Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has opened up on the ‘surreal’ experience of winning the league on Wednesday night against Dundee United.

The 56-year old secured his second trophy since taking charge with a point up at Tannadice, meaning that his side could no longer be caught in the title race.

Speaking to the Australian journalist David Davutovic, Postecoglou discussed what winning the title meant to him, achieving something he had dreamed of since he was a child.

He said: “It’s still a bit surreal, mate. I said last night (Wednesday) after the game I’ve been pretty fortunate to have a fair bit of success, but last night was hard to put into words.

“When you’ve worked so hard for something, not just in the last 12 months but the last 49 years since I can remember as a kid, I’ve dreamt of a moment like that, and it comes to you.

“I’ll enjoy the next couple of days for sure and sort of take it all in. But, ultimately, great pride in the fact we accomplished what we did.”

It has been an emotional filled few days for the Celtic support, as they get set for a title party tomorrow afternoon.

On Wednesday evening, the scenes at both Tannadice and Celtic Park show how much this title means to the support after such a disappointing campaign last season.

Despite the stuttering start and issues faced during last summer and the early stages of the campaign, this group of players have been through so many highs.

Now, though, the Celtic support is eagerly anticipating the opportunity to see Ange lifting the league trophy on Saturday.
