Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic appointment not the reckless gamble it was once painted | Emma Kemp

The Australian’s arrival in Glasgow was greeted by some with scepticism but for others a title in his first year is hardly surprising

Some 26 years ago, back when the late Tommy Burns was manager of Celtic, a 20-something Ange Postecoglou was working as a bank teller in Melbourne’s CBD. He was in the middle of serving customers when he received a call from South Melbourne, the National Soccer League club with whom he had won titles as a player (including one under the tutelage of Ferenc Puskás) and was now assistant coach.

“They said, ‘look, you’ve got the job for the next three games just as a caretaker coach, and then we’ll make a decision for next year’,” Postecoglou told the late Shane Warne in December. “As soon as I put the phone down I quit the bank, I walked out. There was a queue of people waiting to get their money out. I said ‘that’s it, I’m just going to go for it’.”

Ange Postecoglou is the perfect fit for Celtic and now has title to prove it | Ewan Murray

Coach’s transformation of a team who had been a distant second to Rangers should lead to substantial transfer backing

Had Celtic appointed Mark Lawwell as head of recruitment 12 months ago, with Rangers in the midst of title celebrations, the cacophony from an irate supporter base would have punctured eardrums. As the son of Celtic’s former and longtime chief executive Peter Lawwell, there would have been guilt by association in the eyes of paying customers. Seeking a 10th title in succession, Celtic had not so much meekly surrendered to their city rivals as imploded.

Mark Lawwell was indeed hired by Celtic, days ago and to barely a murmur. Ange Postecoglou endorsed the choice. Postecoglou’s photograph was used in the club media story that confirmed the move. The manager’s status in the eyes of Celtic’s following is such that he could add Ally McCoist to his coaching staff and supporters would find a reason to nod in agreement. Celtic, from such a weak position at the point of Postecoglou’s arrival, are the champions of Scotland once more. Postecoglou can do no wrong.

Celtic crowned Scottish Premiership champions after draw at Dundee United

As Tony Ralston crossed for Giorgios Giakoumakis to open the scoring, Celtic’s party was in full swing. Ange Postecoglou’s side, needing just a point to secure the Scottish Premiership title, had Dundee United at arm’s length.

United’s response, via a glorious Dylan Levitt moment, created brief moments of panic in the Celtic ranks. But only that. Postecoglou made great play of the fact there are various ways to cross a finish line. Celtic’s approach was to tiptoe, this draw sufficient to leave Rangers an insurmountable challenge.
