LUBO MORAVCIK has promised to transform Slovakian football after being appointed vice-president of his nation’s FA.

The Celtic legend spent four years at the Hoops from 1998-2002 becoming a fans’ favourite following his two goals in the epic 5-1 win over Rangers shortly after joining from MSV Duisburg.

Moravcik, 50, said: “I would like to use my powers to bring more finance into our game and make Slovakian football more powerful.

“Football should be about putting money back into the game and improving our standard.

“I owe Slovakian football a lot. It gave me a career at so many brilliant clubs like St Etienne and Celtic. Now I have a chance of giving something back.”

Moravcik made a total of 79 appearances for Czechoslovakia and Slovakia and played for Czechoslovakia at the 1990 World Cup Finals in Italy.

Slovakia have been paired with England, Russia and Wales at this summer’s European Championship in France.

They will also face Scotland in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers alongside Lithuania, Malta, Slovenia and England.
