Owen Hargreaves has hailed the brilliant football Celtic play under Ange Postecoglou and believes that other teams will be taking note.

Although the Hoops may feel disappointed not to have taken all three points in Warsaw, a draw away from home in the Champions League is never a bad result.

Postecoglou’s side have given a great account of themselves in the first two matches and will be frustrated that they only have a single point to show for their efforts.

The Scottish champions are still well in the mix in Group F and have two tricky games up next against Bundesliga side RB Leipzig who have recently appointed Marco Rose.

Postecoglou has already been linked with the Brighton job but the former Socceroos manager isn’t going anywhere fast.

Although some pundits are talking Ange up, there’s still a lot of things to do at Celtic. Going toe-to-toe with big clubs is always going to allow you to be recognised but at this point it is nothing more than a compliment.

“They go at everyone. Ange Postecoglou and the way he plays with beautiful attacking football, he goes after everyone,” said Owen Hargreaves speaking to BT Sport. 

“He wants to play attacking football and this is what they do. They’re good in possession, in transition, they’ve got good attacking players.

“It’s really nice football. He’s playing such good football at Celtic that the Premier League is going to take notice. To do it in Europe and the Champions League, people want to do it with style and that’s what his teams do.

“They have style which fans love. Celtic fans love it.”

There’s absolutely no doubt that the aggressive fast paced football which Celtic play under Postecoglou is admired by the fans.

So far that has been reflected in the SPFL Premiership as the Hoops have won every game and sit top of the league with a five point cushion as well as a seventeen plus goal difference.

It is hoped that with the strong performances that we’ve seen in Europe that it can be translated into goals and victories in Europe.
