Joe Hart hints at Celtic stay in new role after retirement and he's already discussed it with Brendan Rodgers

Joe Hart says his story at Celtic may not be finished at the end of the season as he would be open to helping them out in a new role after he hangs up his gloves.

But he says that won't be in a coaching capacity as that path simply 'doesn't do it' for him. Veteran keeper Hart is soaking up the final days of a storied career between the sticks and he had a memorable game for the right and wrong reasons against Aberdeen at the weekend. He infamously stepped up to take the Hoops' fifth spot-kick in the shootout, but hit the post - before saving from Killian Phillips to book a spot in the Scottish Cup final.

Now 37, Hart has already announced he'll retire in the summer and the former Man City and Tottenham keeper admits he's unsure what's coming next. It won't be coaching, but he admits he's already spoken to Brendan Rodgers about lending the experience to the club in another capacity.

Speaking at An Evening With Joe Hart at Celtic Park on Sunday, he told fan media: "I've not taken any coaching badges, that was quite a conscious decision. I know that coaching and management is ingrained in a lot of people. But for me, it doesn't necessarily do it for me. I want to help, I want to give back, but there's different ways that I can do it.

"I'll always be available to Celtic if they ever need to lean on me for anything, I've made the manager and the club aware of that. But coaching a specific team? That's not something that I'm looking to do."

Hart only has six games left as a player, but when asked if he intends to go out with a bang, he added: "I'm going to try. I'm really going to leave it all on the line. That's what I've done throughout my career and sometimes it's worked, sometimes it hasn't."
