David Moyes says he will wait until the summer before deciding on his next job, with the role at Aston Villa of some interest to him.
The former Everton and Manchester United manager is available after leaving Real Sociedad earlier in the campaign following a largely unsuccessful spell in Spain.
He is thought to be on Villa’s shortlist to replace Remi Garde, while the Scot is the favourite to take over from Ronny Deila at Celtic in the summer after the Norwegian announced on Wednesday he would be leaving at the end of the campaign.
However, Moyes – speaking as a pundit on Sky Sports on Wednesday night – said he will make a decision in the summer and there were several jobs that interest him, with the position at Villa believed to be an attractive proposition despite all the behind-the-scenes turmoil and the club’s recent relegation to the Championship.
The 52-year-old said: “I’m going to wait until summer time and make a decision in the summer time. There’s lots of clubs that will interest me.”
When asked specifically about the Celtic job, he added: “Celtic are a great club. Celtic’s a brilliant football club, a great football club, with unbelievable support and fan base.”
Former Leicester boss Nigel Pearson remains the bookmakers’ favourite for the Villa job, but Moyes is also in the frame along with the likes of Hull boss Steve Bruce and Preston manager Simon Grayson.
