Celtic endured a nightmare 2020/21 campaign, finishing it without a single trophy and 25 points behind the Rangers in the Premiership table. Thus, it was time for change and they made that by bringing in Ange Postecoglou as the club’s manager, after a failed attempt to appoint Eddie Howe. Back then, there were many fans who were not happy with the move. It is safe to say though that things can change very quickly in football.
And they have for Celtic as they lifted the first trophy of the 2021/22 season, winning the Scottish League Cup.
A brace from Kyogo Furuhashi was enough to hand them a 2-1 win in the final against Hibernian and get them back to their trophy winning ways.
And it was a massive night for a lot of people associated with Celtic, as it feels like the storm has come to an end and golden skies are on the horizon.
Celtic: 3 biggest winners from Scottish League Cup win
Here are Celtic’s three biggest winners from their Scottish League Cup win, thus bringing an end to their one season-long trophy drought:
It is safe to say that the biggest win of the night has to go to Ange Postecoglou. He arrived at Scotland with a lot of question marks surrounding him.
The manager had enjoyed a lot of success in both Japan and Australia but was an unknown in European football at the time of his appointment as Celtic manager.
It has not taken him long to become a fan favourite at Celtic though as his style of football as well as his charisma. And now, this trophy almost solidifies his arrival in Scottish football.
Postecoglou though will be hoping that this is just the start, as there is still a lot of silverware to play for this season and Celtic do look ready compete.
