ANGE POSTECOGLOU has hinted that his side wasn’t clinical enough when Celtic saw out Dundee United to progress to the semi-final of the Scottish Cup.

Celtic played well enough to ease past the Tayside club, scoring three goals away from home and keeping a clean sheet should be applauded, especially in a cup tie. The Hoops can count themselves unlucky to leave Tannadice with a 4-0 victory after a shambolic decision from John Beaton ruled out Maeda’s goal.

Speaking after the match, the Celtic manager hinted that he wasn’t satisfied with his team’s end product, believing the ball should have been in the back of the net a couple more times.

“It’s not easy.” Postecoglou told the BBC

“When you can’t move the ball quickly because of the conditions and the opposition are deep. We still had some bright moments. We had a goal disallowed and I thought there were a couple of other times where the ball has flashed across the box and we could’ve done better.

“But when you’re coming away from home in a knockout game, then 3-0 is pretty comprehensive.”

There have been many instances this season when Postecoglou has stated that his team should have been more clinical.

Nonetheless, Ange can’t be too disappointed. His team will be at Hampden on the  Easter weekend, playing for a place in the Scottish Cup final.
