Ange Postecoglou delivered his verdict on Aaron Mooy after the Australian international had yet another outstanding performance.
Mooy helped his Celtic side book their place in the next round of the Scottish Cup after they thumped Greenock Morton 5-0 as the 32-year-old got on the scoresheet twice.
Kyogo also kept up his terrific goalscoring form and hit twenty goals for the season which is what he managed to hit in the last campaign which is likely why he was handed man of the match.
Although the former Brighton midfielder would have also been deserving of the accolade as he was absolutely outstanding.
Before he headed to the Qatar World Cup he was building up his gametime and really impressed under Graham Arnold at the tournament to help his side reach the last 16 of the tournament.
Since returning from the tournament he has played a real key role in Postecoglou’s team and is looking to be a really important player in the squad. “
“He’s been fantastic since the World Cup and I’m probably the least surprised out of anyone because I knew what I was getting when I brought him in and I thought it was an unbelievable opportunity for us to bring a quality player in,” said Postecoglou speaking to Celtic FC website.
“Once he found his fitness I knew he would be a key contributor and it’s not just his work off the ball, he’s a goal threat and I’m pleased for him.”
There was some mixed reaction to Mooy’s signing last summer but had the club not have been able to get Mooy on a free deal from Shanghai Port he would have easily been a £6 million player.
Mooy will continue to play a big part in the team for the remaining months of the season as the Hoops compete on three fronts.
