Adams claims Celtic will team him up with Jansen

Celtic's search for a manager to replace Gordon Strachan took a strange twist yesterday when Tony Adams claimed he was being lined up for a partnership with the club's former manager Wim Jansen. Adams said Celtic had approached Jansen, who then insisted on bringing the former Portsmouth manager with him as part of a continental-style management team.

Weir backs Celtic strikers to fire again – after final

The Rangers defender David Weir has tipped the goal-shy Celtic duo of Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink and Georgios Samaras to find the net again soon but hopes their return to form comes after Sunday's Co-operative Insurance Cup final. Both Hoops strikers have been under fire in recent weeks but criticism has intensified following their side's Scottish Cup exit to St Mirren on Saturday, which left the pair without a goal in their last 25 games between them.

Celtic enter seven heaven but strikers still fire blanks

Towards the end of the first half, when Celtic were 2-0 up and should have been further ahead, an interruption in play allowed Gordon Strachan to have a word with Scott McDonald. "Like this," the manager appeared to be saying, thrusting his head through an imaginary ball. Teaching one of his main strikers how to convert a simple header is not what Strachan would expect to be necessary during a title run-in. Yet despite the 7-0 home win against St Mirren, it is. His forwards are firing blanks.
