Incoming Celtic CEO Dominic McKay and new manager Ange Postecoglou have met in London today to discuss preparations for the new season.

The club posted an image to Twitter this afternoon, revealing that the duo will attend tonight’s England v Scotland match at Wembley together.

It’ll be the first chance for Postecoglou to see a number of Celtic players perform in the flesh, adding an intriguing subplot to tonight’s massive Euro 2020 fixture.

Celtic said in a story on the official club website: “After travelling to the UK from Japan, Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has completed the required initial period of quarantine, through the UK Government Test to Release scheme in England and has been straight down to work with incoming Chief Executive Dom McKay.

“Ange and Dom met in London today to continue working on preparations for the new season.

“Ange will also watch his Celtic stars within the Scotland squad take on England at Wembley this evening.

“It is planned that Ange will be in Glasgow next week as the bulk of the first team playing squad returns for pre-season training.

“After a period of training at Lennoxtown, Ange and the squad will then travel to our training camp in Wales, from July 5 – 14.”


Officially, Postecoglou’s quarantine status and location had been unknown before now so this clears up a major mystery for the support.

Non-international players have already returned to the training centre to undergo fitness assessments.

Postecoglou has already been working behind the scenes from a hotel in London, holding meetings with club staff all week.

Celtic’s first competitive match is just over a month away on July 20th, at home to FC Midtjylland of Denmark in the UEFA Champions League second qualifying round.

Time is of the essence and the sooner he is in Glasgow the better!
