Now that the news has been confirmed that Ange Postecoglou has joined Tottenham Hotspur, there are likely to be many disappointed players in the Celtic dressing room.

The majority of the Celtic first team was recruited by Postecoglou so it is only natural that there will be widespread disappointment surrounding his Celtic exit.

But Celtic captain, Callum McGregor has said that whilst the players all wish Ange the best for his future, he has vowed that the team will be united behind whoever the club decides to bring in to replace the former Celtic gaffer.

McGregor said [Celtic FC], “It has been great to work with the gaffer over the past two seasons and to achieve the success that we have, especially achieving yet another Treble at the weekend.

“In fact, to win five out of six domestic trophies is a tremendous achievement and that is testament to the real focus and relentlessness of the manager, the players and our whole backroom team who have all worked so hard.

“I thank all our supporters again for what they have given us this year. The scenes at Hampden and Celtic Park, when we celebrated our success together will stay with me forever.

“We have delivered something very special to our fans and done it, under the manager’s direction by playing an exciting and attractive brand of football. As all the players do, I wish Ange great success in his next challenge.

“We move on ourselves to our own challenges too. Our performances this season mean we will take our place deservedly in the Champions League and we can’t wait for it.

“It will be brilliant to have these great nights back at Celtic Park and I am sure our fans are looking forward to experiencing this again, as well as watching us striving to defend all our domestic titles.

“The players will enjoy a well-earned break and when we return we will get right behind the new manager, we will be united and, as ever, will do all we can to bring our fans continued success.”

Whilst the fans will be disappointed that Postecoglou has left the club, some big names have already been linked to replace him. Graham Potter and Enzo Maresca are the latest names to join the likes of David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers.

But whoever Celtic decides to go with, we hope it’s with a manager who can continue or bring his own brand of attacking football that we have all come to expect over the last two seasons.

As this chapter of Celtic’s history closes, a new manager will now get the opportunity to write his own. But for now, the supporters can look forward to another exciting few days in which we will learn who will take over the Parkhead managerial hot seat.
