Celtic supervisor Ange Postecoglou managed to finish his debut season in control of the Bhoys in a quite profitable trend.
Along with taking the SPFL title away from Rangers and again to Parkhead, the Hoops additionally ended the marketing campaign with the most effective assault and greatest defensive document within the division.
With 38 video games performed, Celtic scored 92 targets and conceded simply 22, which is 12 greater than Rangers scored and 9 fewer than they conceded.
