CELTIC assistant coach Gavin Strachan has emerged as a target for the vacant Dundee manager’s role.

Former Hoops striker Mark McGhee, who was brought in during the season to replace James McPake, has left the Dens Park club following their relegation from the top flight.

Now Gordon Strachan, who has been named the club’s new director of football, has turned his attention to his son who joined the Parkhead set-up from Peterborough in June 2020.

The 43-year-old coach has become an integral part of Ange Postecoglou’s backroom team along with No.2 John Kennedy and ex-captain Stephen McManus.

The Parkhead side’s B team boss Darren O’Dea, who had a spell on Tayside as a player, has also been mentioned as a possibility for the post, according to a report in the Glasgow Times.

Yet another former Parkhead performer Paul Hartley, who led Cove Rangers to promotion to the Championship after an impressive season at the Highlanders, has also been mentioned as McGhee’s successor.
