David Moyes could spare himself West Ham United sack by following up on Rangers dream

West Ham United boss David Moyes has openly expressed his desire in the past to manage in Glasgow one day, and the recent Rangers vacancy could pique his interest.

Moyes finds himself under huge pressure at West Ham following a dire start to the Premier League campaign that has left the Hammers sitting in 16th over Christmas.

Reports so far suggest that West Ham are happy to back Moyes and keep him as manager over the winter break [BBC], but he’s under no illusion about the pressure he’s facing.

With that in mind, the recent news emerging from Ibrox this week may have piqued his interest. Giovanni van Bronckhorst was sacked by Rangers after a terrible European campaign and a poor run of results in the Scottish Premiership.

The Glaswegian club are now searching for a replacement, and Moyes could put his name in the hat.

The Glasgow-born manager spent three years at Celtic at the start of his playing career and has always expressed his desire to return to his hometown – regardless of which side of the Old Firm Derby he lands on.

When asked if he’d be interested in managing either Rangers or Celtic back in 2018, Moyes told the Daily Record: “Yeah I would be.

“I’ve been close to a few of them once or twice and thought about it a lot. I would be.

“It’s my home and I’d like to come back and do it sometime.”

There’s perhaps no better time for Moyes to go an fulfil his dream. The sack is closing in on him at the London Stadium and leaving now would save him and the club the hassle.

It would stop Moyes from collecting any compensation, but it would also stop a sacking staining his record and legacy in east London. If he leaves on his own terms, his tenure at West Ham would certainly be reflected in a better light.
