Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has insisted there is still more to come from his side, who are continuing to improve and gel as a team.

Over the past few months, this Hoops side has continued to show why they deserve to be at top spot in the Scottish Premiership, going on an impressive unbeaten run.

However, speaking to the media ahead of this weekend’s Scottish Cup tie against Raith Rovers, Postecoglou was quick to point out that his side are far from finished with their progression, with building blocks still being put in place for the future.

“We’re in a good place, and the keyword is progress,” he said, as quoted by the club website.

“That’s what I’m always looking for. I don’t say it to discount the position we are in, and I think the players and everyone’s been really fantastic in the way we are performing, but I still really think we are still building something.

“We’re not anywhere near the point where we can start thinking about our way forward; we are still putting pieces together in being the football team we want, so for me, progress is the No.1 thing.

“Every week, I am looking for some improvements in how we overcome challenges.

“We’ve seen that over the past seven days, we’ve had the derby, then we’ve had a difficult away game against Motherwell, and we had a different challenge at Aberdeen.

“That’s what I’m constantly insisting on – how we’re improving, how we are dealing with the different challenges that are put before us.

“From that point of view, it is pleasing because I think, not just from a results perspective, but performance-wise and the trajectory of the team, we are seeing that every week we are adding a little bit, which is vital if we’re going to be the team we want to be.”

The key message from Postecoglou throughout this run of good form has always been to focus on the next game and the continued development of his side.

With that in mind, it is a scary/exciting thought as to what this side could turn out to be if there is even more to come after some brilliant results and performances in the last few weeks.

Sunday will likely provide an opportunity for a number of fringe players to show what they can do from the start, also giving Ange Postecoglou a further chance to see improvements within his squad.
