Slaven Bilic,coach of Craotia and former West Ham and Everton defender has waltzed into Scotland for an International friendly game and started batting his eyelids towards the Old Firm. Although Bilic has again pledged his loyalty to Croatia and has claimed that he wants to manage them beyond Euro 2008 and into the World Cup qualifiers, he still reckons that one call from Rangers or Celtic would have any sane manager sprinting towards Glasgow with the frenzied speed of a doped up sprinter. Bilic said:
“I have said that I want to stay as a manager and I am enjoying my time with the players.
“We have a young team with great young players coming through and all the players can play in the World Cup qualifiers when they start, apart from maybe one or two.
“Therefore I am enjoying my time here and I want to stay if they offer me a new contract which they are probably going to do.
“Scotland does not have the best league in the world but put it this way, there is no trainer or manager in the world who, if called by Rangers or Celtic, would not walk to Glasgow.”
Would anybody be surprised if we saw this chain smoker puffing away in a Glaswegian dugout next autumn?
