Celtic Coach Harry Kewell has received praise from those living down under as he made his World Cup commentary debut.

The former Liverpool and Leeds star has had a hectic start to life in Glasgow having been thrown in at the deep with the Hoops returning to the Champions League for the first time in five years.

Although he has previous experience of management this was a completely different task for him which he appears to be thriving in.

Ange Postecoglou wanted the club to be continually evolving and wanted to give his fellow countryman a chance after time spent at various clubs down south.

Recently Celtic forward Daizen Maeda spoke about the positive impact which Kewell was having behind the scenes at the club and how much he had helped him as a player.

The 44-year old also appears to be enjoying the task having raved about Ange Postecoglou in recent months and the standards which he demands.

Kewell returned to his homeland alongside Postecoglou for the Sydney Super Cup which was also a really proud moment for the former Champions League winner with the games being held in his hometown.

With the tournament having come to an end the Celtic coach has headed to Qatar to watch his national side and do a bit of commentating for major broadcaster SBS which has went down really well back home in Australia.

He is one of Australia’s greatest ever players and has a lot of respect which was shown by the reaction to his co-comms which saw Australia be beaten 4-1 by reigning World champions France.

Many top Australian journalist took to social media to praise the Celtic coach.

‚ÄúReally impressed with @HarryKewell commentary and breakdown of the match this morning. Absolutely spot on reading the game,” said SBS SEnior media advisor @ROBERTGRASSO.

From the plaudits he has received both at Celtic and back home the club appear to be very lucky to have someone of his quality and experience around the building.
