Kyogo Furuhashi and Giorgos Giakoumakis scored a brace each as Celtic produced one of the high-scoring football scores of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. Furuhashi opened the scoring in the 21st minute before David Turnbull doubled their advantage in the 40th minute. Furuhashi scored his second in the 44th minute before jota made it four in the 59th minute. Giakoumakis scored his first in the 68th minute before he scored his second in stoppage time.
Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou: “We all start with the greatest of ambitions and dreams. It’s been the tightest league for a number of years. Rangers were outstanding this season. These lads have been incredible – they went 32 years without losing. We had a real clarity of purpose and tunnel vision all year. There were so many things that could have got in our way. I want them to enjoy it, the players and staff. Our families make the biggest sacrifice. If they smile for an afternoon, I think that helps. I’m kind of trying to comprehend it all. There will be a moment of reflection and understanding of what we achieved. Like these legends, in 20 years’ time we will have shared a magic moment. This afternoon, [I’ll stop] and then back to work tomorrow! It’s a special moment.”
Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic: “It’s hard to put into words. The club has been an enormous part of my life. I can’t thank everyone enough. I had a great send-off today and it’s been an emotional day for me and my family. I’m fortunate to have had many great moments here, been part of lots of great teams, and won lots of trophies. I look back on amazing moments and memories and I can only say great things about the club.”
