ANGE POSTECOGLOU is refusing to discuss anything until after the Scottish Cup Final against Inverness Caley Thistle at Hampden a week tonight.

The Celtic boss enjoyed his side’s 5-0 romp against Aberdeen at Parkhead as he celebrated his second successive title triumph since arriving on these shores in the summer of 2021.

A first-half double from Kyogo Furuashi and two from his second-half substitute Oh Hyeon-Gyu plus a header from Carl Starfelt brought down the curtain on the Premiership campaign with the grand finale against the Championship outfit now the sole focus of the 57-year-old Greek-Australian boss.

CROWNING GLORY…Ange Postecoglou with his second Premiership title.

Speculation over Spurs, though, refused to go away even in the midst of the title celebrations and Postecoglou told Sky Sports: “I’ve been pretty straightforward, there’s nothing cryptic in my messages.

“We’ve got one game to go. I’m not talking about next year until we win next week. That’s our goal, we’ve got to win this Cup.

“I’m not going to pass up the opportunity to do something special, to win a treble. I know people have done it and greater things, but I’m not going to look past that.

“I really want us to finish strong. It’s not going to be an easy game, it’s a Cup Final.

“We’re determined to get it done.”

Postecoglou will have injury concerns over Kyogo, who has claimed 33 goals this season, and Canada World Cup right-back Alistair Johnston who both limped off after the interval against the Dons.

Liel Abada was also replaced at the start of the second-half by veteran James Forrest with the Israeli winger spotted with an ice pack on an ankle as he took his place among the stand-by squad.

So, with only a week remaining, the work continues for the manager and his players.
