Celtic fans have shown their love for new manager Ange Postecoglou after he gave an emotional interview following the club’s victory.  

While talking after the Bhoys’ recent victory over Hearts in the Premier Sports Cup, Postecoglou explained (via Clyde 1 Superscoreboard) how his late father would have been proud of the performance his team put in.

Postecoglou said: “That’s the football my father sort of instilled into me. He’s up there now, but I always envisaged, if he was in the stands, what would he be saying about the team. He wasn’t that enraptured by results, he wanted to see a certain kind of football. Yeah, he would have been off his chair for the first half and a bit today.”

Celtic won the game 3-2 with goals from Odsonne Edouard, Stephen Welsh and Kyogo Furuhashi. They will now progress into the quarter-final stage of the competition.

The club’s fans spotted the interview online and were quick to show their appreciation for Postecoglou’s honest words.

Here’s what these Celtic fans had to say…

“You keep bringing this big man, you will be a hero.”

“Ma man!”
“He is so pure and should be defended at all costs.”
“Cheers crying now, nice one.”
“Aww bless his wee cotton socks, man.”
“I love this guy.”

Postecoglou has spoken about his father in the past, as earlier in the summer, he spoke about the ‘sacrifices’ his parents had to make as they moved from Greece to Australia.

He explained his father didn’t even speak a word of English, but opted to move overseas in order to give his children a better life.

The decision certainly seemed to pay off, with Postecoglou now in charge of one of Britain’s biggest football clubs.
