Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou: “It is [emotional]. I know the significance of it. It’s been a hell of a ride so far. We haven’t come into this opportunity the easy way. I’m just so proud of this group of players, they’ve been the most resilient group I’ve ever come across with what’s been thrown at us the last five, six months.”
Hibernian interim boss David Gray: “There’s massive disappointment in the dressing room. I asked them to give me everything they’ve got, and they did that today. I’d like to thank them for that. From the moment I took over they gave me everything. Celtic are a good side, started fast. We expected it and we frustrated them in the first half then created chances in the second. If we could have just held onto the lead it might have made a difference.”
