“Champions, that’s who we are”: Postecoglou lifts Scottish Premiership as Celtic thrash Motherwell


Ange Postecoglou and his Celtic side were in celebration mode on Saturday, winning 6-0 at home against Motherwell to end their title-winning Scottish Premiership season.

In the Australian’s first year in the role, he led Celtic to the top as they ended up four points ahead of bitter rivals Rangers in second.

Having claimed the league with a draw earlier this week, Celtic Park was raucous in the final game, with the Bhoys putting on a show in front of a sold-out crowd.

Speaking post-match, Postecoglou thanked his players, the club’s management and the fans – who he described as the best on the planet.

“Champions, that’s who we are,” Postecoglou said.

“I just want to thank everyone involved from the board management and the best staff in the land - unbelievable effort.

“I’ve got a group of players who have been unbelievable - champions of Scotland and well deserved. And for you, the best (fans) on the planet - unbelievable.

“You’ve embraced me, my family, this jumper. And I want everyone to enjoy today, enjoy the summer and we’ll come back bigger and better - because we never stop.”

The match was also a significant one for Socceroo Tom Rogic, who revealed earlier in the week that he would depart Celtic at season’s end.

Speaking to Sky Sports post-match, Rogic looked back on the fond memories he formed at Parkhead.

“It’s hard to put into words. The club’s been an enormous part of my life,” Rogic said.

“I can’t thank everyone enough, it was emotional for me and my family.

“I’ve been fortunate I’ve had many great moments, I’ve been part of many successful teams and won a lot of trophies.

“You look around and see the atmosphere, it’s special. I’ll be watching as a fan.”

The championship win is the 10th in the last 11 seasons for the Hoops, while Postecoglou also took the club to League Cup glory earlier this season.
