Ever since Ange Postecoglou took over at Celtic he and this team have been motivated by just one thing; the setting of our own standards. This is the most driven and dedicated Celtic side I have watched in my lifetime.
They are consistent to a degree which is almost unbelievable.
Every player works hard. Every player gives his all.
One of the secrets of our success is that we never focus on what other people are doing elsewhere. Another of the secrets of our success is that our quest for glory and honours is motivated solely by our drive and desire to be everything we can be.
The Motherwell manager sat in front of the media yesterday, with his game against the Ibrox club coming up, and spoke about the form of their team and ours.
He seems to think that we’re motivated to keep on winning because they are.
He ought to listen to Ange and our players more.
Our record goes back to before theirs. We’re winning whether they’re winning or not. What drives us is Ange’s desire to keep on improving, to keep on evolving, to keep on growing as a team.
As such, we couldn’t care what they’re doing over there, the only thing that matters, and drives this Celtic team, is that we continue down that path, a path towards excellence, knowing full well that if we can keep on progressing down that road that the rest takes care of itself.
It’s a simple philosophy.
That’s why it’s hard to understand why so many folk struggle to comprehend it. When you are already the best and your sole focus is being even better, for its own sake, for its own rewards, how is anyone else meant to catch you?
Their form over there has been good, but we’ve rendered their efforts redundant and in beating them in the cup we’ve plunged them into crisis, proving that whilst we’re not focussed on them they are absolutely driven by what we’re doing here.
Robinson should think more before he opens his mouth.
That was a daft comment to make, especially as every word out of Celtic Park contradicts it.
