 A MESSAGE FROM THE MANAGER 

This is another wonderful day for our football club, champions of Scotland again, and I know this achievement will be celebrated by Celtic supporters all over the world.

Crowned as back-to-back Scottish Premiership winners – it sounds good doesn’t it!

These are the moments I wanted to bring to you, moments when we celebrate all that is great about Celtic, when we see all our hard work deliver the success it deserves.

And our success is the culmination of an enormous amount of hard work put in every single day by everyone at the club – the players, coaching staff and all of our colleagues who work at Lennoxtown and Celtic Park.

Everything we do here is for our supporters, to give you a team to be proud of and to play a style of football that you will enjoy watching, and the incredible backing that we’ve received throughout the season has been invaluable. This league triumph is a reward for all of us who love this unique club of ours.

It has been another successful season for the club in winning both the League Cup and now the Premiership title, and we hope that we can enjoy further success together in a few weeks’ time when we compete in the Scottish Cup final.

That’s an occasion everyone is looking forward to, and when it comes around, the players will show the same level of focus and determination in preparing for that match. Before then, of course, we have four more league games to complete, including two at Celtic Park, and I’m sure the atmosphere will be fantastic at Paradise when we come together to celebrate what the players have achieved.

Every player has played their part in this campaign, whether in our attacking or defensive play and that is the key to anything we achieve. Football is a team game and only a team, united, can ultimately deliver success. Now we can look forward with confidence to the challenges that lie ahead.

One of the rewards for winning the Premiership is qualification to the group stages of the UEFA Champions League. Everyone in football knows how special European nights at Celtic Park are, and we will welcome some of Europe’s top teams and best players to our stadium knowing that, with 60,000 supporters behind us, we can compete with the very best.

Our strength is our unity with you, our supporters. We know that the atmosphere you create at Celtic Park is second to none and please never underestimate how important this is. When we’re all in together, we know we can achieve great things.

Enjoy celebrating this title success because it’s something we’ve all worked hard for and these are the moments we should all savour.

Life for many people is often challenging and in current times even more so. I’ve always said though that the true joy of occasions like today, even for a short time, can lift people in such a positive way. That really is something special for me.

I am immensely proud of this team and we thank you for all you have given us this year. Enjoy today with your families and your loved ones and celebrate all that is great about Celtic. You deserve it!

Ange Postecoglou
