How to watch Celtic Europa League qualifier, Old Firm Derby: Ange Postecoglou revolution
Doubters have become believers. Voiced concerns have been replaced by songs of worship. The man from Melbourne might be leading the Scottish giants back to the promised land.
They say a week is a long time in football, but what former Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou has done in the six weeks since he was appointed Celtic manager is incredible.

However the next four days will be the true test to see how far Postecoglou's under-resourced team has come and will set the tone for the rest of the season.
First up is the second leg of the Europa League play-off against Dutch side AZ Alkmaar on Friday morning – which you can watch live and exclusive on Stan from 4:05am (AEST).
Celtic hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg in Glasgow but will have to travel to the Netherlands to secure their passage to the Europa League group stage. As long as they don't lose by two goals or more they will receive a minimum of $5.9million (AUD) in prize money for qualifying for the Europa League group stage.
In that group stage Celtic could potentially be up against big name opponents like England's Leicester City and West Ham United, Spain's Real Sociedad and Real Betis, Italy's Napoli and Lazio.
Postecoglou has always relished testing himself against the best and success on Friday morning would lead him to face off against some iconic teams in historical stadiums.
