McGuinness: Donegal job won't be affected

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Jim McGuinness says his new role at Celtic will not affect his management of the Donegal footballers, emphasising there will be "no impact in terms of training."

McGuinness was yesterday unveiled by the Scottish soccer club as their new performance consultant, but Donegal GAA were quick to assure supporters in the county that their All-Ireland winning manager would be staying on as Donegal boss as well, as was the man himself.

"There will be no impact in terms of the training last year compared to this year," said McGuinness. "There will be no drop-off in terms of my attendance at training and the input to the team.

"We have been on a great journey for the past two years (with Donegal). I think the world of them (the players). It would have been very difficult to walk away. I'm thankful to Celtic for giving me the opportunity to combine the roles.

"They have been very fair to me in terms of my role with Donegal and participation in all the training sessions. That flexibility made the decision a lot easier.

He explained how he feels his role at Celtic will make him a better manager for Donegal.

"Working in a professional environment a few days a week is going to be very good for me in terms of the skills that I'll learn.

"I'm looking forward to developing my own learning while I'm doing the job (with Celtic) and hopefully bring those skills back to Donegal," said McGuinness.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon said McGuinness and he had long conversations prior to the Donegal man accepting the role. He also said that McGuinness would probably be at Celtic for two days a week, starting off.

"We had a long conversation about both sports, and sport in general, and there is stuff I can learn from him and stuff that he can learn from us, so it's a win-win situation," said Lennon.

"He will probably initially come in for two days per week and we will take it from there."
