Mancini: I’d man­age stronger Celtic side

The Herald - Herald Sport - - IRN-BRU CUP FINAL -

ROBERTO MANCINI has re­vealed he would like to man­age Celtic,

How­ever, the Ital­ian in­sisted he would only take the job if the Hoops had a team that could take on Europe’s elite on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

The for­mer Manch­ester City gaffer ad­mit­ted: “The Scot­tish fans are the best in the world. I love them.

“In one way, it would be nice to see Celtic and Rangers in the Pre­mier League, but I don’t think it will ever hap­pen be­cause it would also be the end of Scot­tish foot­ball.

“If Celtic were to build a team strong enough to reg­u­larly com­pete in the Cham­pi­ons League, I might de­cide to man­age them one day.

“For me, that is the next step for them. They have the fans and they have the his­tory. Now they have to strive to be­come an im­por­tant player at the top level in Europe.”
