Celtic’s search for a new manager has finally ended with the appointment of Ange Postecoglou.
The former boss of the Australia national team has replaced Neil Lennon, who left in February, on a 12-month rolling contract.
Celtic turned to the 55-year-old after Eddie Howe rejected the chance to move to Parkhead.
Postecoglou joins from Yokohama F Marinos, where he has won the J League title. As head coach of Australia, he lifted the Asian Cup in 2015 and also managed the Socceroos at the World Cup in 2014 in Brazil and led them to qualification in 2018 in Russia.
