Ange Postecoglou’s first words as Celtic boss as former Australia boss confirmed

Greek gaffer Ante Postecoglou has been confirmed as the new manager of Celtic, following the dismissal of Neil Lennon in February.

Celtic lost their stranglehold on the Scottish Premiership last campaign as Steven Gerrard's rejuvenated Rangers captured their first title in a decade and, in doing so, stopping Celtic from winning a tenth-in-a-row.

However, it hasn't been plain sailing to get their man, and Postecoglou, who has never managed in Europe, didn't hold a UEFA Pro License – which is mandatory for a coach.

And Postecoglou has spoken about his excitement for starting the job – ahead of the new campaign for Celtic.

"The opportunity that has been given to me is one of the greatest honours in football and the responsibility to lead our magnificent football club into the future is one that I will cherish dearly," he told the clubs website.

"Celtic is one of the names in world football, of that there is no doubt… real history, real substance, real authenticity and real soul.

"I know Celtic is a true way of life for so many people and I know the demands which come with this position.

“I will be doing everything I can to get our great Club back on top and, at the same time, deliver the kind of football which our fans appreciate. We want to entertain our fans and we want to win."

Postecoglou confirmed he already has signings in mind as Celtic look to recapture the title.
