Celtic hero Scott Brown has praised Ange Postecoglou's recruitment at Celtic, calling it "exceptional".

The former Hoops captain, who is currently in charge of English League One side Fleetwood Town, feels the Australian deserves plenty of praise for how he has performed in the transfer market.

Brown in particular highlighted how the 57-year-old has used his knowledge of the J1 League to bring in player such as Kyogo Furuhashi, Reo Hatate and Daizen Maeda.

He said: "His recruitment has been exceptional. There’s been a lot of British people coming to the club from England as well.

"But he’s got great recruitment. I know he was over in Japan for a time and he would have seen and understood what they are like.

"You can see how well the players that have come over and bought into his understanding of the way he wants to play football and the way the club is as well.”

Brown is currently promoting an evening at the OVO Hydro with former team-mate Mikael Lustig.

Celtic are advertising the event, which takes place on Thursday May 18, as a proper goodbye for the Hoops hero after he played his final season at Parkhead behind closed doors.

All proceeds from the event will got to the Celtic FC Foundation.

Tony Hamilton, chief executive of the Foundation said: “This is set to be an outstanding event, centred around two magnificent characters in our Club’s history in Scott Brown and Mikael Lustig – and I’m excited to see more special guests announced as we approach May 18.

"We are exceptionally grateful to Shaun Ennis, Scott and Mikael for this phenomenal gesture of support to Celtic FC Foundation and it will make a substantial impact on our work as we continue to challenge poverty and promote inclusion, against a cost of living crisis backdrop. Thanks also to every supporter who joins us on the night for what is sure to be a fantastic occasion that will live long in the memory."
