It’s been reported that Donegal’s All-Ireland winning manger, Jim McGuinness, is to return to Parkhead today for talks on a possible career at the club, after he attended last night’s historic win over European giant Barcelona in the champions league.

Recently he has played down speculation of being linked with soccer clubs across the water but had previously visited the Scottish club and toured their training facilities.

It is being reported in the national media that he is due to meet club executives later today to discuss a possible future at the club.

It is being speculated that such a move to the Glasgow based club could involve him maintaining his position as Donegal Senior team manager as well as working with their young players at their Youth Academy on a part time basis.

Although he played down links to Celtic after his initial visit he has commented in the past that if a professional sporting organisation did approach him it was “obviously something you’d have to consider”.

McGuinness was among the crowd who watched an historic Celtic victory over Barcelona last by two goals to one in their Group C Champions league clash last night.

Goals from Victor Wanyama and Tony Watt meant a late Lionel Messi goals was not enough for the Catalan side and it is being hailed as one of their greatest wins since the European Cup win over Inter Milan in 1967.
