Ange Postecoglou has been hailed as perhaps the best signing in world football after his Celtic side beat Dundee United 9-0 to continue the stellar form that saw them win the Scottish Premiership in his first season in charge.
The victory was Celtic’s biggest away win in the club’s 134-year history and marked a 37-game unbeaten streak for the Australian manager.
Celtic are top of the Scottish Premier League ladder with 15 points from five games, scoring 21 goals and conceding just one.

Praise for Postecoglou and the wonders he has done for the Scottish club has multiplied, but a former Hoops star felt the Aussie could be “slightly disappointed” with the 9-0 result.
European football executive Jordan Gardner took to Twitter to announce: “I’m not sure there’s been a better coaching hire in world football recently than ange postecoglou at celtic.”
Ramon Vega, who spent a season with Celtic, believes bringing the Australian to Glasgow was exactly what the club needed.
“This manager of Ange Postecoglou at @CelticFC is for sure one of the best things the Club has done in a long time,” Vega remarked on Twitter.
“I thought Celtic were going to do better than Liverpool on Saturday and go 10-0,” wrote Daily Mail columnist and former Celtic star Kris Commons.
“When Brendan Rodgers arrived at Celtic I vividly remember him telling us he wanted to beat a team 10-0. Celtic led 9-0 yesterday and there were still 10 minutes left to make it 10-0.
“Deep down, Ange Postecoglou will probably be a bit disappointed that they didn’t quite get there.”
The Aussie manager has won A-League and J-League titles. The win over Dundee was the biggest away win in the club’s 134-year history
After the game against Dundee, Postecoglou explained why his men didn’t give in and kept pushing for goals until the final whistle.
“It’s a matter of intention and we don’t want to be led by the scoreboard or whatever the circumstances of the match are,” Postecoglou said.
“Whether it’s the first minute or the last minute, whether we win or not, we want to play at a certain pace and with a certain intensity.”
“It’s not just about winning a game of football, it’s about setting our own standards within it.”

The performance was just another demonstration of how Celtic are adapting to the Australian manager’s style, which has seen him win A-League and J-League titles.
Postecoglou’s critics are long gone and the list of fans is growing.
Next weekend, Celtic take on their old foes and biggest rivals for the Scottish title Rangers in the first Old Firm contest of the season at Parkhead.
