It was back in August Celtic announced Gordon Strachan had taken up a three-month advisory role to give his recommendations on the Celtic women’s set up and the B team currently playing in the Lowland Leagues.
It was a move that baffled many – Gordon Strachan has a good footballing mind but does he have the aptitude for the kind of insight needed to make the right recommendations?
We’re now two months into Gordon’s role at the club and who would have thought the former manager’s short stint would see him outlast our chief executive, Dom McKay.
CeltsAreHere.com has been told by a source close to the club, Strachan’s role was 100% a move made by Dermot Desmond.
The politician in Dom swerved a wider question back in June when asked if Gordon could be heading into the club as director of football. Telling Herald Scotland Strachan wouldn’t be hired for that particular role.
Less than two months later, the former Scotland boss took his place in the stands and has been in and around the club ever since.
Strachan’s contract with the club presumably ends in mid-November. Will Celtic fans be allowed to know what the former Hoops boss has got up to and what recommendations have been made?
We wouldn’t be surprised if Gordon was kept on so he can ‘look’ at the first team structure. However, we don’t know how that would fly with the SPFL who would likely step in due to Gordon’s ongoing job at Dundee.
We await Strachan’s recommendations.
