DAVIE MOYES has shot down reports he is on Celtic’s wanted list after Neil Lennon’s departure this week.

The former Hoops defender was heavily linked with the Parkhead job in the summer of 2016 when it was clear Ronny Deila would be on the move after two years in charge.

It looked like a straight choice between Brendan Rodgers and Moyes for the post and, of course, the Northern Irishman got the nod for a two-and-a-half year reign that brought in seven successive domestic honours.

Now Moyes’ name has resurfaced as the great guessing game gets into full swing with names for Lennon’s successor flying around from every angle.

However, the 57-year-old Glaswegian insists he is NOT interested and stressed he was “not going anywhere.”

Moyes, who has also managed Preston, Everton, Manchester United and Real Sociedad, has led West Ham to fourth in the Premier League as he has turned things around in spectacular style with the London outfit. Champions League qualification is now the Scot’s priority.

Quizzed about the Celtic job, he told the Evening Standard: “I’ve got no intentions of going anywhere.

“I’ve spoken to David Sullivan (club owner) and things are quietly ticking along. I don’t want anything to get in the way of what we’re doing.”

John Kennedy has taken over from Lennon in a caretaker capacity and will be in the dug-out for the visit of Aberdeen tomorrow afternoon.
