Former Dundee United manager Peter Houston has been recruited to join Celtic's scouting team.

Houston, who has been out of the game since leaving Dundee United in January, will work under Celtic's football development manager John Park.

He worked under Craig Levein at Tannadice, and having assumed sole control, steered United to their first trophy in 16 years when they won the Scottish Cup in 2010.

Houston began his playing career with Airdrie but made just one senior league appearance before dropping into junior football with Livingston United.

In 1979, Houston moved back into the senior game with Albion Rovers and played over 100 league matches and also enjoyed spells with Falkirk and Dumbarton.
