Ange Postecoglou Makes Title Race Admission

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has admitted his side has little margin for error at this early stage of the season in this campaign’s title race.

As quoted by the Daily Record, the Hoops boss knows the sort of pressure he and his side are under, going into a busy schedule of games in the next few months. However, he reiterated the point that they would take things one game at a game, starting with Dundee United on Sunday.

 

“We have little or no scope for dropping points. All we have to do is try to win games of football.

“I’m not going to look into a crystal ball and say how many points we’re going to need or how many games when we can drop when we’re still here in the very early part of the season.

“You know, people assume things along the way. And you use historical references for that. I’ve a feeling this league will be tight this year. But then again, I could be wrong.

“For us, regardless of who we’re playing, Sunday becomes an important game – particularly after losing last week.

“We know we can’t drop too many games in the league, and we’ve got to get on a run of
good results.

“There’s no place better than here to start because our home form has been really good, really strong all season.

“Dundee United will be a tough challenge; they played on Thursday night as well.

“It’s good that we’re facing teams who have the same shorter preparation time, as well.

“Hopefully, we recover well, and everyone is ready to go.”

During the early points of this season, it has been clear to see there have been positives under Ange Postecoglou and the style of play he is bringing to the club by introducing his philosophy.

At the same time, there has, of course, also been some disappointments with specific results. Last weekends defeat to Livingston being one of those.

Despite those results, many fans remain positive, myself included, that things are going in the right direction under Postecoglou, with this rebuild having no quick or easy fix.

Fingers crossed, we can see the players thrive under pressure, like many of them have in the past, and build some momentum going forward into the next few games.
