Ange Postecoglou clinches another Scottish Premiership title, he's become a Celtic legend
| Last updated
Australian manager Angel Postecoglou has clinched his second Scottish Premiership title with Celtic in two years.
The side secured the championship with a 2-0 win over a 10-man Hearts to take home the title with four games to spare.
This season could signal one of the best in the club’s history, as they are on course to win a domestic treble and could potentially surpass their own record points tally of 106 in the league.
Postecoglou said following the fixture: “I’m just really proud of this group of players and staff. They’ve maintained an absolutely ridiculous standard this year. They are relentless in their approach.
“Having success last year, you always worry as a manager – are they going to be as hungry?
“From the first day, they haven’t let up and it’s a credit to every single one of them.”
The team secured the win with goals from Kyogo Furuhasi and Oh Hyeon-gyu despite not being at their best.
It was Kyogo’s 30th goal of the season and one that would prove decisive in securing Celtic their 53rd Scottish title.
Socceroos international Aaron Mooy was also involved in helping the team to the title, providing the assist for Oh.
With the team looking to surpass 106 points by winning all of their last four games of the season, they are also looking to surpass their goals record of 116 in a league season.
They reached 105 goals with their win over Hearts.
Celtic captain Callum McGregor said: “I think we can get there.
“We are certainly on the right track but we need to keep going.
“You get over the line, you get more experience, you want to do it again and in more style. I feel like we’ve done that this season.”
Postecoglou has quickly become a popular figure on the green side of Glasgow in his two-year stint at the club.
He has attracted interest from some big names in Europe looking to acquire his services.
He has been linked with a shock move to Celtic following the departure of Graham Potter and the club looking for a permanent manager at the end of the season.
The Blues are leaning toward offering the job to former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, however, the Aussie is building a reputation as an exciting attacking coach.
It’s hard to say whether Ange would even consider the possibility of leaving Celtic at this point in his tenure.
He’s certainly garnered interest in the Premier League, however, the culture he’s built at the Scottish club has made him one of the most popular figures in football.
Celtic skipper Callum McGregor insisted that he wanted the club to keep hold of Postecoglou ‘as long as we can’.
