GORDON STRACHAN’S short-term return to Celtic in a consultancy role will be reviewed by the SFA’s professional game board.

They will investigate if the 64-year-old ex-Hoops manager’s move breaches strict rules surrounding dual interest.

The one-time Scotland international boss already holds the position of Dundee technical director, a post he will return to before the end of the year.

Strachan has agreed to go back to Parkhead as an advisor with a remit to oversee the B side set-up, youths and women’s sides – without giving up his Dens Park remit.

However, it appears the SFA have not been made aware about the unusual arrangement and the governing body will now look to see if the double role breaches Article 13, according to a report in the Daily Record.

The rule states any person “involved in any capacity whatsoever in the management or administration of a club’ can not be involved with another club at the same time unless they have “the prior written consent of the board”.

Ange Postecoglou has already welcomed the introduction of the club’s former gaffer who won three successive titles during his four years after arriving in 2005.
