BT Sport’s Darrell Currie has poured cold water over any suggestions that Roberto Martinez could be the next Celtic manager.

He tweeted to confirm that Martinez has plans to stay with the Belgian national side for at least the 2020 Euros.

The former Everton manager had been a favoured pick among supporters, especially given the fact that he works so closely with former Celtic ace Shaun Maloney, who would have no doubt followed him in his next move.

Martinez has seen his stock as a manager rise higher than ever after the success he enjoyed with Belgium at the World Cup over the summer.

Despite many being dubious about his appointment, he helped guide them to a third-place finish in Russia, the highest in the country’s history.

Currie adds that Martinez still holds a strong affinity for Scottish football, having spent time in the country as a player, with a future move to the Hoops not being ruled out.
