At the start of the season, fans didn’t know what to expect for the following year.
Targets of simply improving upon the previous season’s display was a common goal.
Credit has to be given to Ange. He has exceeded expectations, and the fact that fans are disappointed to fall out of Europe after Christmas just highlights this.
Bodo well beat Celtic in the end. Poor performances are to blame, but Bodo/Glimt were very well organised and, more importantly, more clinical than us.
Live on BT Sports, the manager said;
‘I expect to come further in every competition we play in, that’s the nature of this football club. Obviously, this year for us Europe was a bit beyond us in terms of the levels we need to get to. It’s disappointing.
‘We want to be progressing further in the competition so it’s my responsibility to make sure that we improve and next year perform better.’
Postecoglou leads his side to a tough away day on Sunday. Easter Road has never been an easy place for Celtic to visit, but three points are a must if the hoops wish to maintain their advantage at the top.
Winning the match will also allow Celtic to pile the pressure on their rivals, who play in a later kick-off. Winning the game will put Celtic 6 points clear at the top.
Next season will come after Postecoglou has worked with his squad over a preseason, something he was deprived of this year.
