Potential Celtic managerial candidate Marco Rose has commented on his future at RB Salzburg after being installed as third favourite to take charge after Neil Lennon at the end of the season, as reported by The Daily Record.
The paper say the 42-year-old is now 11/1 at the bookies to be appointed as permanent manager at Celtic Park following Brendan Rodgers’ exit to Leicester City last month.
The RB Salzburg boss has now hinted he could be leaving his current post at the end of the season.
As quoted by The Daily Record, Rose said: “I think it’s not so often in your career, that you have a lot of requests and then you have a lot of options. I know what I owe the club, and yet at some point it’s about my personal situation, about goals, about new challenges, and about making a decision.”
Clearly Rose is a wanted man having enjoyed immense success at the Austrian club.
He guided them to a title win last season and is well on his way to repeating that feat this term, with his side currently nine points clear at the top of the table.
Also guiding them to the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League last season and into the last 16 this time around, he ticks plenty of boxes for Celtic supporters.
Fans will also remember his team romping to success against the Hoops earlier this season in the group stages of the European competition, winning matches home and away.
Whether he’d be tempted by a move to the Scottish Premiership is another story though and with the manager confirming he has plenty of offers on the table then Celtic could be squeezed out by another ambitious European club.
