Celtic captain Callum McGregor has fired a warning to the rest of the league that there is much more to come from his side under Ange Postecoglou.
The Hoops booked their place in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup on Saturday after a dominating 3-0 victory at Tynecastle.
Hearts didn’t lay a glove on Postecoglou’s side who have been utterly relentless this season having already secured the Viaplay Cup and sit nine points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
They won’t be too bothered about who they are drawn to face in the last four of the competition as they remain focused on the task in hand.
At every given chance, Postecoglou has added something different to his squad during each transfer window while he has been at the helm as McGregor has insisted that they will only continue to evolve and get even better.
McGregor knows all about the standards which are expected to lead a team like Celtic and this season could join the likes of Jimmy Johnstone and Bobby Murdoch as one of the clubs most decorated players.
“Our football is always evolving, the players are understanding more and more about how to play the system and you can see them working it out even every day in training,” said McGregor as quoted by [Football Scotland].
“We find different solutions to what we face in a game. You see them now starting to think ‘right, where do I need to be’ in relation to where the ball is.
“That’s the way we play football, you need everybody moving in relation and keeping the distances good to connect the game.
“As soon as you do that you have three guys at the top of the pitch with quality, pace, and who score goals.
“You can definitely see what we are trying to do coming together but by no means are we the finished article. We keep going and we always try and take the small details to learn and push ourselves as a group.
“We believe that if we play our best game every time we go on the pitch we will be very difficult to stop.”
The side look as though they are beginning to peak at exactly the right point in the season which has been the mark of many great Celtic sides from the past.
European football will likely be used as a benchmark for next season and the players will be hoping that they can reflect their domestic form into the Champions League.
It looks as though the squad will be boosted for the game against Hibs by the return of forward Daizen Maeda who sent an update out on social media about his injury [Read more here].
