He came, he saw, he changed it, he brought in quality players, released, or sold those who didn’t want to be at Celtic Park. He made Dad jumpers popular again, he picked up awards along the way, won the league cup and into Europe after Christmas and now he has guided Celtic to the league title. Ange Postecoglou take a bow.
On Saturday at full time the fans inside Celtic Park stood and applauded the Champions elect after coming from 1-0 down to win 4-1 and put on a second half show for everyone to enjoy. Celtic’s 20 plus goal difference will see Celtic over the line with 2 games to go they sit 6 points clear of nearest rivals the Rangers.
Outside the stadium young fans waited to see the managers and his players and they were not disappointed when they all took time out to sign autographs and pose for pictures. These are days that the young fans will cherish for years to come.
In building such a strong squad and with very few injuries Ange can make like for like substitutions and now all our thoughts turn to Tannadice on Wednesday night. The party got started Saturday when the final whistle blew, and it will continue as supporters’ bus’s role out of Glasgow on route to Dundee for our final away day of the season.
Saturday will see the trophy coming home and it will go back into the cabinet that housed it for almost a decade before its loan spell across the city. Once the celebrations are done, Ange’s attention will turn to strengthening the team for next season and the Champions League when we will once again dine at the top table of European football.
