Alan Thompson has begun legal proceedings against Celtic after being dismissed as first-team coach over the weekend, but wants to reach an amicable settlement with his former employers.

On Sunday night the former Hoops midfielder instructed lawyers to act on his behalf after being told of his dismissal by manager Neil Lennon over the phone. The Scottish champions confirmed the Englishman's departure on their website in a statement which claimed Thompson, 38, failed to attend a pre-arranged meeting with the Parkhead boss in Newcastle.

A statement, released on Tuesday evening through the player's solicitors, Bridge Litigation, read: "Alan Thompson has been dismissed by Celtic Football Club after enjoying years of first-class football both as a player and first-team coach."
