Ange Postecoglou Celtic press conference in full as boss issues ‘make hay while the sun shines’ injury respite call

Ange Postecoglou hopes limiting injury problems for Celtic will see the club’s relentless streak continue as they look to fight on four fronts.

The Australian has already brought the Premier Sports Cup to Parkhead, and has steered the club to the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

He will now look to guide his side to the Scottish Cup quarter-final with a win over Championship playoff hopefuls Raith Rovers on Sunday.

With the final run-in rapidly approaching, Postecoglou is able to welcome back Yosuke Ideguchi for the Celtic Park showdown, while Josip Juranovic is expected to return in the coming days.

With the Celtic squad boasting strength in depth following a busy winter window, the Parkhead boss hopes the increased numbers will help push in both the cup and league.

When asked about the easing injury problems lifting the team, he said: “It should in theory moving forward.

“It’s only been post-Rangers game that we have got some bodies back and all of a sudden got some real options, both within a game and between games.

“So that will allow me in theory in the future but I have been around long enough to know that I can change pretty quickly as well.

“What I’m trying to do is make hay while the sun shines, mate. So I’m trying to get as much in now while we have got the players in and hopefully that stays until the end of the year, which means we can accelerate a lot of things.

“But, if not and if we are again in a position where we are restricted, we still have a big squad.”

Celtic face a Raith side in chaos following the controversial signing of David Goodwillie, which sparked outrage with Kirkcaldy fans and across the globe.

When asked of the fallout from the deal acted as a reminder to manager’s of how mindful they have to be when signing players, he said: “Without talking about that (Goodwillie), I think just as a manager, a football club or any organization like ours you have to be mindful of the impact on the club and the community, and society in general.

“When making big decisions you are hopefully in a room with a various range of thoughts and processes so you can give context to any decision.

“I’m always mindful of that when I speak, and what I say doesn’t just represent me, it represents this football club. I think we are all mindful of our responsibilities.”
