The awards and the accolades keep coming for Celtic Manager, Ange Postecoglou including the PFA Scotland Manager of the Year and the Scottish Football Writers Association Manager of the Year after a season which surprised us all a season which ultimately delivered a double in his first season.
Tomorrow night at Tannadice the fans celebrations will continue as the champions in waiting can officially be crowned Champions once again. There are many talking points from this season from the poor start to the impressive unbeaten run.
Away days in the highlands and in particular Tony Ralston’s late winner. At home the first half against the Rangers at Celtic Park under the lights was special and going to Ibrox needing a win and getting it will live long in the memory and go some way to banish last season’s lock down demons.
Once Ange got settled we saw the quality of player in the transfer market arriving at Paradise go from one’s for the future from Sheffield Wednesday to players ready to answer the call and step straight into the challenge that is expected when players join a club with a heartbeat as passionate as the that of the Celtic support.
When Ange arrived, expectations were not high as everybody knew the rebuild that was needed but as we go into next season the expectation will now be higher and the pressure greater.
Over the summer we will bask in the glory of being Champions Again, Season books have been ordered and in the words of our manager when he arrived “We Go Again”
