Watch: Ange Postecoglou addresses delighted Celtic fans at pyro party
Emotional Ange Postecoglou addressed a jubilant Celtic Park crowd as his Premiership champions were welcomed home in style.
And the Celtic boss was pictured channelling former club hero Kieran Tierney as he picked up the megaphone on a night to remember for the fans.
Postecoglou's side wrapped up the Premiership title with a 1-1 draw at Dundee United and returned to Glasgow to be greeted by a raucous gathering in the east end.
There were flares and fireworks aplenty as the Celtic squad lapped up the appreciation upon completing a domestic Double, adding the league to title to their Premier Sports Cup success back in December.
Postecoglou looked emotional as he soaked up the full-time scenes at Tannadice and he showed his appreciation by speaking to the crowd outside Celtic Park.
The Aussie was handed a megaphone in scenes reminiscent of how boyhood fan Tierney would often conduct the singalong during celebrations in seasons gone by.
Postecoglou was joined by the club's current crop of heroes to toast a title success many considered unlikely at the start of the season.
The 56-year-old was tasked with overseeing a considerable squad rebuild, the scale of which had plenty of observers quickly writing off his chances of reclaiming the title at the first time of asking.
But Postecoglou has defied his doubters and more with a title win that many fans are already ranking among their most satisfying ever, even in an era of success during which Celtic have claimed 10 of the last 11 league crowns.
He quickly struck up a rapport with supporters and that was more evident than ever as Postecoglou addressed his adoring public late on Wednesday evening.
