Giorgos Giakoumakis is still buzzing about victory over Rangers as he explains why “aggressive” Celtic bring out their best

GIORGOS GIAKOUMAKIS says Celtic players are still in ninth place after their win over Rangers on derby day left them close to claiming the Scottish Premiership title.

Stunned by the atmosphere at Ibrox when Greek forward Ange Postecoglou’s men fought an early Rangers blitz to claim a 2-1 win, this win brought them six points in the lead in the Scottish Premiership.

And Giakoumakis is still at the top of the result that he and his teammates have managed to achieve, and all the experience of doing it in the opponents’ backyard.

“It was incredible, we hummed for the next few days,” Giakoumakis told beIN Sports.

“I’ve never experienced anything like it. Anyone who has not experienced such a match on the pitch cannot understand. Let’s talk about life experience.

“The Legacy Firms are always very special games. They are life experiences for every player involved in them. The atmosphere is magical. ”

Giakoumakis failed to score at Ibrox, but with his running speed and solid holding play he gave the Rangers defenders a fiery afternoon.

This was the last of the 27-year-old’s impressive personal performances, who had been paired up for Celtic in the past two months after starting a slow life in Glasgow due to illness and injury.

This series in good form could not have come at a more opportune time for Ange Postecoglou’s side given Kyogo’s long absence, and Giakoumakis thinks there is more to him as his characteristics fit well with Celtic’s aggressive approach. . .

The way we play is ideal for me. ”

“Very aggressive with a lot of crosses from the side, he gives me a lot of opportunities. [chances in the] the last third of each game.

As for the comparison between the Dutch and Scottish championships, I think they are almost the same.

“The Scottish championship is much more difficult. In the Netherlands, dueling games dominate, while in Scotland dueling and passion come first. In terms of speed (in terms of), I’d say the Scot is faster ”
