The clear message coming out of the Celtic camp is one we can all get behind
Supporting Celtic this season under Ange Postecoglou hasn’t exactly been a tranquil experience.
It’s never been dull. From losing three of our first six league matches, to not losing since, it’s been up and down from the first minute.
Supporters have wavered from satisfaction to discontent, and back again several times. It all just means so much this year.
But the Celtic players have been pretty focussed ever since that last defeat to Livingston.
They’re not going to change now either, and serenity was the key message earlier this week when I spoke to Anthony Ralston.
“As a team we’re very calm,” he said. “We know we just need to take each game as it comes.
“We’re aware (Ibrox) it’s a big game but they all are as we want to really kick on till the end of the season and get where we want to be.”
Supporters should feel as calm as the Celtic team do
Those quotes may not give a great deal away, and trust me I was a little disappointed not to get more of an insightful answer.
But that’s kind of the point. The Celtic squad isn’t thinking of anything other than Ibrox next weekend, and they’re really relaxed about it.
The support, and I include myself in this, could probably do with taking a leaf out of their book.
We should be pretty calm. Celtic have only dropped two points in 11 league matches in 2022. We are in good shape and only getting stronger with the likes of David Turnbull and Kyogo Furuhashi returning.
Celtic are calm. We should be too. As hard as that may be to put into practice.
