Ange Postecoglou set for Celtic new contract reward as Parkhead chiefs look to tie title-winning boss down long term

Celtic wants to reward the boss who wins double Ange Postecoglou with a new contract.

The Parkhead The board plans to open negotiations with their boss and his representative in the coming weeks.

The impressive Australian guided Hoops to a dream league and Premier League Sports Cup won his first season at the helm.

The Celtic The board was delighted with the progress the club had made on and off the pitch and knew that Postecoglou was at the heart of that.

The Hoops, after winning the title with a 1-1 draw against Dundee United, will go straight to the Champions League group stage and will rake in £40million in game changes in the process.

Celtic want their boss to stick around for a long time.

Postecoglou initially put pen to paper on a one-year contract when he arrived from Japanese side Yokohma F Marinos last summer.

The Celtic board want to reward him with improved terms and are also in talks to open talks on a long-term deal.

Postecoglou has won titles in Australia and Japan and now adds Scotland to that impressive list.

The 56-year-old was relatively unknown to Celtic fans when their club switched to him after the transfer for Eddie Howe collapsed.

He has rebuilt a squad that has been exhausted in their 10 consecutive games.

Postecoglou brought back the likes of Joe Hart, Carl Starfelt, Josip Juranovic, Kyogo Furuhashi, Liel Abada and Giorgos Giakoumakis, while Cameron Carter-Vickers and Jota has come to lend with options to buy.

It was a rough start as his new skins team took time to find their legs and fell off Champions League.

He kept faith in his style and it started to pay off at the park and then he strengthened his squad even further in January with the arrests of Daizen Maeda, Reo Hatate, Yosuke Ideguchi and Matt O’Riley.
