In Ange Postecoglou’s maiden season the club won the League Cup and SPFL Premiership with captain Callum McGregor admitting that Celtic are just getting started. 

 

There was many doubters when the Australian arrived at Celtic Park as to whether he would be the man to reignite the club but the turnaround has been absolutely magnificent.

After a difficult start, Celtic went on a 32 match unbeaten in the Premiership to go on and win the clubs 52nd league championship.

Many new faces arrived at Lennonxtown last summer with a virtually new starting line-up being assembled. It can be extremely difficult for a new group to gel quickly but all of the new signings played their part in Celtic’s success.

With Cameron Carter-Vickers and Daizen Maeda already in the door on permanent deals, attention will turn to what’s next to continue to build a side fit for competing in the UEFA Champions League.

It will be of great benefit to the club that we are straight into the tournament’s group stages this coming season as it means that there is no risk in splashing the cash to bring in quality to play at the highest level of European club football.

Speaking to the manager post-match after the 6-0 hammering of Motherwell he emphasised the point that getting the league over the line creates a different mentality in the dressing room as the current group are all now leaders within themselves which is also exciting going forward for Callum McGregor.

“I think it was important that we managed to win the league and bring success back to the club, bring a good feeling back for the supporters and this new group of players as well. The great thing about it is it seems like this group of players are just getting started and there’s more to come,” speaking to Sky Sports.

There will be much more to come from this current group of players as well as anything Ange brings in. His track record in the transfer market has been exceptional and he has the confidence of the Celtic support to deliver once again.

The Carpenters 1972 hit ‘Top of the World’ has become a popular anthem with Celtic supporters but in reality their early tune of ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’ is also fitting for Celtic at this point in time.
