Damien Duff says he is still in talks with Celtic with regards to a coaching role and admitted it would be an "amazing" opportunity to work with the Glasgow giants.
The RTÉ soccer pundit, currently Shamrock Rovers Under-15 boss, visited the Scottish club last week as Celtic look to replace a vanacncy within the coaching staff since Shaun Maloney left his position as U20 manager in September.
Duff confirmed that talks are still ongoing and said "hopefully" something will happen.
"I spoke to them last week," he told viewers. "I went over to the training ground and met everybody. It was so impressive. For me and most Irish men, they are one of the biggest clubs in the world.
"There is a role going there with the reserves. We’re still talking to them.
"I'm obsessed with learning and improving. That could be an amazing environment to do so"
"What route am I going to go down after finishing football? That’s all I know. I don’t have a school education, so I can’t go down that route.
"I’m absolutely obsessed with football, obsessed with learning and improving. That could be an amazing environment to do so."
The 39-year-old admitted he would "swim over to work there", but with a wife and two young kids to take into consideration, the decision isn’t entirely straight forward.
"When there are kids involved, it’s obviously hard and emotional thing to do…maybe I’ll have to bribe them with getting a dog," he joked. "I’m afraid of dogs, so I’ll obviously have to rent two houses over there!
"It’s an amazing club and something will hopefully happen."
