ANGE POSTECOGLOU has spoken to CeltsAreHere after his side ran rampant on the last day of the season, beating Motherwell 6-0.

Giakoumakis and Kyogo both managed to score a brace, with David Turnbull and Jota both getting on the scoresheet too. It was a brilliant performance; the match summed up Angeball perfectly.

CeltsAreHere caught up with Ange after the match, where we asked him if he could sum up the Aussie midfielder in three words; the manager replied;

“Three words ain’t going to do it, mate.

“With Tom, for a foreign player to last this long at this football club, you’ve got to be made of some pretty strong stuff.

“He came here as a teenager, and he’s leaving as a family man with a child. He’s had his whole adult life here.

“Everyone knows the expectations you have when you play for this football club. Every year you’re expected to perform and have success, so you don’t last here unless you’re a really strong character.

“I knew Tom from Australia. I’ve always loved him as a footballer, and I knew he’d fit into the way we play our football.

“It’s been great for me to be able to work with him for the last 12 months.

“In the beginning, he was the go-to man for people trying to find information about me – hopefully, he said nice things!

“Irrespective, he’s been a great source for me in the dressing room because I know he’s been really positive about everything. If there have been doubts, he’s said to stick to the process because he knows where it’ll get us in the end.”

Tom Rogic was emotional as he walked off the Celtic Park pitch for the last time, with the crowd giving their hero a standing ovation.

Ange confirmed that Tom Rogic decided to call it quits at the end of this season and that the club wasn’t going to stand in his way. Serving the club for nine years, he’s won countless trophies and leaves Celtic with the fans’ best wishes.
