Gordon Strachan has entered talks to swap his role as Dundee technical role for a ‘senior technical role’ at former club Celtic (DM).

It was reported last week that Celtic had targeted the Dens Park advisor for a behind the scenes role. Now things have moved forward and talks have started between the two parties over his specific duties.

Strachan was previously manager of Celtic. The former Scotland manager has been vital for Dundee boss James McPake, who has stated previously that the Dens Park club would not have been promoted back to the cinch Premiership for season 2021/22 without Strachan’s guidance.

Dundee are back in pre-season ahead of the new campaign and have taken Luton Town prospect Corey Panter on trial. The 20-year-old defender first joined the English Championship club in 2009 and has signed a new deal down south, joining McPake’s side with a view to a loan transfer.
