Right, hands up, who can’t stop watching the scenes of Ange Postecoglou and his Celtic players celebrating on Sunday?

This writer has watched the Pittodrie scenes at least a dozen times, and he has plans for a few more sittings on Tuesday too.

It just felt like a big moment for the Aussie and his players.

Hopefully it plays out that way.

Ange and his players got a sample of the good times

The post-match celebrations were as much for the supporters as the players.

We have had to put up with a lot of misery in the last 18 months, with so much of it coming on the road.

This was the first time the Celtic away support had been there to see a win since early 2020.

But it also felt like a very important moment for this newly assembled squad, with the likes of Joe Hart, Jota and Liel Abada looking totally bowled over at what they were witnessing.

You can play Champions League football at high profile clubs like Manchester City and Benfica, but only a select few sides have away supports like Celtic.

These new stars got a sample of what it’s like to be a winner at Celtic, and that is hugely important.

The pressure is enormous, with virtually every domestic fixture a must win, but the joy you feel as a result can’t really be explained.

It is perhaps a little simplistic to suggest this Celtic team needed “a moment” to galvanise them, but they certainly got one on Sunday.

If they can find a way to keep winning, they’ll get an even bigger celebration come May.

One game at a time.
