Celtic captain Callum McGregor has hailed Anton McElhone’s impact at Parkhead, Celts Are Here report.
The Lowdown: McElhone’s arrival
Celtic have never officially confirmed McElhone’s arrival, so some might not even know he was at Parkhead, however, Postecoglou’s first backroom staff signing appears to be settling in nicely.

The Latest: McGregor’s comments
This is what he had to say in reply, with the Hoops regular labelling the head of sports science as ‘a great personality’.
“It was a position that we were looking for throughout the summer in terms of trying to recruit the best type of people that we could get in the building with good knowledge.
“Anton’s certainly got that. He’s been at Spurs – worked in America – and he’s come in and been a great personality. He’s just helping the good work that’s been done as well.
“There are a lot of good guys in the building that are desperate to do well and get the boys fit and hungry on the pitch.
“Anton’s certainly come in and helped on top of that with the ideas that he’s brought from Tottenham and America.”
The Verdict: Good signs
McGregor has clearly been impressed by what McElhone has brought to Lennoxtown, and results have also been on the up in recent weeks.
The Hoops are unbeaten in six domestic games, winning their last four, and hopefully, things will only get better under Postecoglou and McElhone in the background.
There seems to be a feel-good factor at Celtic Park at this moment in time, which may have a lot to do with the work the likes of McElhone and others are putting in.
