Ange Postecoglou hopes to reward Celtic fans with title win

Ange Postecoglou wants to give Celtic fans a "special night" as they look to secure the Scottish Premiership title.

The Bhoys will regain the crown if they avoid defeat to Dundee United on Wednesday (11.05.22) and the coach hopes to bring joy to the supporters following a tough 2021 that saw them kept out of stadiums and losing the title to fierce rivals Rangers.

He said: "We are under no illusions, tomorrow we have an opportunity to make it a special night for the football club and our supporters. I am sure they will enjoy it.

"After last season's disappointments, not just the fact that we obviously didn't have success as a football club, they weren't able to feel part of it, they couldn't contribute as they weren't allowed in the stadiums [due to pandemic restrictions].

"This year, everyone has put in maximum effort including our supporters.

"Everything they had pent up from last year they have released this year in a positive way and I am sure everyone is looking forward to the last two games."

Celtic are unbeaten in their last 30 league matches but Postecoglou isn't worried about the statistic.

The Australian coach said: "What we have done this season is chip away.

"Every week is important, we have taken every game with the same preparation and intent, equal respect for every opponent, home and away, and not looked beyond that.

"That has served us really well to be in the position we are.

"Thirty games ago, we were a fair way behind in terms of looking like a team who could end up being champions and so 30 games later, we have taken an approach that has got us to his point and if we start thinking about, 'Let's extend it to 31 or 32' - that has never been our goal."
