Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has been left delighted at the number of goalscorers in his Hoops side this season, detailing that as a ‘key’ part of his teams success so far.

Goals have been passed around the side this season, and that was no different on Saturday afternoon, with six players adding to their tally for the season in the 7-0 win against St Johnstone.

Speaking in the aftermath of the game, Postecoglou admitted that is a key part of his side, with the starting 11 not looking to be too heavily reliant on one or two players to add the goals.

“It is great. It has been key for us,” he said, as quoted by Herald Scotland.

“At the start of the year, it was Kyogo, Dave, Liel (Abada) and Jota who were doing it, and now it is Daizen (Maeda), Giorgos (Giakoumakis), Matty (O’Riley) and (Reo) Hatate. It is an important part of who we want to be as a team.

“We don’t want to be too reliant on one or two guys for our goals. We have had goals from Anthony Ralston at full-back, Josip Juranovic through his penalties, so that is an important part of who we are as well.

“We want to be a team who has multiple threats, and players will take confidence from the fact that we had so many scoring today.”

As Ange mentions, the goals have very much been passed around the team this season, with the likes of Abada, Kyogo and Anthony Ralston having spells of goal scoring form.

It has been brilliant to see the attacking style of play that Postecoglou has brought to this Celtic team, with potential goal-scoring threats all over the pitch.

Postecoglou will be hoping to see that trend continue as we approach the final run-in this season.
