Adams: I'd be Hoops boss under Wim

The former England defender has been out of the game since leaving the Pompey manager's chair in February. But he now claims he could be heading for Parkhead - if his "good friend" Jansen, a former Celtic boss, returns to the Bhoys as technical director. He said: "Wim Jansen is probably in at Celtic. It would be him as technical director and me as manager. "By saying manager, it is kind of a head coach's position really because once you have a technical director like you have in Europe, they help you with recruitment. "They do the 'nuts and bolts', the travel arrangements, the hotels, and all that kind of stuff. "As long as you have the final say of who comes in and out, these people are your help in the boardroom. I never had that at Portsmouth. "It works for me and Celtic is an unbelievable club, you have a 50% chance of winning something up there." He added: "I've not applied for the role. I know Wim Jansen, who has put me in there. "I think they approached him and I know Wim from my Feyenoord days and he's actually said that he would only do the role if I were to be made manager. That's Wim's opinion, not Celtic's."
