Celtic finalising deal for ex-Newcastle coach Thompson

Celtic are finalising a deal for former Newcastle United coach Alan Thompson.

The Scottish Sun says the Parkhead club hope to unveil the former Hoops midfielder, 36, as new boss Neil Lennon's No 2 later on today.

Thompson quit his reserve team position at Newcastle last week - clearing the way for his Celtic Park return.

Thommo - who hit 51 goals in 227 appearances for Hoops - enjoyed a trophy-laden Celtic career.

Signed by Martin O'Neill from Aston Villa for £2.75million, he struck a friendship with Lennon.

The new Hoops boss has wasted no time in appointing Thommo as his right-hand man.
