Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou wants his players to improve every game they play. They put on a spectacular performance in the first half of the Old Firm Derby racing to a three-goal lead before the break. The lead could have been much more had it not been for the heroics of Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor.
“We go into every game, whether that is Wednesday night or on Sunday, saying to the boys, ‘okay, the main objective will be to play our best game of the season today – let’s play better than we have played so far,” Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou said. “So you are not thinking about how we played in the last game, that it was good and we want to repeat that. We don’t want to repeat that, you want to improve on that. It doesn’t always work out like that, sometimes there is a dip in form, sometimes the opposition can stop you from playing at those levels but in terms of the intent, of course, you want to improve.”
“Matt O’Riley is three games into his Celtic career, Reo Hatate, Giorgos Giakoumakis – most of these guys are at the beginning of a new cycle, a new way of playing so there has to be an improvement, we have to improve, absolutely,” he added. “If we want to be a team we want to be, even for this year, if we want to be successful, we have to be better than we were the other night.”
