Despite securing the Scottish Premiership title, Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou remains adamant his Celtic team will not ease up in their ambitions.

The team still have records that they can achieve this season and still have a Scottish Cup to win. Taking their foot off the pedal, as Ange Postecoglou said, would be criminal.

The team travel to Ibrox to take on The Rangers and still have the Scottish Cup final to come in June. 

Postecoglou believes the title win last weekend at Tynecastle offers the squad the chance to play with more freedom, but they won’t become slack.

“There’s no doubt, when you know you’re close to the title, things tighten up – it happened last year too,” he said.

“Now we have done it, potentially there is an opportunity for players to play a little more freely.

“But, because we still have the cup final coming up, all the players will want to play in that, so I don’t think they will take their foot off the pedal.”

The players can’t afford to relax, with the competition in the squad meaning that if one player drops off the pace, another will just slot right in. It’s a great thing to have, and the benefits continue to show.

The first game Celtic have as champions is at Ibrox, and Postecoglou and his players will be going for the win.
