Ange Postecoglou: ‘I haven’t done anything yet’

Since his arrival in Glasgow, Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has been impressed by the consistent support he has received from the fans.

But he insists that he hasn’t done anything yet to earn their support.

After defeating Jablonec 3-0, the Australian received standing ovations from a sold-out Parkhead, and he will face Hearts in the Premier Sports Cup on Sunday.

He is excited to offer his supporters something to celebrate about.

“It was special,” he said. “To be fair, the supporters have been unbelievable since I got here.

“At the moment I feel it’s a little bit unwarranted – I haven’t done anything yet.

“The way they have embraced me, even the other night, I just felt the need to acknowledge them.

“They’ve been so supportive since I got here, but inside I feel I don’t deserve it yet.

“There’s still a long way to go and I need to achieve things at this football club, and make the supporters proud of this team.

“Hopefully when I’m done I’ll eventually walk away knowing I’ve been part of something special.”

“Winning builds the belief. That’s the kind of team we want to be – an aggressive, attacking side that scores goals.

“In the last game (Dundee) it was Kyogo and Ryan Christie who got the headlines, the other night it was David Turnbull and James Forrest, Tommy Rogic was outstanding.

“It’s good we have multiple threats. That’s the kind of thing we want to keep developing and improving.”
