Celtic manager Ronnie Delia has admitted Jim McGuinness is a massive part of his management staff, as he strives to take Celtic to the next level.
Norwegian, Delia has received widespread criticism from sections of the Celtic support following a mixed start to life as Celtic manager.
One member of his back-room staff that Delia leans on for support is former Donegal manager Jim McGuinness, Delia has admitted that he is a ‘massive’ part of his management set-up.
Delia said, “I want a team with different qualities, Jim’s very good with team spirit and psychology.
“He knows what team work is, and knows sport, and understands the importance of a good team dynamic.
“He knows the importance of a good dressing room, he has skills we can use.
“Those skills are vital in ensuring my players are focused and ready for every game and every challenge.
McGuinness quit as Donegal manager a fortnight after losing the All-Ireland to Kerry.
He spent four incredible years in charge of Donegal, and is the county’s most successful manager ever.
His successor has still not been appointed, but it’s expected that his former assistant Rory Gallagher will get the job.
