Ange Postecoglou leads Celtic FC to Scottish League Cup victory


Ange Postecoglou has led Celtic FC to its third trophy with a 2-1 victory over bitter rivals Rangers in the Scottish League Cup final on Sunday.

A minute before the end of a breathless first half at Glasgow’s Hampden Park on Sunday, Japan striker Kyogo Furuhashi tapped in from close range before netting a similar effort in the 56th minute to put Postecoglou’s side in a commanding position.

Gers striker Alfredo Morelos reduced the deficit 10 minutes later but a spirited Light Blues fightback fell short and indeed Celtic could have stretched their lead in the closing moments.

The victory means Postecoglou has now claimed his third trophy as Celtic manager. He’s won the League Cup twice and the Scottish Premiership in less than two seasons at Parkhead.

After the match, Postecoglou said he was proud of the team.

“It’s a cup final and rarely will one side dominate, although I thought we were fantastic in terms of our football in such a big game. With the atmosphere the way it was, we scored two excellent goals,” he said.

“The players and staff have worked awfully hard and part of the process is to get rewarded at some point so you can keep working hard… and we know what it means for our supporters.”
