Celtic Eye Experienced Youth Coach for Under-18 Role – Report




Celtic is ramping up its efforts to strengthen its coaching staff, with Adam Asghar currently leading the race for the under-18 head coach position, reports RecordSport.

Brendan Rodgers and his team are actively seeking to bolster their youth development program, with Asghar identified as a highly suitable candidate due to his extensive background in youth and development coaching.

Adam Asghar, currently the under-21 head coach at Southampton, has a commendable track record, including a notable stint at Sunderland where his team was a close runner-up in the Under-19 Premier League title race against Manchester City. His coaching credentials are further enhanced by his experience as a first-team coach at Dundee United under several managers, and significant roles within the academies at Motherwell and Dundee United.

Aside from Asghar, former Celtic players Charlie Mulgrew and Jonny Hayes are also being considered for coaching roles within the club’s youth setup. Mulgrew and Hayes bring with them not only extensive playing experience but also a deep understanding of the club’s culture and ethos, which could be invaluable in nurturing young talent.

Celtic’s recruitment drive doesn’t stop at the under-18 level. Following Darren O’Dea’s promotion to pathway manager, the club is also looking to fill a coaching vacancy in the B team.
