Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has admitted that he’s “lost for words” after tonight’s incredible title triumph.

The Hoops have won back their Premiership crown thanks to this evening’s 1-1 draw against Dundee United at Tannadice. The result has led to incredible post-match celebrations kicking in as fans kickstart their title party.

And Ange, who’s normally so reserved and calm when faced with media duties, was clearly emotional as he was interviewed by Sky post-match. Here’s a look at the video below:

The Celtic boss states that tonight’s success is for the staff and the supporters. Once again, the class of the man outshined everything else as he refused to allow the spotlight to be placed on himself.

But Ange is a Celtic title-winning manager and nothing he can do to move the spotlight will change that. He’s won the championship through his own squad-building abilities and has been exactly the leader Celtic needed after last season.

It’s clear how much tonight means to him on a personal level. He managed to just about hold back the tears in the interview above, but don’t expect that to last the full night.

Ange Postecoglou interview captures the emotion of tonight’s Celtic title success

It’s so strange to see Ange be flustered by any achievement. Even when he won the Premier Sports Cup back in December he looked a lot more in control. It’s great for supporters to see this kind of emotion from the Celtic manager, however.

Nothing shows you how much it means to him more than this kind of raw reaction. Even still he tries to keep his calm persona, but you can see how much pride and joy is itching to burst out of him.

It must’ve been an extremely difficult year for Ange all round. Yes, there will have been pride and elation at getting the job in the first place. But the amount of work that’s had to go into this campaign and the building of the squad has been enormous.

Not to mention he was constantly criticised when he first came through the door. It can’t have been easy having so many people dismiss the years of work and success you’ve had in your profession. The level of satisfaction he must have in shutting them all up must be unimaginable.

Ange won’t be the only Celtic-minded individual getting emotional tonight of course. There will be more than a few shedding a tear at this triumph.

And as amazing as it is to see us back champions of Scotland once more, you can’t help but feel delighted for Ange as an individual too. An incredible night for the football club.
