Watch: Damien Duff – “I’d Swim Over” To Coach At Celtic

Former Republic of Ireland player, Damien Duff, has revealed his desire to take up a coaching role with Scottish giants, Celtic as he confirmed he is in talks with the club.

The Scottish Sun reported that Duff is in line to fill the vacant position of U20s coach at the club. 

Former Scotland international, Shaun Moloney stepped down from the position to join Roberto Martinez in the Belgium set up earlier this year.

Duff is currently the manager of the Shamrocks Rover U15 side and spoke passionately on RTE Soccer about the need for improved underage setups and the move away from a ‘dinosaur’ mentality.

The 39-year-old also confirmed on the panel that he is in talks with Celtic about a possible role in the coaching staff.

“I spoke to them last week, I went over to the training ground. For me and most Irish men, it’s the biggest club in the world. There’s a role going there with the reserves and we’re still talking to them.”
