Former Doncaster Rovers coach lands job with Scottish giants Celtic
Former Doncaster Rovers assistant manager Gavin Strachan has been named first team coach of Scottish giants Celtic.
Strachan, who worked under Darren Ferguson at the Keepmoat, will work as part of Neil Lennon’s coaching staff at the club where his father Gordon Strachan won three Scottish Premier League titles as a manager.
The highly-respected 41-year-old has left his position as Ferguson’s assistant at Peterborough United to take up the role.
“It is a huge honour to be appointed to this position with Celtic, such a giant of a club and a real iconic footballing institution,” Strachan said.
“This really is an opportunity I could simply not turn down.”
Strachan joined Rovers in October 2015 alongside Ferguson. He remained at the club until the summer of 2018, when Ferguson quit. Strachan oversaw the return to pre-season training after Ferguson’s departure, until the appointment of Grant McCann.
