Ange Postecoglou reveals that she has been in contact with fans of Celtic superstar Rod Stewart and a Peaky Blinders actor, as Snoop Dogg plans to meet him at the wild Scottish title celebration.

- Rod Stewart, Australian actors, musicians and fellow Australians have contacted the manager
- Celtic will celebrate their title on May 14 after playing Motherwell at home
Former Socceroos manager Ange Postecoglou says his phone has been full of messages from superstar Celtic fans after the Australian manager led the club to the 2022 Scottish Premiership.
The 56-year-old says that since he secured the title in a 1-1 draw against Dundee United on May 12, famous fans from around the world have flocked to congratulate him on the team’s triumph.
Die-hard fan Rod Stewart is pictured watching his beloved Scottish football team take on their hated rivals Glasgow Rangers at Celtic Park.
I have had all kinds. You realize that a lot of people support this football club,” Postecoglou told The daily telegraph.
‘[W]If it’s someone like Rod Stewart, [singer] Louis Capaldi, [comedian] Kevin Bridges. He had a great clip of one of the Peaky Blinders guys.
‘Pretty significant people in all areas. Eddie McGuire is a huge Celtic fan thanks to his father. I’m pretty close to Luke Beveridge, Craig Bellamy, Brian Goorjian, Neil Craig, Eddie Jones and many others.
The Scottish club has amassed a following of nine million fans and more than 200 supporter groups worldwide, with 60,000 fans packed into Celtic Park to watch their team play.
Postecoglou’s change from unknown Australian to Scottish hero in the space of 12 months even caught the attention of rapper Snoop Dogg, who promised to fly to Glasgow and celebrate with Celtic if they were crowned champions.
“My Bhoys aren’t there yet, but after their win against the Rangers, they’re close to winning the championship,” Snoop Dogg said in April.
‘[The] the passport is out of the safe… as soon as they’re champions, they better believe I’m on that flight to Glasgow.”
Stewart even visited Postecoglou at his home earlier this year, and Celtic fans also incorporated his name into Wham! song ‘Last Christmas’ in a chant that has since gone viral.
“I was horrified to hear my children sing it at Christmas,” Postecoglou said.
It’s all a bit surreal. But I think before one of the recent games there was a knock on my door and Rod Stewart came in and gave me a hug. And that shows that things change!

On May 13, Stewart posted a photo of himself in Celtic colors while out and about in Beverly Hills, with the caption: ‘The Celts are champions again! @celticfc’.
Celtic host Motherwell on May 14, hoping for a strong win to kick off a huge title celebration.
The Scottish Premiership marks the sixth title of Postecoglou’s career, 10 years after the Australian claimed his fourth and final A League championship with the Brisbane Roar.
