Dundee technical director Gordon Strachan is being lined up for a return to former club Celtic this summer (Sun).

The 64-year-old has been working behind the scenes at Dens Park and has been instrumental in providing guidance to Dee manager James McPake, which has helped Dundee back into the cinch Premiership. Strachan has previously managed Celtic and the Scotland National Team, amongst others.

Now former club Celtic look likely to come calling, with the Parkhead side lining up an offer to take him back to Glasgow. The role would offer him the chance to work in a similar capacity to the one he currently has at Dundee.

Celtic are at the start of a new era under manager Ange Postecoglou and will meet Dundee in the Premiership this coming season. Parkhead owner Dermot Desmond is an admirer of former boss Strachan and thinks he is the right man to take an upstairs role. Celtic have been searching for a director of football, but have so far been unsuccessful.

Dundee begin their 2021/22 season against Brora Rangers in the Premier Sports Cup next month.
