McGowan knows full well that his former manager is absolutely obsessed with football and anything that can help him improve in his role.

However, it can even go so far as to play GAMES to do with sport.

Talk to 67 hail hail, McGowan said, “I would say he’s more than obsessed.

“Even at the World Cup there were rumors that he was playing Football Manager in his bedroom because he was just in his bedroom.

“I’m sure. He’s just fully focused on everything from a football point of view. Tactics, players, everything.

“He’s obsessed with it, and it’s part of his life. That’s why he’s so successful, because of that obsession with it.

“He loves to read, he knows everything that is going on in the world and he will listen or take advice from leaders.

“CEOs of tech companies, big companies, everything, sorting out all of these best things that he says will make Celtic successful.

“He’s already shown it by winning a trophy on his first attempt, which took Steven Gerrard three years.
