Celtic fans generally welcomed news that Shaun Maloney could return to the club but were left puzzled over what a ‘key strategic role’ might involve.

After the dramas of the last week the role earmarked for the former striker and Reserve teach coach is left undefined by Keith Jackson.

Moves seem well underway to appoint Ange Postecoglou as manager which leaves a very obvious need for a Director of Football/Sporting Director to help assemble a squad of players. Earlier this year Nick Hammond quit Celtic as Head of Football Operations with Peter Lawwell retiring from his role as CEO at the end of this month.

At the end of next week Belgium kick off their European Championship campaign against Russia with Maloney a key part of the coaching team assembled by Roberto Martinez. Their involvement could last the best part of a month.

According to the report Maloney doesn’t want to be in contention with his pal Fergal Harkin with the Manchester City man in the running for the DoF role. Not so according to Jackson’s piece.

The muddied waters at Celtic seem to have been rumbled up again with supporters completely in the dark about where all of the jigsaw pieces fit in with Dom McKay replacing Lawwell in 30 days time.

Should Ange Postecoglou be offered the Celtic job?

Yes, we have to trust the club, they know their job
