John Hughes has been linked with a return to in charge of the Colts team which will play in the Lowland League from next season.

The former Hibs and defender had a spell with in the mid-nineties before going on to manage various clubs ranging from Hibs to Hartlepool United.

Last December he was brought in to manage Ross County with a home win over in February forcing Neil Lennon to resign two days later.

Tommy McIntyre has managed the /Colts side over the last seven years alongside Stevie Frail, Damien Duff and but it is unlikely that Hughes would come in as co-manager.

With a complete lack of leadership inside it is unclear who is making decisions but picking up on a report in the Daily Record, Glasgow Times reports:

Yogi departed Ross County this summer after keeping the Staggies in the Scottish Premiership.

He had been linked with the vacant United job after Micky Mellon departed, but the Daily Record now say that he could join his former side Celtic.

Both the Hoops and Rangers have been given the green light to include colt sides in the Lowland League from next season.

The Lowland League deal is officially for one season only, such an offer working with the u-20 team wouldn’t appear so attractive compared to managing a Premiership side but nothing has been predictable at over the last 12 months.

In the summer of 1997 Murdo MacLeod was appointed Celtic’ Reserve manager and quickly promoted to be Wim Jansen’s assistant when the Dutchman was appointed.
