
It’s fair to say that Hoops supporters are delighted that he didn’t become manager given the way Rodgers has already made himself a modern legend at the club.
Had Moyes been in charge, would they have had even close to the same success this season?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
Just take a minute a think that Davie Moyes was hotly tipped for the Celtic job before BR got it #luckyescape ????

Mind when I wanted Moyes to be Celtic manager? How I've managed to gain a uni degree is beyond me

How happy are you that Moyes never got the chance to manage Celtic

Just imagine if a lot of Celtic fans got their wish and Moyes was appointed rather than Rodgers #dodgedabullet

In an alternate reality we got him instead of Brendan Rodgers… https://t.co/pJCyY7SxlT

@krys1888 I need to go back into my set of posts and delete any of those 'Moyes for Celtic' posts.
So happy I was wrong and we got Brendan Rodgers.
