Celtic are reported to be astonished over reports that the SFA will investigate Gordon Strachan’s consultancy role at the club.
The former Scotland boss is the Technical Director at Dundee but on Tuesday Celtic announced that Strachan would be taking up a three month consultancy role covering the Academy, Woman’s team and the newly formed B team.
The SFA has a rule that no-one can work with two clubs at the same time without obtaining prior permission. No formal charge has been raised by the SFA but Sky Sports reports:
It is understood Celtic are astonished by the developments and are confident Strachan’s return does not break any rules.
Strachan managed Celtic between 2005 and 2009 and has two sons, Gavin and Craig employed by the club.
How the SFA applies their own rules is far from consistent, last season Celtic had two matches postponed within 48 hours of Boli Bolingoli failing to self-isolate after a trip to Spain, later in the season it took two months before Nathan Patterson was suspended after being fined for picking up a Fixed Penalty for attending a house party while Scotland was in Tier 4 regulations.
