Ange Postecoglou has seen his new side defeat Sheffield Wednesday and then Charlton Athletic after just a matter of weeks in charge.

The Australian will be in front of his own fans for the first time next week when Preston North End and West Ham are the visitors to Celtic Park, but first is Bristol and the conclusion of the camp in Wales.

Team news

Ange Postecoglou has been making use of his full squad in the previous matches, making wholesale changes at half-time in both games. That has seen the likes of Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor gain game-time on their return to the club after the European Championships plus youngster Owen Moffat step into the more stronger line-up against Charlton.

Karamoko Dembele also got off the mark with his first goal of the new regime after some summer speculation over the youngster’s future and Leo Hjelde has also enjoyed minutes after his loan at Ross County.

Team links

Several players have played for both clubs including Felip Benkovic, Adam Matthews, Stephen McManus and Paul Hartley and most notably Celtic cult hero Jackie Dziekanowski.
