Postecoglou not thinking far ahead

Ange Postecoglou

Celtic (Scottish Premiership outright – Celtic 4/11, Rangers 2/1) manager Ange Postecoglou says he is not thinking about trophies as the Scottish Premiership season enters its final stages.

There are just ten games left to play this season with Celtic and Rangers battling it out to become champions.

Celtic are hoping to reclaim the title they lost last season to the Gers, who themselves will be trying to win back-to-back top flight league titles for the first time since 2011.

The gap is three points with both sides enduring frustrating draws at the weekend.

Postecoglou’s men failed to break down Hibs at Easter Road while Giovani Van Bronckhorst’s Rangers threw away a 2-0 lead to only draw 2-2 with Motherwell as Ibrox.

Celtic host St Mirren (Match betting – Celtic 1/6, draw 7/1, St Mirren 18/1) on Wednesday evening – a fixture they won 6-0 earlier this season – but Postecoglou is taking nothing for granted.

“With 10 games there’s still a fair bit of football to be played. If you see what’s happened over the last 10 games you’ll see that things can change pretty quickly,” said the Australian.

“So we’re still in that mode of focusing on what the next challenge is for us, and that is tomorrow night against St Mirren, who we know are going to be a tough proposition.

“If you start looking too far ahead it looks like we’re in the final stretch, but 10 games is a lot of football to be played and we can’t be thinking too far ahead.”

Rangers meanwhile are away at St Johnstone (Match betting – St Johnstone 12/1, draw 9/2, Rangers 2/7), who are currently 11th in the table, two points above bottom side Dundee.

Elsewhere in Scotland, third-place Hearts host Aberdeen (Match betting – Hearts 11/8, draw 11/5, Aberdeen 23/10) with Jim Goodwin hoping to secure his first win as manager.
