‘It will be special’: Ange Postecoglou to bring Celtic FC to Australia


Former Socceroos coach, Ange Postecoglou, is bringing his Celtic FC side to Australia in November for a four-team tournament also likely to include Rangers, Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers.

In a statement to Celtic’s official website, Postecoglou said he’s looking forward to his homecoming and believes the trip to Australia will be beneficial to his squad ahead of the resumption of competitive football in the middle of December.

“I haven’t been home for almost three years by the time this comes around so I’m super-excited,” Postecoglou said.

“It is a homecoming in many respects. That’s where my roots are, that’s where I grew up and I know that since I’ve been in this position at Celtic, people have been following my journey, whether they know me or not, and I’ll have a great sense of pride going back to Australia as manager of Celtic.

“Just being back on home soil and bringing this great football club to my shores will be special.”

Celtic appointed Postecoglou as manager in June. The club is on top of the Scottish Premiership, a win ahead of Glasgow rivals Rangers.
