McGuinness, who last week led Donegal to their third provincial crown in four years, had been lured to Celtic Park by previous boss Neil Lennon after delivering the Sam Maguire in September 2012.

Lennon was convinced the Glenties man's 'skill-set' would work across both codes and new Celtic manager Ronny Deila required little time to be convinced of his worth to the side.

The Norwegian has promoted the 41-year-old to a consultancy role with the seniors and McGuinness is relishing the challenges ahead.

Speaking to Today with Sean O’Rourke on Irish radio, he said: “It’s been fantastic, a privilege.

"Most of my work was with the development squad, but now I have more of a role with the first-team.

“Ronny is keen on the psychological side of things. He is very driven by high performance and balancing that with high energy.

"He likes to keep his players positive and fresh and I'm looking forward to working with him."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
