The Red Devils’ huge 3-0 win over Stoke City was a major boost for manager Louis van Gaal, but the club’s future plans for his successor may have just taken a big hit with the latest reports that Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs could be on his way out.
According to Betfair [per Benchwarmers.ie], Ryan Giggs has left Man United and will take over as manager of Celtic within the next few days. Giggs was not on the Man United bench during the club’s win on Tuesday.

Giggs is one of the most decorated Man United players of all-time, having won 13 Premier League titles in a more than 20 year career with the club. He played in 963 games for the club before retiring at the end of the 2013-14 season.
Under former manager David Moyes, Giggs served as a player-coach and briefly served as interim player-manager after Moyes’ sacking. When Louis van Gaal was hired as the permanent manager in 2014, Giggs was hired as his assistant manager and was being groomed to potentially take over the position when LvG retires.
