Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou believes that their comeback victory in the Scottish League Cup against Hibernian is the perfect start for life under him. Paul Hanlon put Hibernian ahead in the second half before a Kyogo Furuhashi brace turned the final on its head. It was a 20th League Cup win for Celtic after they went trophyless last season. Postecogou admitted that these are the reasons he became Celtic boss and hopes the team can carry on from here.
“It is [emotional]. I know the significance of it. It’s been of a hell of a ride so far and we haven’t come into this opportunity the easy way,” Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou said. “I’m just so proud of this group of players, they’ve been the most resilient group I’ve ever come across with what’s been thrown at us the last five, six months. It’s not pressured. It’s what I want. It’s why you accept this position. You don’t accept this position to shy away from creating special things.”
“We’re still at the beginning. We want to enjoy this as the players have been through an awful lot and risen to every challenge including today. We just want to keep going.” he added. “It has to be [just the start]. It’s the only measure at Celtic. You win it, and then you go on to the next one. He’s a brilliant player, a great person too,” Postecoglou said. “He was determined even on one leg to get out there today and help the boys out.”
