Peter Grant has been interviewed for the position of Dunfermline Athletic manager amid speculation he could join Eddie Howe’s backroom staff at Celtic (Scottish Sun).

Howe’s appointment as Celtic manager will be announced in the near future and it has been suggested Grant could rejoin the club he’s both played and coached at. He is out of work after leaving Alloa Athletic earlier this month following their relegation to League One from the Scottish Championship.

Grant was Bournemouth assistant manager earlier in his coaching career, where soon-to-be Celtic manager Howe made his name. But Grant could be swayed to become a manager again, Dunfermline looking for a swift appointment to replace Stevie Crawford, who resigned from his role at East End Park last week.

The 55-year-old has previously managed Norwich City and Fulham while he has also held coaching positions with Bournemouth, Celtic, West Brom, Birmingham City, West Ham and the Scotland National Team. Dunfermline have identified Grant as the man they want to lead their promotion push in the Scottish Championship next season.

The East End Park club lost in the Premiership play-off quarter-finals to Raith Rovers before Crawford’s resignation. Grant was also a potential target for the Falkirk head coach job but now appears to have the option of Celtic or Dunfermline as his next role.
