Former Hull City forward Shaun Maloney is set for a shock return to Celtic as coach of their under-20 side, according to the Daily Mail .
The Bhoys are in need of a new coach after Jim McGuinness quit to join Chinese Super League club Beijing Sinobo Guoan in June.
The Parkhead club face competition from fellow Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen, but Maloney is understood to be interested in returning to the club where he started his career.
The 34-year-old is a free agent after turning down a one-year contract with relegated Hull, and was reportedly on the verge of signing a two-year-deal with Aberdeen before injury problems scuppered any prospect of an imminent move.

The Rams have been linked with moves for forwards Tom Lawrence, Jon Toral and Jota, as the side continue to scour the market for Will Hughes' and Tom Ince's replacements following their moves to Watford and Huddersfield Town respectively.
"We are working incredibly hard. We have put two very good offers in and made lots of other inquiries," Rowett told the Derby Telegraph .
"We are still on our list of number ones when it comes to targets and we want to stay on that until those players go elsewhere."

So far, Ondrej Mazuch and Michael Hector have arrived at the KCOM Stadium - but Shotton could also be on his way if he gets his wish, with Middlesbrough also interested in taking on the former Derby County man.
"He trained this morning, we had an offer from a club and I think he would like to move if he gets the opportunity," Redknapp told the Mail.
Bolton Wanderers have reportedly knocked back Millwall's attempts to re-sign defender Mark Beevers, according to the Bolton News .

Beevers played 51 times for the Whites last term, as they gained promotion from the third-tier at the first attempt and scored seven goals.
