New Celtic coach Gavin Strachan has been waxing lyrical about why coming to Parkhead was the right move for him.

The former Peterborough assistant manager had a taste of the club when his dad Gordon was in charge, and told the Daily Record about the atmospheres he experienced then.

He said: “The game against Manchester United when the Nakamura free-kick went in; the atmosphere that night was just something you can’t describe to anyone who wasn’t here that night. It was just incredible.

“The lure of being part of nights like that in the future is so strong. The buzz and thought of being part of that is so exciting.

“Celtic is different with the scale of the club and everything that goes with it with the fan base. Knowing a bit about the club anyway, for a coach and a career opportunity, it was just something I couldn’t turn down.”

Strachan is clearly elated to be at Celtic, enthused by his experiences of the club when his dad was manager.

He looks all set to bring that passion to the club as the Bhoys go in search of a tenth straight title.

It’s important that coaching teams are regularly freshened up to add new ideas which prevent successful sides going stale.

He’s clearly ready to do his bit and hopes to experience nights like that 1-0 victory over United whenever it is safe for the Champions League to kick off next season.
