Ange Postecoglou said it took "every ounce of him" to lead Celtic to the Scottish Premiership title. The Hoops sealed their 10th title in 11 seasons after grinding out a tenacious draw against Dundee United at Tennadice on Wednesday. Giorgos Giakoumakis opened the scoring for Celtic only for Dylan Levitt to level things up with a stunning strike. However, a point was all Celtic needed to put them out of the reach of rivals and Europa League finalists Rangers, and they were able to secure it. "We've been focused all season, not getting distracted by anything," Postecoglou said "The players were really good at dealing with what was in front of them - and that's not easy to do." "It's hard for me to comprehend. I've had this lifelong dream to manage a world famous club, trying to make an impact. "I'm in this spot now of achieving something I've always wanted to achieve. I guess it's a weird kind of feeling for me.

"I've done about ten terrible interviews and this won't impress anyone either. It's fair to say it's taken every ounce of me. "I've put everything into it because I knew how big a challenge it was." It was also a special night for Dundee United, who have now secured European qualification for the first time in 10 years. "When you run with a small squad, thankfully we've got versatility and young players who are talented and hungry for the opportunity," boss Tam Courts said. "For me, the medium- to long-term future of this club is really bright, and in the short term we secured top six and now Europe and we have a chance to finish it off and get fourth position."
