On Tuesday, Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou was named Cinch Premiership manager of the season.

The Australian added yet another award to his ever evolving cabinet, which is growing bigger and bigger by the week.

Postecoglou will need a new mantelpiece at this rate, and his old friends in Japan have recognised his recent success.

On Twitter, the official J. League account quoted Celtic’s Tweet that confirmed Postecoglou’s winning of the award:

Postecoglou came to Celtic from Japan and will be returning to the land of the rising sun this summer.

The 57-year-old will take his team halfway across the world for a pre-season training camp where two friendlies will be played.

One has already been confirmed with the Bhoys due to take on Postecoglou’s former club, Yokohama F. Marinos.

Champions of Japan, the Marinos will provide Celtic with a stern test, but that is precisely what the manager wants in pre-season.

These standards maintain Postecoglou’s status as a top manager and ensure the Australian continues to win awards such as manager of the season.
