With Celtic’s Sydney adventure coming to a close, the players will now be given a short break before they return to training at a winter camp in Portugal.
The Scottish champions currently sit nine points clear at the top of the SPFL Premiership after a 2-1 victory over Ross County before football was paused for the World Cup.
As the Hoops title challengers have dismissed their manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst today it will be business as usual for Ange Postecoglou’s side who will simply block out the noise and continue to focus on themselves.
Postecoglou has already stated that the planning and hard work has already been completed for the January transfer window with this time also being used to prepare for looking towards the summer.
He has placed a key emphasis on the club constantly evolving and improving which was one of the reasons for Socceroos legend Harry Kewell’s appointment in the summer.
At present, the squad is likely where the manager would have hoped it to be with a large contingent featuring regularly for the Hoops due to the managers rotation from game to game.
That picture of stability and planning is in stark contrast to the Celtic’s rivals presently which is strange as Ange Postecoglou was meant to be sacked last Christmas?
During the former Feyenoord bosses reign at Ibrox, Postecoglou undoubtedly got the better of the Dutchman having faced each other five times with Celtic winning three of those matches.
Postecoglou won’t be sucked into the speculation which will now swirl around about Rangers next appointment and will deal with the press in his usual fashion.
