Slaven Bilic is keen on having discussions with Celtic about becoming the club’s permanent manager this summer, as reported by BBC Scotland.

The 50-year-old Croatian is out of work having left Saudi club Al-Ittihad in February, sacked after winning just three of his fifteen games in charge.

No wonder he wants the job.

Bilic was once a rising managerial star having impressed as manager of his homeland between 2006 and 2012.

After spells at Lokomotiv Moscow and Besiktas, he rose to prominence in the British game as manager of West Ham United, where initially he was a very popular boss indeed.

It all went a bit pear shaped for him there too though, eventually being sacked with the Hammers well on their way to getting relegated.

Unsurprisingly a number of fairly high profile managers are keen on resurrecting their careers at Celtic and will always be linked by media outlets, however a move for Bilic is far from sensible for us right now.

It just seems like too much of a risk with massive ambitions on the immediate horizon.

One to avoid for me.
