FORMER Ipswich Town skipper Tony Mowbray looks set to be confirmed as the new Glasgow Celtic manager today.

Mowbray, who cut his teeth as a coach under George Burley at Portman Road, has been given permission to talk to the SPL giants by his club West Bromwich Albion.

A compensation fee of �2million has been agreed between the two clubs, paving the way for Mowbray to return to Parkhead, where he served as a player.

Joining Mowbray at Celtic will be former Ipswich Town defender Mark Venus, who has been his assistant since Mowbray's Hibernian days.
