Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton believes that the onus will now be on Ange Postecoglou to keep delivering silverware at Parkhead.
The 55-year-old tactician led the club back to the top of the Scottish Premiership title this week as the Bhoys drew 1-1 at Dundee United having already clinched the Scottish League Cup back in December.
After nine years of dominance in Scotland, the Hoops relinquished their title last season without even a whimper as Rangers strolled to a 25-point lead to reclaim the title.
Should Celtic break their club record to buy CCV?
However, the Greek-Australian has turned things around at Lennoxtown this year with Sutton now suggesting that the bar is set and it will have to be met and maybe even raised.
Speaking on the GegenPod Football podcast Sutton said:
(16:33) “ “For him to do that is amazing. The unfortunate thing for him now is that the expectation will go through the roof now, and Celtic fans will be expecting more next season. That’s the nature of Glasgow.”
TIF Thoughts on Ange and Celtic…
Sutton will know the level of expectation at Parkhead having played there for six years between 2000 and 2006.
The centre-forward won four league titles, three Scottish Cups and one Scottish League Cup while in Glasgow and believes that Ange will need to haul similar levels of silverware.
The coach has already proven to be a shrewd operator in the transfer market this campaign raiding the J.League in Japan where he formerly worked and the loan signings of Cameron Carter-Vickers and Jota have been crucial to their resurgence this campaign.
However, and as Ange will know himself the club need to continue to improve especially with the Celts set for a return to Champions League football and will need further signings in order to cope with those demands and that level of playing.
