Celtic have tonight made a very exciting announcement with regards to the women’s football team who have just gone full time.
They have appointed a new head coach who will lead the women into the historic new season and they’ve not messed about.
The club have signed former Premier League assistant manager Fran Alonso who has worked under both Ronald Koeman and Mauricio Pochettino in his career.
Recently, Fran has been managing the Lewes FC women’s team as of late but has jumped at the opportunity to become the first full time coach of the women’s team.
Celtic have been trailing in the women’s league for some time with the big guns Glasgow City and Hibernian ladies leading the way.
This is a real opportunity for the women’s team to challenge for honours and get the support behind them. Celtic are providing significant investment to make it happen.
