HISTORY Bhoy Gordon Strachan is being lined up for a dramatic return to Celtic, according to a report.
The former Hoops boss is on the brink of being offered a senior role in the new backroom revamp, according to a report in the Scottish Sun on Sunday.
Strachan went into club folklore when he emulated the feat of Parkhead managerial greats Willie Maley and Jock Stein with his hat-trick of titles in his first three years as Martin O’Neill’s successor after taking over in 2005.
The 64-year-old former Scotland, Aberdeen and Manchester United star is currently technical director at Dundee, his first club, but is believed to be poised for a move back to Glasgow in a similar position.
Strachan, who also had a four-year stint as Scotland international gaffer, could work with his son Gavin who took charge of the first team for two games at the turn of the year following the Covid fall-out after the ill-fated Dubai trip.
He worked closely with John Kennedy and Stephen McManus after the departure of Neil Lennon in February and all three are expected to be kept on as the club prepare to welcome Ange Postecoglou.
Now it appears Strachan Snr is ready to become part of the new backroom jigsaw.
