ANGE POSTECOGLOU was asked yet another question about his defence in today’s press conference and the manager finally hit back at the narrative his team are poor defensively.
Ange has been full of praise for his defence and has openly admitted the clean sheets do not bring him joy, but the quality of defending does.
“Look, I know people keep harping on about it but we obviously played two very good teams in Betis and Leverkusen who put four past us.
“But aside from that, teams have struggled to score against us, so I don’t think it’s been that much of an issue as others have made out.” [Celtic TV]
The question seems to be asked at every press conference, no matter if it is before the match or after.
If the Europa League matches are taken out of the equation, Celtic have a very good defensive record it is the best defensive record in the league, two goals to the good of our Glasgow rivals.
It is unusual to see Celtic with such a pleasing stat, especially with the perceived problems experienced at the back this season.
The myth of Celtic’s defence being poor needs to be scrapped now. Ange has come into Celtic and implemented his style and the squad are now reaping the benefits.
You go and give those reporters hell, Anger. Serves them right. I doubt if they will modify your words .
Simple words, for simple thinking people.
