Osaze Urhoghide on the Postecoglou Factor: ” I see his passion and his work with young players and I feel he can help me develop into a better player”

Osaze Urhoghide bought into the Ange Postecoglou revolution at Celtic Park as he revealed that he’d been mightily impressed by the new Celtic manager when the pair spoke to discuss his transfer to the Hoops which was completed this afternoon.

“I spoke to the manager. He has a good vision for the club and the club is in a rebuilding stage. I see his passion and his work with young players and I feel he can help me develop into a better player,” Celtic’s new Bhoy told Celtic TV.

Osaze turns 21 this Sunday is clearly delighted with his early birthday present – it’s not even day you get the chance to sign for Celtic! Speaking exclusively to Celtic TV, Osaze said:

“It feels great to get it over the line. It’s been a long season making a decision where to go, and it’s good to be here at Celtic.

“To have the manager speak to you and to know he wants you is great. He told me the plans he has to get to the next level and it’s good to know the manager wants you in his plans to succeed.”

The new Bhoy, who can play in a number of defensive positions, is looking forward to pulling on the Hoops and playing at Paradise, and is hoping that will be in front of the Celtic supporters.

As for what fans can expect from the player, he said: “I’ll make a lot of big tackles in games and put in a lot of hard work. The work-rate will be there and the tackles will be there.

“It’ll be good to see the fans when they get back into the stadium. I’ve heard about the atmosphere, especially in the European games, but also in the league games. To be at a big club like Celtic is just great, and to have the fans on your side supporting you like that, I’m excited.”
