Steve Evans has distanced himself from the Celtic job, according to Sky Sports.
The Scot was mooted as a surprise name in the list of potential candidates in the press following the news Bhoys boss Ronny Deila will leave the club at the end of the season.
Such is the nature of life under erratic Whites owner Massimo Cellino, the 53-year old’s future remains far from certain.
Out of contract with Leeds at the end of the season, his job has been linked with Fabio Cannavaro despite a recent run of good form.
His future remains unclear at Elland Road, though has firmly announced his desire to remain with his current employers despite links with the club he has supported all of his life.
When quizzed on the Parkhead matter, Evans only reaffirmed his commitment to the cause in Yorkshire.
‘I’ve been a Celtic fan since I was two seconds old. I’ll always be a Celtic fan. Celtic is an iconic football club but Leeds United is an iconic football club, so my real focus and only focus is representing this famous club.’
‘If I was offered a contract here at Leeds in the summer and Celtic wanted me I would say no to Celtic. I’ve made no secret of the fact I want to be head coach at Leeds next season.’
Is Evans wise to place all his eggs in one basket, considering his boss?
