Ronny Deila has been giving the former Donegal manager greater involvement in Celtic affairs and now a former Premier League star is singing the praises of Jim McGuinness.
Former Chelsea and Spurs keeper Carlo Cudicini is currently completing his UEFA coaching badges with the FAI and got to experience Jim McGuinness' own brand of motivation.
McGuinness was tipped by Karl Lacey for top level soccer management while Saracens boss Mark McCall said his team was "captivated" by the new Sky Sports pundit when he gave them a speech ahead of their Champions Cup semi-final defeat to Clermont Auvergne this year.
Cudicini was clearly impressed by McGuinness who gave a presentation at a FAI Pro-License course yesterday and took to Twitter to praise him.
'You're not exactly George Clooney yourself' was the first text I got as I emerged from the RTE studio last Sunday. It was from my mother. The shape of things to come. Next up, Colm O'Rourke: 'Mother Teresa, JFK, Michael Collins, the pope and Marty Morrissey. You've gone too far this time.' And so it continued all week.
