Celtic hires Postecoglou

Celtic has appointed former Australia coach Ange Postecoglou as its new manager on a 12-month rolling contract following the exit of Neil Lennon in February, the Scottish Premiership club announced yesterday. Postecoglou joins the Glasgow club from Japanese side Yokohama F Marinos, who he led to the J-League title in 2019. The 55-year-old won successive A-League titles with Brisbane Roar and spent a season at Melbourne victory before becoming Australia coach in 2013. Greece-born Postecoglou guided Australia to its maiden Asian Cup triumph in 2015 and was at the helm as it qualified for the 2014 and 2018 World Cups. Postecoglou will be tasked with leading Celtic back to the Premiership summit after the club missed out on a record 10th consecutive title and finished 25 points behind bitter rivals Rangers.
