FORMER Hearts boss John McGlynn will be given a key role in Brendan Rodgers’ new-look Celtic backroom team.
The two men crossed paths when Liverpool and the Tynecastle outfit met in Europe in 2012 with the Edinburgh side’s gaffer making an impression on the-then Anfield boss.

Rodgers said: “John has been a manager before. I came across him when Liverpool played Hearts in the Europa League and was very impressed. He’s a good guy with good knowledge of the game.
“He’ll get to see over the coming weeks how I work, but he’s a coach and he knows football. He’s someone I’ll look at specifically to do that. He knows opponents; he knows Hearts well for a start!
“John is looking forward to that position and it will be great for him. He’ll have a handle on Scottish football.
“I always look to have a technical analyst who will watch opponents. I always look within the club to see who is there and the I bring my people in with me. We have that, along with John McGlynn.”
