Former Australia international Harry Kewell is set to join Celtic as a first-team coach, according to reliable journalist Anthony Joseph.
The Lowdown: Ange working his magic
Ange Postecoglou has enjoyed a fantastic first year as Hoops manager, inspiring his side to Premiership glory and also winning the Scottish League Cup.
The 56-year-old has put together a strong backroom team which has worked together in great harmony, with everyone at the club seemingly pulling in the same direction.
A new coaching appointment now looks to be on the cards, and the man involved is a familiar name to football followers in the UK.
The Latest: Kewell set to come in
Taking to Twitter late on Friday night, Sky Sports reporter Joseph informed followers of Celtic’s planned transfer activity, while also touching upon a significant proposed addition to Postecoglou’s staff.
Among his numerous updates, the journalist tweeted:
“1st team coach: Harry Kewell incoming.”
The Verdict: Shrewd appointment
This could prove to be an excellent appointment by Celtic, with Postecoglou seeing his compatriot Kewell as someone who can bring fresh ideas to the table.
The 43-year-old has already managed Crawley Town, Notts County, Oldham Athletic and Barnet, with 38 wins from 121 matches in his coaching career, so he has plenty of experience which should stand him in good stead.
Will Postecoglou sign a new deal?
Furthermore, Celtic’s players could also learn from Kewell in terms of his ability on the training pitch, given his standing as arguably Australia’s greatest player of all time, having scored 17 goals for his country and won the Champions League with Liverpool in 2005. He also starred for the Leeds team which reached the semi-finals of that competition four years previously.
In other news, Celtic are reportedly on the verge of one signing. Find out who it is here.
