Main stand at Celtic Park

Stan Petrov criticises two ‘sloppy’ players and hails Postecoglou’s ‘great vision’ for substitute change

Just when we thought that we could be dropping two points on Saturday against Aberdeen, this Celtic team pull a victory from the brink.

Another late goal, another late three points. These kind of finishes by Postecoglou’s side are now synonymous with last minute goals and it must drive our rivals insane!

But two players were singled out by former Celt, Stan Petrov, for criticism in Saturday’s win at Pittodrie.

As we huffed and puffed and struggled to break down a dogged defence, Jota and Maeda had the finger pointed at them by the former Celtic star.

Speaking post match on Sky Sports, Petrov said, “The wide players were a bit sloppy. Maeda and Jota.

In the first half, Maeda was going backwards rather than forwards.

What Abada done was he got the ball and draws the player. And what he done is that he got into space, he tried to put in a cross.

He brought a little bit more urgency, but this is a great, great vision from Ange Postecoglou. Good game management.”

It was great vision by Ange and vision we are used to seeing every week from him.

The gaffer makes great use of the five subs rule and how many times has he pulled us out of a hole with it?

Maybe it’s time to give Abada an extended run in the team as it is clear he is one of our dangermen whenever he is on the park.
