Jota could be set for a second chance in Saudi Arabia with Al Ittihad with Nuno Espirito Santo's reportedly set to take over.

The former Wolves and Tottenham boss was last week sacked after the Saudi Pro League champions went five games without a win. 

Former Celtic star Jota was frozen out under the Portuguese gaffer though. Due to squad restrictions in relation to the league's rules on foreign players, the 24-year-old was omitted from Al Ittihad's player pool for domestic games. It means until January Jota will only be able to feature in AFC Champions League matches.

But with the winter transfer window only a matter of weeks away now, the timing of the new manager's arrival could present Jota with the chance to impress. 

Fabrizio Romano claims the new Al Ittihad manager will be Marcelo Gallardo.

He wrote on X: "Marcelo Gallardo will sign as new Al Ittihad manager on contract valid until June 2025. It will also include an option to extend for further 18 months, until June 2027."

Meanwhile, Conor McGregor has revealed that he's hoping to visit Celtic Park one day in the future.

The UFC star has taken to social media to praise a fan display made by the Green Brigade from several years ago as part of an online Q&A.

McGregor is a renowned Celtic fan and has not been shy in letting people know about it. 

He struck up a good relationship with Kieran Tierney during the left-back's time under Brendan Rodgers during his initial tenure. 

And his fellow Celtic supporters have been big fans of the MMA fighter too.

In a banner displayed by the Green Brigade ahead of Celtic's 5-0 win over Astana in Champions League qualifying, McGregor was quoted. 

The slogan of his, which he used after his win over Diego Brandao back in 2014, read: "We're not here to take part, we're here to take over!"
