Former Sunderland manager spotted at Celtic training ahead of Fir Park clash

Former Sunderland, Hibs and Dundee United boss Jack Ross has been spotted at Celtic training. The 47-year-old has been out of management since his short stint at Tannadice was ended by a 9-0 humbling by Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic. Ross has a good relationship with Brendan Rodgers, linking back to the Irishman’s first season at the club.

Now, Ross has been spotted at Lennoxtown as Rodgers prepares his team for Sunday’s must-win game against Motherwell at Fir Park.

Ross ran Rodgers’ Celtic while manager of Alloa Athletic and St Mirren in Rodgers’ first campaign. His success in Paisley caught the attention of Sunderland, who swooped to hire the Falkirk-born Ross. After appearing in the Netflix Documentary and failing twice at Wembley, Ross was eventually dismissed and he wound up at Hibs. Ross was probably unfairly dismissed by Hibernian, who struggled to replicate the form that they enjoyed under Ross. It was probably due to the fact that he led them to Hampden but was unable to get finals over the line. Notably, he left Easter Road before Celtic’s League Cup win over Hibs in December 2021.
