ANGE POSTECOGLOU is deeply proud of his Australian football roots and makes sure to keep tabs and encourage Australian footballers and coaches as he blazes his own trail as Celtic manager.

After the 3-1 win against Hearts on Wednesday night, the Celtic manager approached Hearts player Garang Kuol. The former Central Coast Mariners youngster is on loan from Newcastle and is getting vital experience with Hearts in the SPFL.

The player got onto the field in the second half against Celtic after Josh Ginnelly and Yutaro Odo went off injured.

Kuol looked lively towards the end of the game but he was up against a resolute Celtic backline who had no intention of conceding another goal on the night.

Ange is a class act all around. There’s not many people who dislike the Celtic manager when they meet him. Opposition managers and players have praised the Hoops gaffer after interactions with him.

Celtic were deserved winners in the end against Hearts and the two sides will do it all again on Saturday when the bhoys head to Tynecastle in the Scottish Cup.
