Chris Sutton has hailed Ange Postecoglou, Callum McGregor and Celtic for not getting too carried away in the wake of Wednesday night’s victory over Rangers.

After two years without a derby win, there was a lot of emotion and joy on display in the stands at Celtic Park. There were incredible scenes in the first half and after the final whistle in particular.

However, Sutton spied a brilliant bit of captaincy from McGregor in the aftermath. The midfielder was making sure that all of his teammates were not getting carried away with the moment, knowing nothing has been won yet.

Callum McGregor shows superb Celtic leadership

Writing in his Daily Record column today, the former Bhoys striker said: “I noticed Callum McGregor also going around the park during those immediate moments after the game when Celtic were thanking the fans for their support.

“He was making sure no one was going overboard with celebrations. McGregor knows what it needed at the club and was driving home the point that one win isn’t enough.

“Remember what happened when Steven Gerrard and his Rangers players were bouncing around like the title was won after winning one game at Celtic Park? That is the perfect proof of why everyone inside the home team had to stay on point.

“Postecoglou knows it. He knows people had his team written off back in the early weeks of the season and that has been proven nonsense. Now he’ll know it’s just as nonsensical for anyone inside the camp to think the hard work is done.”

Celtic have difficult tasks ahead

Tomorrow’s match against Motherwell is just the first of many difficult tests ahead in February. Aberdeen at Pittodrie comes quickly after while there are European games on the horizon too.

The only thing Celtic have achieved so far this season is the League Cup. There’s lots more on offer.

That’s why McGregor doesn’t want his team taking victory laps, even if they have every right to soak in wins like the one on Wednesday night.
