DAMIEN DUFF IS among the candidates for a coaching role with Celtic’s U20s, according to a report. 

The Irish Sun claim the ex-Ireland and Chelsea winger has held talks with the Glasgow giants about a position that has been vacant since Shaun Maloney left last September. 

Former Hoops star Maloney joined Roberto Martinez’s backroom staff with the Belgian national team.

39-year-old Duff has made no secret of his desire to pursue a career in coaching, and he is currently looking after Shamrock Rovers’ U15s team.
