Celtic legend Moravcik wants SPL job

Celtic legend Lubo Moravcik wants an SPL coaching job.

Currently in charge of Slovakia U17, Moravcik told the Sunday Mail: "I have good memories of Scotland. I love coming back, still have friends here and always receive a warm welcome.

"Scotland is a proper footballing country. The people are passionate and I miss that. I share their passion and that's why I want to return and work in Scottish football.

"During my career I played in Slovakia, France, Germany and Switzerland and felt lucky to be a footballer. But coming to Scotland made my life even more special.

"The country and its people took my appetite to a new level and they will do the same if I get into management here.

"For the past year I have been coaching the Slovakia Under-17s. Before that I moved to Corsica to live after retiring from Celtic in summer 2002. But I felt out of the way and needed to be closer to football.

"My work is enjoyable but I feel the time is right to move. I have the UEFA qualifications to work for any club in Europe."

Moravcik would consider all offers but wants to work at a club with a desire to improve.

He said: "I want the club to show ambition. There also needs to be a relationship with the chairman, good communication.

"The bottom line is you need to win games. Because of my CV as a player it may allow me the chance of a job but after that I need to win respect as a gaffer."
