Postecoglou wants Celtic to 'create another significant moment' against Rangers

CELTIC BOSS Ange Postecoglou has told his treble-chasing side to "create another significant moment" when they face Rangers in the latest Old Firm game this weekend.

Celtic's last treble came in the 2019–20 season under Brendan Rodgers, and the current Celtic side have the chance to emulate it this month.

Postecoglou's team has already won the Scottish League Cup and the Scottish League, and they are in the final of the Scottish Cup, which will be played later this month.

Despite having already secured the League, Postecoglou doesn't believe that Celtic will lack any motivation for the game, despite having already won the Scottish Premiership.

"If we were going there to win it (the title), there would probably be more hype around it, so from that perspective, it doesn't feel as intense in terms of the build-up. But I don't think that will diminish the game itself," the Celtic boss said to the press on Friday.

"I still think it will have all the elements you expect in a derby game. All these things have context. Our goal every year is to be champions. The last couple of years, it gets you into the Champions League and everything that brings with it.

"That's where the ambitions lie, but within that, you have these individual contests that you know are important and significant to the club, and every derby is that kind of game.

"It's an opportunity to win against a very good team and the team closest to us in the table, a game that always means something to our supporters. It's an opportunity to create another significant moment for us."

Celtic's game against Rangers at Ibrox starts at 12.30 tomorrow.
