Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou wants Celtic to give their fans a “special night” against Dundee United on Wednesday by securing the Scottish Premiership title at Tannadice.
With two Scottish Premiership fixtures remaining, Celtic are six points ahead of Europa League finalists Rangers with a goal difference superior by 20 which, in reality, makes the title Parkhead-bound.
Celtic finished 25 points behind their Old Firm rivals in the league race last season before the Australian took over in the summer and now the title is almost in his grasp at the first time of asking, with the champions-elect preparing for the trip to Tayside on Wednesday night.
Postecoglou said: “We are under no illusions, tomorrow we have an opportunity to make it a special night for the football club and our supporters. I am sure they will enjoy it.
“After last season’s disappointments, not just the fact that we obviously didn’t have success as a football club, they weren’t able to feel part of it, they couldn’t contribute as they weren’t allowed in the stadiums [due to pandemic restrictions].
“This year, everyone has put in maximum effort including our supporters.
“Everything they had pent up from last year they have released this year in a positive way and I am sure everyone is looking forward to the last two games.
“Our role in that is to make sure we continue on with our good form and continue on from the football we played at the weekend and take that into tomorrow night and as I said, take the opportunity to make it a special night.”
Celtic’s 4-1 home win over Hearts at the weekend made it 30 league games unbeaten, since the Hoops lost 1-0 away to Livingston last September.
