Roy Keane reportedly wants former Manchester United team-mate as his assistant if he takes over at Celtic.
Keane is believed to be on the short-list to be the next permanent Celtic boss following the departure of Neil Lennon earlier this season.
Reports suggest the former midfielder, who previously took charge of Sunderland and Ipswich, has already held talks with the Parkhead hierarchy.
And The Sun claim Keane could take Butt with him if he is to take charge of Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.
Butt recently left Old Trafford after nine years as coach and then head of first-team development at United.
Following his exit, he said: “Having come through the Academy myself to play almost 400 games for Manchester United, it has been an absolute privilege to come back and work with a new generation of talent making that same journey.
“I already know from my playing days how difficult it is to leave Manchester United.
"But it feels like the right moment for a new professional challenge.
"I look forward to exploring opportunities that build on the great experiences I’ve had here over the past nine years.”
Keane spent part of his playing days at Celtic and has always had an affection for the club.
On his move as a player, he said: "I wouldn’t have called it a dream but I’d always liked Celtic. And the Irish connection would have been on the back of my mind.

"I felt a bit of loyalty to them. This decision was a purely selfish one. I just wanted to play for Glasgow Celtic. Celtic is a special club.”
Celtic have struggled at times this season with fierce Glasgow rivals Rangers winning the Scottish title.
