He also said: “Both of them have a wealth of experience at both club and international level, and that is something which can only benefit the squad, and I’m looking forward to working with both of them.” Postecoglou has repeatedly called for reinforcements after a difficult start to his Celtic tenure.

His side was knocked out of Champions League qualifying by Danish side Midtjylland and lost their Scottish Premiership opening game to Hearts. Joe Hart, who has 75 England caps, made ten appearances for Spurs last season after joining in the summer, eight of which came in the Europa League and two in the FA Cup.
