Donegal manager Jim McGuinness has described his ‘fantastic’ position as performance analyst at Celtic.

The Glenties man has overseen his Donegal side claim their third provincial crown in four years as they seek to re-claim the Sam Maguire trophy they won in two years ago.

His involvement at Celtic, which began as a part-time position in November 2012 and now encompasses the first-team squad, has been a hugely positive learning process he says.

“It’s been fantastic, a privilege” he told the Today with Sean O’Rourke programme on Radio One.

“Most of my work was with the development squad, but now I have more of a role with the first-team.”

McGuinness is noted for his thorough and professional approach with Donegal and says he has been very impressed by the methods of new Celtic boss Ronnie Deila since he took over from Neil Lennon in the Parkhead hotseat.

“He (Deila) is keen on the psychological side of things,” he explained.

“He is very driven by high performance and balancing that with high energy. He likes to keep his players positive and fresh.”
