AMAZING. Unprecedented. Extraordinary. Superlatives just keep on attaching themselves to Jim McGuinness.
The news this week is that he's to join Glasgow Celtic as a performance consultant, working two days a week with some of the club's up and coming stars, for a reported €150,000 a year. All we have to say about that is fair dues. Well done. We hope you make a success of it.
To all those who have criticised us GAA hacks for talking up the "professionalism" of the modern game as mere hyperbole then this is the best riposte possible.
The big question now is how will he manage to combine his new role with his role as Donegal manager. Can it work? Will he be able to give the 100% commitment he demands of his players?
