Celtic legend Martin O'Neill could be set for a shock return to football management. 

The 72-year-old is reportedly being lined up to join an Eastern European side. 

Fanatik claims that Rapid Bucharest are working to appoint O'Neill as their new manager. 

It's suggested that a decision on the matter should be made by the end of next week. 

The Romanian top-flight team has just two games left of the season in the division's top six split.

They sit bottom of the Championship pile on 29 points, but could potentially still climb up to fourth.

O'Neill - who became a hit in Glasgow during his five years at Celtic during the early 2000s - has been out of coaching since a brief spell at Nottingham Forest in 2019. 

Before that, he enjoyed an illustrious career in the dugout with Leicester, Aston Villa, Sunderland and the Republic of Ireland national team.

Nowadays, he's most noted for appearing as a pundit on BBC or ITV when they have international football on their channels. 

He also regularly appears alongside Jim White and Simon Jordan on talkSPORT.

O'Neill was at Celtic Park last May to present his former side with the Premiership trophy.

Meanwhile, with 40 appearances under his belt so far this season, and after bagging a four-year contract extension last week, Liam Scales is enjoying his time at Celtic right now.

Rewind to the beginning of the current Scottish Premiership campaign, however, and describing the 25-year-old as on the periphery of Brendan Rodgers' plans wasn't unreasonable.

Having spent a season-long loan at Aberdeen for the entirety of the previous season, it took a string of injuries for Scales to carve a place in the manager's starting 11 – and now Liam Scales highlights the key moments when things clicked into place for him during the 2023/24 trail.
