Ange Postecoglou was today announced as the manager of Celtic after a lengthy pursuit for a permanent successor to Neil Lennon. The 55-year-old Australian will travel to Glasgow where he will hopefully be able to visit Lennoxtown prior to pre-season training beginning in Wales.
The former Australian National Team coach told PLZ Soccer that he thinks the game should be played in a certain way and that he wants to put teams out that fans would like to watch.

Ange also admits that he had posters of Celtic legend Kenny Dalglish on his wall as a child. The striker, who played for Scotland and Liverpool as well, was one of attacking players that the new Celtic manager looked up to in his youth and wanted to attract as he became a manager.
The former Brisbane Roar and Yokohama F Marinos boss arrives with a huge task on his hands. Hopefully he will be able to answer the critics and hit the ground running.
