“I would loved to have challenged him” – Has Alex McLeish forgotten EBT’s are illegal as he speaks about Celtic manager

The appointment of Ange Postecoglou was met with a derisory and disrespectful response from the media and fans of the dead club.

Predictions of being sacked by Christmas and he’s never managed a proper team really bit the Sevco fans on the backside. Signings like Kyogo Furuhashi, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Reo Hatate quickly made their mark and put the Ibrox club, and their fans, back in their box.

Former Rangers manager Alex McLeish shared his thoughts on what he thought about the signing of Annge and it’s great to see the Celtic boss quickly made him eat his words.

Talking to the Daily Record, McLeish said, “In the beginning with Ange you were thinking, ‘wait a minute, he is not going to last long’.

Then all of a sudden it becomes clear the style of play he put into the team, the players proved different to what people thought.

It would have been great to challenge him but you have to believe in yourself.

Challenge him? McLeish wouldn’t have been fit to sit in the same room as Ange.

McLeish himself admitted that when he was manager of Rangers the only way he could keep up with Celtic is by using EBT’s. How would he do that now?

Bluff and bluster from McLeish as he tries to keep himself relevant.
