CELTIC have appointed former Airdrieonians manager Eddie Wolecki Black as Women's First Team head coach.  

The 54-year-old will move to Parkhead from his current role with Motherwell Ladies next month. 

“It is a huge honour to join a club of Celtic’s stature and I look forward to doing all I can to bring success to the women’s team," he said.

"I know that Celtic has a real commitment to women’s football and in developing its team further, and this is something I really wanted to be part of, at one of the world’s great football clubs.

"Celtic is a club which strives for excellence in everything in does and it will be my objective to ensure that our women’s team maintains these high standards.

"I know the team already has some real qualities and I will be aiming to build on these and further enhance all aspects of the first-team squad. I look forward to meeting up with the players and beginning our journey.”

Black won four league titles, four League Cups and four Scottish Cups during a 14-year spell in charge of Glasgow City before taking the reins in Airdrie.

However, he suffered a stroke in March 2016 and returned to football last November to join the team at Fir Park.
