Jim McGuinness took his place on the bench alongside Celtic manager Ronnie Delia for Celtic’s 5-0 victory over Ross County earlier this afternoon.
His presence on the bench signifies the central role he’s now having with the first-team at Celtic Park.
One of Delia’s first moves as manager of Celtic was to promote McGuinness from working with the club’s youth set-up into the first-team.
However, today was the first time McGuinness took his place on the bench alongside Delia.
Celtic have been struggling of late, and lost 1-0 to Hamilton Academical last weekend.
Manager Ronnie Delia has come under scrutiny from the Celtic faithful due to a succession of bad results.
However, with Jimmy on board today, Celtic were back winning matches as they thrashed Ross County 5-0.
McGuinness stepped down as Donegal manager a fortnight ago after four glorious years at the helm.
He hasn’t given an interview since his departure, but it’s believed he stepped down because of his promotion with the first-team at Celtic Park.
McGuinness will give his first interview tonight, when he appears on RTE’s The Saturday Night Show, and is expected to reveal why he walked away from the Donegal job.Tags:
