Three former Celts begin UEFA Pro Licence journey

Former Celtic trio Scott Brown, Charlie Mulgrew and Jonny Hayes have taken a step towards obtaining their UEFA Pro Licence after undertaking the introductory meet-up with the SFA. The SFA Coach Education Department have helped to produce numerous top coaches and managers over the years and the trio will be hoping to make their mark on the other side of the game.

Broony is, of course, manager at Championship side Ayr United after over a year with Fleetwood Town in the EFL. The former Celtic skipper will be keen to hone his craft and show that he can one day become the top man at Celtic Park.

Hayes and Mulgrew, meanwhile, are both said to be in contention for roles at Celtic. The pair were interviewed for roles within the club’s U18s as Brendan Rodgers looks to bring in two exciting coaches that know how he works.

Greig Paterson, Head of Coach Education and Development, Scottish FA: “It’s hugely exciting for us to be able to welcome a new group of students onto the UEFA Pro-Licence alongside the current cohort who are nearing the midpoint of their course.

“There have been a significant number of coaches who had expressed an interest in completing the award and we are delighted we were able to confirm another course to accommodate.

“It’s exciting to embark on this journey with this group over the next two years as they progress in their coaching careers with us.

“To be able to welcome such a strong and diverse group, so quickly after launching our most recent Pro-Licence course, is a reflection not only on the strength and depth of personnel involved in the Scottish game but also the success of our own Coach Education pathway.”
