Steve Clarke rules out Celtic rumors

Steve Clarke talks about his ambitions with Scotland national team.

Steve Clarke

says that he wants to reach the 2022 World Cup finals and insists that he is not thinking about being

Celtic’s

new head coach.

Celtic board members have been looking for a new manager after

Neil Lennon’s

departure, and Clarke is one of the club’s favorite options to take over.

Here is what he said about the matter in a Q&A session with Edinburgh-based club Team United:

“After the Euros I will go on a big holiday. It is going to be very tiring then we will decide what happens.

“But I have a contract with the Scottish FA up until December 2022 and hopefully I can take the team to the World Cup finals in Qatar in 2022 as well, that would be great and then maybe I can think about club football.

“When you have been in football as long as me, you tend not to look too far ahead.

“I look forward to the games in March and if we can win all of them we can concentrate on the Euros after that and we will see what happens.”

And about his squad he added

: “I don’t think there will be too many surprises for the Euros. The players who did the hard work and got us qualified deserve first chance.

“But before we get to the Euros we have three games in March so there might be one or two surprises in that squad.

“I need to pick a bigger squad because we have three games in a week, a very short period of time, and maybe one or two in that squad might force themselves into my plans for the summer.”
