Huge for Australia if this happens.

Good enough record in Australia and Japan, interested to see how it translates with Celtic

Amazing news for Ange and Australia… heard his interview. Hopefully does us all proud. What he will bring is his philosophy and he won’t change that for anyone…hopefully gets off to a good start and fans and board back him.

With about five weeks before their season starts, within arguably some of their most important games all season in the Champions League qualifiers, it's not as if he even has a squad to choose from for that game. Quite a number of their players have been playing non-stop since last August, and are still away now for Euro 2020. And that's before you get to the players who are more than likely going to leave this summer.

 Édouard and Ajer are almost certainly away and seem likely to be heading south to the EPL. Ntcham and Christie are both going into the final year of their contracts, with Ntcham already spending the second half of last season on loan at Marseille. So would expect them to be required to be sold. Bolingoli, unless a dramatic u-turn, is almost certainly not wanted at the club. 

Jack Hendry didn't seem like he had a future at Celtic but seemed to have impressed people during his loan move to Belgium last season. And with Celtic short of almost any centre backs, they might have to rely on him this season. This just reinforces how bad a decision it was to bring in Shane Duffy last season, instead of a younger long term solution.

Not sure what the plans for Nir Bitton and Tom Rogic are, as they both seemed completely out of favour last season. Rogic, having played for Postecoglou before, might be revived a little but David Turnbull would probably still be the favourite for an attacking midfield role. And who knows how much Leigh Griffiths can be relied on. Seemed to be some suggestion that he may follow Scott Brown out of the club, but is still there for now.

As it stands right now, they have some gaping holes to fill in their squad. I'm not even sure they have a right-back other than Anthony Ralston, who is Championship standard at best.
