In what could be one of the more bizarre managerial appointments in Scottish football this year it appears former Celtic midfielder Massimo Donati has ‘registered an interest’ in becoming the next Raith Rovers boss.
The former Milan player is without a club and although he hasn’t officially hung up his boots he’s looking to get into management.
Donati has been a bit of a cult figure among the Celtic support, he may not have hit the heights some expected at the club but he’s gone full Celtic since leaving the bhoys.
The man who once snatched a vital late Champions League late winner has a Celtic crest tattooed where his heart is and he still supports the bhoys in green.
The zitslisn has had stints with Hamilton and St Mirren in the last two years and now he’s potentially looking at a new albeit bizarre adventure.
According to the Evening Times, the Raith Rovers post has attracted a lot of applicants and they’re currently compiling a short list.
Rovers chairman Bill Clark said: “We’ve had applications from all sorts or people – some seasoned coaches, some young people with little experience. Some people in jobs, some people out of jobs.
“We will draw up a criteria as a board, professionally and sensibly, and look at who is available and who is the right person for the job.”
Massimo Donati as Raith Rovers manager could be peak Scottish football.
