The Celtic fans have today proven without a shadow of a doubt that they’re ready to take the fight to Rangers again.

It’s been a day of activity for the club with regards to their squad building for next season. Leigh Griffiths has signed a new contract whilst the club has secured the signing of Sheffield Wednesday youngster Osaze Urhoghide.

However, there was another incredible update earlier on that didn’t go unnoticed. New CEO Dom McKay told fans that the club already have the highest number of season-ticket holders in the country for next term. He stated that last Friday saw the most tickets sold by the club in one day in its entire history.

Earlier this week, we stated that at least 46,000 season tickets had been sold based on the data on the club’s e-ticketing platform. Even more will have been snapped up by fans since then.

At this stage, it’s looking more and more as if the club is, incredibly, going to sell out their season ticket capacity this season.

Celtic fans ready to go to war with Rangers for the Premiership title

This is an absolutely incredible return from the supporters, and a monumental turnaround in atmosphere since three months ago.

It shows how much the fans have taken to new manager Ange Postecoglou. However, at the same time, it speaks volumes on the impression McKay has made on supporters since joining the club.

And that combination has led to a renewed sense of purpose from the support. A renewed willingness to back the club and really take the fight to Rangers next season in what’s a crucial campaign for the football club.

It means everything to us that last season becomes a one-off. That we reassert our dominance over the Ibrox club and take back our Premiership title. Several months ago, the Hoops support would’ve wanted to think of anything but what lay in store for us this season. Now, however, there’s an expectation that we make a real challenge of it next season.

The Celtic fans have shown in numbers that they’re backing the Postecoglou era. That they’re ready to put pressure on Rangers and give them a proper rival who will push them to their limit.

We’re ready to go to war as a club. Even this early on, it looks as though we’re finally all pulling in the same direction.

In other news, as we continue to back Postecoglou, it’s vital we back a key decision he made today.
