  • FORMER Celtic scout, Helena Costa, has made football history today with her appointment as manager of Clermont Foot, a club playing in the second tier of French football.

    It means she becomes the first female coach to manage a team in the men’s professional game in world football.

    Helena, who was most recently coach of the Iran women’s team, previously scouted for Celtic in Portugal and Spain, 

    The Portuguese coach will officially take up her new role at Clermont Foot at the end of the season in France.

    A spokesperson for Celtic said: “We would like to congratulate Helena sincerely on taking up this new role.   

    “She did an excellent job for us and we know she will give her new position the same high level of commitment and dedication which she gave to Celtic.”
