“There would have been big calls for his head” – Former Rangers player as the Postecoglou bashing continues
These pundits are genuinely infuriating.
And they definitely don’t sense the mood of the majority of the Celtic fans.
The Celtic rebuild was always going to be a massive job. Many pundits, and fans for that matter, had written this season off before it had even started and claimed that Ange Postecoglou will need to be given time.
Oh how much that has fell by the wayside.
Three defeats already, whilst admittedly is poor, in the league had heaped pressure on the Celtic gaffer to the point were many pundits seemed to be gleefully declaring that Postecoglou is running on borrowed time.
After SEVEN games. Yeah, I know.
With a massive player turnaround and some devastating injuries, Postecoglou had been dealt the hand from hell in his maiden season but, hopefully, the result at Aberdeen on Sunday will be the turning point for Ange and his team.
But former Rangers player Gordon Smith reckons that if he had lost against the Dons, there would have been, incredibly, calls for the managers head!
Speaking on the Only As Good As Your Last Game podcast, Smith said, “I actually felt that there would have been big calls for his head.
“The Celtic fans would have reacted to it. If he’d lost that [Aberdeen] game, there would have been a major turnaround, in terms of how he’s been accepted.
“But he got that one way, and as long as he can keep winning, if he loses more games, drops further back in the league, then that will change.
“The fans will have a go because they’re not that happy with him. Celtic are sitting there four wins from eight games. It’s pretty poor form, three defeats already this needs a season.
“Of all the top six teams actually they’ve lost the most games, so they really do need to pick up or else Postecoglou will come under pressure because the Celtic fans really do want to see things turn around and he has to get things going.
“They’re very good at attacking style but defensively they’re still vulnerable.
A nonsensical opinion that really does not capture the thoughts of the fans.
These pundits really need to take a deep breath and think about what Ange needs to deal with AND build before spouting these opinions.
