Ange Postecoglou has spoken for the first time since leaving Celtic for Tottenham.

The 57-year-old joined Spurs on a four-year deal earlier this week, bringing his two year spell in Glasgow to an end.

He left off the back of delivering the club's eighth treble, and five trophies out of the six available to him during his time in Scotland.

The Australian is now excited about the challenge ahead as a Premier League manager, as he delivered a message to the Spurs fans.

He said: "Hi everyone, it's great to finally get started as manager of this great football club. 

"I'm really looking forward to the task ahead. I think it's a really exciting opportunity for us to now set off in a new direction to play football and create an environment that embodies the values and traditions of this fantastic football club.

"Hopefully a team that you can all be proud of and more importantly get excited by, I can assure you that right through pre-season we won't leave any stone unturned, myself, the staff, the players, to make sure that when the league comes around you'll all be as excited as I am about the season ahead. 

"I really look forward to seeing everyone at the stadium in particular at our first home game, and I look forward to the journey ahead."
