Ange Postecoglou has insisted he is desperately hoping that he and his squad see the return of the Celtic support when they are back in action against Hibernian at Celtic Park a week on Monday.

In the last few weeks, we have been without action in the Scottish Premiership due to an increased winter break, which has seen no top-flight side in Scotland play a competitive fixture since the 26th of Decemeber.

This is, of course, due to the prospect of clubs playing their home fixtures in front of just 500 supporters.

Postecoglou is hoping that won’t be the case when the Hoops return to action next week, as he provided yet another brilliant speech regarding football supporters and the impact they have on the game.

“For me, it’s beyond talking about how important it is,” Postecoglou said. “It’s all-encompassing,” he said, as quoted by the Glasgow Times.

“It’s the one thing, football and supporters are not two separate entities as far as I’m concerned.

“As I said after the St Johnstone game, we won, but I didn’t really enjoy the game, and I don’t think anyone does.

“I don’t think there would be a football club around the world or a football player who wants to play in empty stadiums.

“The quicker we can stop differentiating football and supporters and just treat it as one entity [the better].

“That’s why I thought it was great that the league decided to stop for that week earlier, because it gives us a chance to get football back up and running, and for me, football is supporters in the stadium.”

The Celtic boss continues to get these sorts of comments spot on, with that he has to say about supporters being back in football grounds.

It is simply not the same watching a game behind closed doors, compared to the atmosphere supporters across the Scottish game provide for clubs.

We are all hoping for the best as we await news on the potential return of supporters in a larger capacity over the next week.
