Kevin Muscat could make the move to Celtic as Ange Postecoglou’s assistant, according to The Scotsman.
The Lowdown: Postecoglou edging closer to Celtic job?
The Hoops have applied for an exemption with UEFA for Postecoglou to manage in Europe and have also agreed on a compensation package with Yokohama F. Marinos for his services.
It appears as if a move is almost there, and rumours regarding Postecoglou’s backroom staff have now emerged.

The Latest: Muscat to join Postecoglou?
The Scotsman have been informed by sources in Australia that Postecoglou could look to bring Muscat with him to Celtic Park.
Muscat has previous experience of working alongside Postecoglou and has managerial experience of his own, preferring a 5-3-2 system.
The 47-year-old famously clashed with Neil Warnock and his Sheffield United side during his playing days and was also a member of Alex McLeish’s Rangers treble-winning squad of 2002-03.
Former Yokohama F. Marinos assistant Arthur Papas has also been linked with a possible Scotland switch to join Postecoglou.
The Verdict: A shrewd move?
If we forget about Muscat’s previous association with Rangers, it may well be a smart call by Postecoglou to work with the former midfielder once again.
He’ll know what Scottish Premiership football is like as well as boasting a wealth of assistant, managerial and technical director knowledge.
Muscat stepped up at Melbourne Victory after Postecoglou left for the Australia national job, winning multiple honours, so the pair may well be even stronger together this time around, should they reunite at Parkhead.
