Ryan Giggs in running for Celtic job – report

by Leo Nieboer

Ryan Giggs is among the candidates to replace Ronny Delia as Celtic boss next season, according to MailOnline’s Sam Mokbel.

The Celtic hot-seat recently became available after Delia announced his intention to leave the Glasgow club at the end of the season.

Giggs, currently serving as Louis van Gaal‘s assistant at Manchester United, has been linked to several managerial posts during the season amid reports that the Welshman is keen to get some managerial experience under his belt.

It is reported that Giggs is aware of Celtic’s interest, and sees the job as a good opportunity to further his aspirations to manage at the top level.

As rumours of Jose Mourinho‘s impending arrival at Old Trafford refuse to die down, the 42-year-old’s future at Man United seems precarious. And so, for a man with a desire to manage top sides, the Celtic job comes across as an ideal stepping stone.

Of course, as Gary Neville proved during an ill-fated spell at Valencia, the life of a manager is difficult, and a club of Celtic’s stature will serve as a baptism of fire for Giggs.

However, placed in a far less imposing league and equipped with more direct managerial experience than his ex-teammate, Giggs would have an improved chance of success north of the border. If Giggs wants to manage United one day – like many fans hope – he must prove his worth at a club like Celtic.
