GORDON STRACHAN has agreed to become technical director with Dundee, as Scotzine reported back on May 22.
The 62-year-old former Scotland and Celtic manager, who began his playing career at Dens Park in 1974, has been out of football since leaving the international post in October 2017.
An official announcement is expected by the Championship outfit early next month.
The Taysiders promoted youth coach James McPake to manager after Jim McIntyre’s sacking following their relegation where they set an all-time Premiership low by suffering TEN successive losses.
The Dark Blues are gearing up for a quickfire return to the Premiership and also released one-time Scotland and Old Firm striker Kenny Miller who rejoined ex-Celtic team-mate Gary Caldwell at promotion rivals Partick Thistle last week.
Edinburgh-born former midfielder Strachan came through the youth ranks at Dens Park and made 91 appearances before moving to Aberdeen in 1977.
As well as Scotland and Celtic, he has managed Coventry City, Southampton and Middlesbrough.
