The English Premier League’s official Twitter account took a moment to tip its hat to Celtic on Saturday evening, and for good reason. The tweet celebrated former Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou’s astounding achievement of 50 home games unbeaten as a manager. “Across his time at Yokohama F. Marinos, Celtic and now @SpursOfficial, Ange Postecoglou has made home advantage count šŸ‘,” the tweet read.

It’s hardly a secret that the bulk of this remarkable feat was chalked up at the iconic Celtic Park. Under Postecoglou’s stewardship, Celtic weren’t just a force to be reckoned with at home; they were a side that played eye-catching, attacking football. In his debut season, he steered the Hoops to a domestic double, and he didn’t stop there. His second season saw Celtic clinch a treble, leaving an indelible impression on the club and its supporters.

Fast-forward to today, and Postecoglou has assumed command at Tottenham Hotspur. If the initial reservations from the Spurs fans echo the early scepticism he faced at Celtic, you’re not alone in thinking so. Much like his time in Glasgow, Ange has managed to convert the Tottenham crowd, turning doubters into believers in no time.

The tweet from the Premier League not only serves as a tribute to Postecoglou’s managerial acumen but also offers a subtle nod to Celtic’s role in moulding this incredible record. It’s an acknowledgement that Celtic Park isn’t merely a stadium; it’s a fortress. It’s a place where legends are born and records are established. Ange Postecoglou is a chapter in that illustrious history, and his ongoing success only magnifies the calibre of the foundation laid at Celtic.
