Martin O'Neill, the Celtic manager, is confident that John Robertson will be alongside him at Parkhead within the next couple of days.

Robertson yesterday left his post as assistant manager at Leicester City by mutual consent and is expected to take up a similar post in Glasgow. O'Neill and the coach Steve Walford left Filbert Street for Celtic during the summer and it now looks certain that Robertson will be joining them. Robertson could even be in the dug-out in time for Sunday's first Old Firm game.

It had been expected that the former Nottingham Forest winger would quit Leicester earlier, but discussions between the club and the Scottish Premier League club had become protracted. However, it appears a solution has been reached and Robertson has been released from his contract after four years with the Midlands club.

"The employment of assistant manager, John Robertson, with the club has been brought to an end today by mutual consent," said a statement issued on behalf of Leicester City.

"The club would like to express thanks to John for his contribution to the success that the club has enjoyed over the last few years."
