Some changes are expected to take place at Celtic over the coming weeks. Most of them will be in the squad, with hopefully several signings being made and some players departing as well. But it looks like there is going to be a change in the dugout as well, as one of Brendan Rodgers' backroom team is on the way out.

There has been a ton of speculation about Harry Kewell's future at Celtic Park in recent weeks. Rumours had gone a bit cold lately but now, it looks like the exit is inevitable.

As reported by The Scottish Sun, Kewell has agreed a deal to become the new Yokohama F. Marinos manager. The Australian coach is not expected to have any role in the upcoming Glasgow Derby.

Of course, this is not Kewell's first managerial job. He has managed managed clubs like Crawley Town, Barnet, Oldham Athletic and Notts County in the past. But this quite certainly is the most high-profile role that the Australian coach has had so far.

Kewell has earned a lot of plaudits for the job that he has done as a coach at Celtic. He arrived while Ange Postecoglou was manager of the club and has continued on with Rodgers in the Parkhead hot seat.

Celtic are not expected to bring in a replacement for Kewell immediately and Rodgers looks set to continue with the backroom team that he has in place, at least in the short-term. Let's see if they bring in a new coach in the future.

It is not hard to see why Kewell might have decided to leave Celtic to take on the Yokohama F. Marinos job. They have been one of the most successful clubs in Japan in recent times.
