Steve Clarke has thrown his hat into the ring in the running for the Celtic managers job.
Clarke wants to get back into the game after losing his job at Reading last December. The 52 year old has experience under his belt, having previously been manager of West Brom and an assistant manager at Newcastle, Chelsea, West Ham and Liverpool.
He was last linked with the Fulham job in November, but the prospect of taking charge at Celtic Park will likely be more appealing than manager of a team that has struggled at the bottom end of the Championship this season.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Clarke said: “There are a lot of good managers out of work and Celtic is a great club.
If they want to give me a call, it would be nice”.
A number of names have been linked with the position at Parkhead after Ronny Deila announced he will depart at the end of the season.
David Moyes is seen as one of the frontrunners for the job and would be a popular choice for the fans. Clarke however is well aware of the appeal the job has: “Celtic is a massive club and anybody that comes from the west coast of Scotland understands the size.
“Next year will be fantastic with Rangers back in the top flight.
“Aberdeen made a good fist of it this year and hopefully Hibs will come back up through the play-offs from the Championship and it can be a really exciting league next year.
“It’s a big job and Celtic I’m sure have it in their own mind who they want to go after and who they want to target and we should just let Celtic get on with their business.”
