Watch: Class post-Aberdeen footage emerges as Celtic boss celebrates with standing section
Brilliant footage has emerged after Celtic secured another big 2-1 win over Aberdeen at Parkhead this afternoon.
The Hoops responded to Rangers’ 3-1 win at Livingston by showing real character and determination to see off the Pittodrie side. Goals from Jota and Callum McGregor was enough to secure the points. Lewis Ferguson netted a controversial penalty award for the Dons to equalise in the first 45.
And after Celtic racked up yet another 3 points – their 6th league win in 7 games – Postecoglou was video’d celebrating with the standing section post-match. Take a look for yourself below:
The full-time scenes are yet more evidence of Ange looking to increase his bond with an admiring Celtic support. After securing what was a crucial win for their title ambitions, the momentum at Parkhead continues to grow.
Impressively, Postecoglou is developing a level of consistency at Celtic Park that can’t be underestimated. Not when you consider the rebuild that needed to happen in the summer.
But it must continue on Thursday night when Celtic host Hearts in their next Premiership fixture.
Ange Postecoglou full of love for the Celtic supporters
These scenes are always great to see. If we’re going to win the league championship this season, we’re going to need a strong relationship/bond between the manager and supporters.
You probably have to go back to the Brendan Rodgers era to think of a similar connection fans have had with their manager. Perhaps even as far back as the invincible season.
For the truth is that Ange’s honesty has been just as important as the results he’s managed to accumulate. There’s a reason fans were willing to give him plenty of time even when results were patchy. It’s his demeanour that supporters respect.
Now, we find ourselves firmly in a title-race and with a manager we feel we can trust. Could we honestly have said the same 12 months ago? It’s an incredible turnaround, and one that is in large part down to our current boss.
Of course, only victories will keep the bond strong. Postecoglou simply can’t afford any poor results so long as we remain 4 points behind in the Premiership table. But the fact is he knows and understands that’s the case too.
Fingers crossed we continue to see some this same level of consistency in the coming weeks. Considering the schedule we have ahead of us, it’s imperative we don’t slow down.
