Ange Postecoglou has hailed the “incredible” Celtic support as he vowed to bring more success to the club following Sunday’s League Cup final win over Rangers.
The Hoops lifted the Viaplay Cup trophy after defeating their city rivals 2-1 thanks to a double from top scorer Kyogo Furuhashi.
Postecoglou says his attention instantly turns to St Mirren ahead of their Premiership game next Sunday, but he took the opportunity to thank fans for “driving us on to victory” as they now aim for further success.
In a late night email sent to supporters, the Australian, who has now won three out of four domestic trophies since arriving in Scotland, said: “We hope that you are enjoying your evening, celebrating another great achievement by everyone at the club. We are delighted to have secured Celtic’s 21st League Cup victory in front of so many of our supporters at Hampden and with millions more watching around the world.
“These occasions are very special and I’m so proud of the talented group of players, coaches and backroom staff who once again rose to the occasion, to deliver success for supporters such as yourself.
“Together, they put in yet another strong team performance and with your incredible support once again drove us on to victory. It’s another great achievement for this team and one that we should all celebrate together.
“Securing the first piece of domestic silverware on offer this season is really satisfying and is something we will enjoy – and of course we know there are further challenges and more hard work which lies ahead if we are to achieve our objectives.
“We’ll celebrate adding another chapter to Celtic’s illustrious history before our focus returns to the pitch and our preparations for next weekend’s match as we get back to work with one clear aim – to bring yet more success to our magnificent football club.
“On days like today and all throughout the season, your support means everything. Enjoy your evening, as we celebrate another well-earned success. Thank you once again.”
Celtic are also nine points ahead at the top of the Premiership and have a Scottish Cup quarter-final clash at Hearts to look forward with a treble now in sight.
