    CELTIC Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Gavin Strachan as its new First Team Coach, with immediate effect.

    Gavin takes up the position at Celtic having been Assistant Manager to Darren Ferguson at Peterborough United. With great experience across English and Scottish Football, Gavin is delighted to be joining Scotland’s 9 in-a-row Champions.

    He said: “It is a huge honour to be appointed to this position with Celtic, such a giant of a Club and a real iconic footballing institution - this really is an opportunity I could simply not turn down. I am hugely excited about getting started with Neil, John and the players as we get ready for the challenges ahead.

    “Neil and John have been massive figures in the Club’s 9 in-a-row journey and it will be fantastic to be part of such a great Management and Coaching Team. The Club has had a phenomenal run of success in recent years and I know everyone at Celtic and our supporters will be doing all we can, together, to keep this run going.

    “I know we are looking ahead to a really exciting season and for me personally, it is a great time to join this brilliant club. I will work my hardest every day to bring success to the Club.”

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon added: “We are delighted to bring Gavin to Celtic, he is a brilliant appointment for us and someone I know will work really well with myself, John Kennedy, the players and the rest of our backroom team.

    “We had a number of options for the role but Gavin was the outstanding candidate. He is a really talented, experienced, hard working and respected coach and I know he has the right qualities to make a great contribution to the Club. We are all really pleased to welcome Gavin to our team.”

    Wanted a bigger name/pedigree but we clearly wanted him in so hopefully it's a good move and he adds a lot..

    The good thing is we've acted pretty quickly and got someone in..

    Seems highly rated and probably been recommended by John Kennedy who done a coaching course alongside him.

    His knowledge of the English lower leagues could be crucial for scouting.

    Looks more like a sober Shane McGowan than his actual da.

    100% agree. Actually like wee Strachan, did amazing with not very much, but gets it tight off some strangely. He was also honest, his farewell speech was outstanding, saying he’d never been a Celtic fan in his life but was now. Unlike some other fake tanned * who spun a lot of *
