Ex-Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko puts Celtic on red alert as he targets managerial job to Britain

ANDRIY SHEVCHENKO wants to make a managerial move to Britain — and has put Celtic and other clubs on alert.

The ex-Chelsea and AC Milan striker is keen to work in the UK again after quitting as Ukraine boss after a Euro 2020 quarter final defeat to England.

Shevchenko, 45, is free to move and feelers have already gone out from the top agency he works with to find out about vacancies.

The legendary forward, who is Ukraine’s all-time top scorer with 48, even had interviews in the summer but failed to land a job.

Now he he hopes his star name will be enough to tempt a club to take a chance.

Sheva has only worked in a managerial capacity at international level but was a success in his five years in the Ukraine job.

Their run to that knock-out meeting with the Three Lions was the first time Ukraine have reached the quarter-finals of the European Championship.

There would be no problem with a work permit as the former Chelsea star has had a base in England for years.


The 45-year-old also speaks English and and has good knowledge of the domestic game.

His availability has got him on wish lists and he could be a surprise choice at Scottish heavyweights Celtic if Ange Postecoglou does not work out.

The former Australia manager has had a tricky start at the Hoops with seven defeats in all competitions so far after his late arrival in the summer.
