Celtic: Ange Postecoglou says Hearts clash too early to be ‘statement game’

Celtic: Ange Postecoglou

Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou believes that their win over Hearts was nothing more than three Premiership points. Celtic are in second place with a win for Hearts meaning they would leapfrog their opponents. Postecoglou played down the significance of the game saying that Celtic would treat it as just another game at Celtic Park.

“I think my players are just looking forward to a game at Celtic Park, playing our football and winning.” Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou said. “Statement games are at the back end of the season. Let’s just keep our pistols in our holsters for a little while. We are just going to play each game as we have so far. I have said a few times, you can get distracted by so many shiny objects everywhere.”

“What we want to do is make sure that when we play our football on a game day we are ready for that challenge, because if you start thinking that somehow a result tomorrow (Thursday) gets you something shiny and glittery you lose focus on what is important.” he added. “Our form has been good because we have been concentrating on and respecting every opponent and that is what we will do tomorrow as well. They are a good team, they have been consistent, they have an outstanding goalkeeper (Craig Gordon) who has been in great form this year, they are well-structured, they work hard as a team, they have some speed up front.”
