3 of Ange Postecoglou’s former clubs have sent congratulatory messages to Celtic following our 2021/22 title success this season.

Postecoglou has become the kind of Glasgow after last night’s fantastic championship win. The 1-1 draw at Tannadice secured a double for the Greek-Australian in his first full season in Scottish football. He’ll now be operating at the top level in the UEFA Champions League – the first time an Australian coach has ever managed that feat.

Ange made his name back in his homeland with the likes of South Melbourne, Melbourne Victory, and Brisbane Roar respectively. And all 3 have sent brilliant messages to the club and Ange after last night:

There has been plenty of reaction to the club’s title win since last night. Almost immediately after the game, Athletic Bilbao offered their congratulations.

There’s widespread recognition of this achievement around the world. Ange has to take huge heart from that fact. There’s an acknowledgment of how difficult the challenge was when it came to winning the league this season.

But in the end, Celtic have managed it. It’s something that will be celebrated from now until the start of pre-season as the Hoops prepare for trophy day against Motherwell.

Celtic title win earning huge praise from around the world

Having Ange Postecoglou as Celtic manager has led to a massively increased spotlight on the club in Australia. The signings of Kyogo, Daizen Maeda, Reo Hatate, and Yosuke Ideguchi has meanwhile increased our stock in Japan.

There have been a lot more eyes on Celtic this season. Undoubtedly because of the club’s business tapping into new markets. So to have won the title under that increased audience is even more satisfying and helps the club’s profile further.

The manager will simply. be soaking it in from here until mid-June when Celtic get back to pre-season action. There will be a period of reflection for him in which he’ll be able to put the feet up and simply appreciate all of the hard work he’s put in this season.

Ange will also be looking forward to his return to Australia at the end of the year with Celtic booked in for the Sydney Cup. Now, the manager is set to arrive back home as a Scottish Premiership champion and a UEFA Champions League coach.

With a bit of luck, he’s opened the door for aspiring young coaches in Australia to make the leap over to Europe. He’s proven that so long as talented coaches are given opportunities, they’ll succeed regardless of where they’re from.

But this is only stage one. Goodness knows how good Celtic can be come the end of this project under Ange. It’s certainly a hugely-exciting journey.
