ANGE POSTECOGLOU will be delighted with the latest SPFL rule change that is set to benefit his style of play.

The Scottish Premiership is set to restore FIVE subs per game, according to The Times, something Ange has advocated for bringing back.

The five-sub rule wouldn’t have done Celtic much good during the first half of the season, when we were running on fumes because of the number of first-team players out injured.

Celtic have made some key additions in the January transfer window, and they will almost certainly add to their squad before the month is done.

Having a high-quality squad and the ability to utilise more of his players will be music to the Celtic manager’s ears.

“I think there are a couple of things there.

“That’s one aspect and with Covid still hanging around there are some challenges in terms of you may lose players because of positive tests.

“But if you’ve got injuries that can also come from clubs being unable to rotate or rest players. I think it’s something that should be looked at if we’re going to continue these kinds of schedules.”

The rule will come in straight away and both Celtic and Hibernian will be allowed to use 5 substitutions.

The rule was scrapped because many clubs believed it suited the bigger teams in the league. However, given the call-offs due to injury and the pandemic, it’s right to reintroduce the rule.
