CELTIC will bring down the curtain on the 2022/23 league crusade with a sprinkling of magic.
That’s the aim of perfectionist Ange Postecoglou who insists there will be no slacking in the remaining seven Premiership encounters as the club roar towards their second successive title.
The Hoops require only three wins from their remaining seven outings to make certain the flag will be flying in the east end of Glasgow for the eleventh time in 12 years.
A BIG HAND…Ange Postecoglou acknowledges the Celtic fans after the derby win at the weekend.
The 57-year-old Greek-Australian gaffer is demanding the team stage a grand finale in the pursuit of the crown and the fans will enjoy a crescendo to the conclusion of his second campaign in charge.
Asked if his team will now coast from now until the season’s final whistle, Postecoglou, speaking to the Daily Record, answered: “Why should we?
“I mean, there are seven games to go, so why would we want to waste any one of them?
“Every game is an opportunity to create some magic and create some moments for our supporters and also the players themselves. We’re not going to waste a day of it, mate.
“Not until the season is finished. In terms of the league, when we get handed the trophy then we’ll celebrate.
“But up until that point we’re just going to keep our heads down and keep going.”
Next up is Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Sunday and that will be followed by the visit of Motherwell to Parkhead a week on Saturday.
The Hoops will discover their next five opponents when the schedule is announced after the break.
