Celtic pundit John-Paul Mason has recently delivered his verdict on David Moyes and his suitability to the Parkhead-based side.

This came after Mason appeared a guest on the latest episode of the ‘A Celtic State of Mind’ podcast and the panel discussed numerous issues involving the Parkhead-based outfit.

One topic of discussion was the next manager and Mason discussed the idea of David Moyes taking over at Celtic. He made it clear that Celtic need to move away from an appointment like that.

ExWHUemployee has recently talked about Moyes and whether he’d want a move to Celtic. The Hammers insider said that while Moyes will be tempted to move to Parkhead, he’d stay at West Ham. He also described Celtic to be a ‘massive club’.

Is Moyes a good option for Celtic?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Mason addressed the potential idea of the 57-year-old managing at Parkhead and he feels that Celtic need ‘an appointment, not a disappointment’ and they need someone who is more progressive than the former Manchester boss.

He said: “I think Moyes is still going back to the whole Celtic connection, former player and all of that. I get that that is an aspect that needs to be explored but I think we need to move away from that and move away from it with a positive and progressive, not regressive [approach]. There’s an appointment, not a disappointment.”

TIF Thoughts on David Moyes to Celtic…

Moyes certainly has a previous connection to Celtic because he did play for the Hoops in his career.

His current West Ham side is fifth in the Premier League and they are still in with a chance of qualifying for the top four. Moyes has picked up a points-per-match tally of 1.49, which is pretty impressive (as per Transfermarkt).

Having said that, Moyes’ West Ham team is known to sit deeper and defend narrow. Celtic fans might want a more attacking approach and because of that, it is easy to see why Mason brands Moyes’ potential appointment as ‘regressive’.
