Video: Ange Postecoglou's must-watch emotional, live interview after Celtic glory

A beaming Ange Postecoglou admitted he was feeling emotional tonight after leading Celtic to Premier Sports Cup glory at Hampden.

Postecoglou has incredibly won a trophy at the Bhoys just six months into his reign, hinting that this could be a wonderful long-term spell as manager of the club.

Afterwards, live on Premier Sports, he couldn’t hide his passion – nor would we want him to. He gave a quite incredible interview summing up what Celtic means to every supporter and just why all of this matters. You can see it via this link or below.

Needless to say, like the rest of you, I am absolutely buzzing with today’s win. Not only is it a return to winning ways for Celtic, a wonderful day out for the support, a brilliant thing to witness Kyogo Furuhashi – but just wonderful to see Postecoglou achieve success so early.

He’s not had it easy since arriving in Glasgow. Some Celtic supporters didn’t know who he was, many doubted him. He’s had some unfair treatment in the media too, with his credentials constantly scrutinised despite being dealt a difficult hand.

Today solidifies his burgeoning relationship with the support as well as shuts up any sniping from rivals or strange-thinking pundits.

The challenges continue for Celtic of course. Quickly too, with three matches alone between now and the end of the year. With a derby on the horizon, there’s no time to rest for Postecoglou and the Bhoys.

However, there’s no doubt they will enjoy tonight. Taking stock of this success is a key part of the journey. These players have to feel like winners. They have to grow as a group.

If nothing else, today was valuable experience for many of them who haven’t won trophies at Celtic before. What’s next could be exciting.
