Gary McAllister to Celtic Park?


McAllister could be set for Celtic coaching role, writes Sam May.

Former Liverpool great and first-team coach, Gary McAllister could be heading back to his homeland this summer, to link back up with new Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers.

It is understood the 51-year old Scot, could become the Northern Irishman’s No.2, as the former Kop boss, looks to re-shape his coaching staff ahead of the new campaign. A move would see him leave his ambassadorial role at Anfield.

Having been brought to Liverpool by the former Reds manager Rodgers in 2015, McAllister’s duties were to remind the Reds’ hierarchy of the importance of experience.

McAllister, who signed for the club aged 35, went on to make 87 appearances for Liverpool and helped his side to win the FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup.

Rodgers, 43, could also look to bring in former assistant managers Colin Pascoe and Sean O’Driscoll who both worked with him on Merseyside, whilst Neil Lennon and Malky Mackay have also been noted.

    McAllister will never go to Parkhead as anything other than a pundit for the MSM. Do you not realise that he is a died in the wool fan of the club that died in 2012 and has nothing but hatred for Celtic. This akin to Steven Gerard signing for Everton.
