Stevie Woods is the new first-team goalkeeping coach at Celtic.

Manager Tony Mowbray has promoted the former Motherwell and Hibernian keeper after previous coach Jim Blyth left along with Gordon Strachan last month.

"Part-time and full-time, I have been here for nearly 10 years now," the 39-year-old told the club website.

"This is a dream come true, I am absolutely delighted and I have realised an ambition of mine very, very early in my coaching career."

Artur Boruc, Lukas Zaluska, Mark Brown, Scott Fox, Daniele Giordano and Dominic Cervi are the goalkeepers currently on the books at Celtic.

New manager Mowbray said: "I know that many people within the club have been highly impressed with Stevie's work in recent seasons and we are delighted to give him this opportunity to work with the first team.

"I have spoken to Stevie at some length about his new role. I too believe he has a lot to offer and I am sure he will make a great contribution to the first team."
