STAN PETROV was open and honest during his air time on the Celtic Pass after more dropped points.
The leading questions by Gerry McCulloch which try to put a positive spin on things wasn’t washing with the former Celtic midfielder.
Petrol, who has recently passed his UEFA coaching badges is amazed by the lack of a plan B the Celtic manager has when teams constantly set up the same way against them.
We all knew how St Johnstone were going to set up but yet the manger played the same players doing the same things and yielding the same result. It’s so depressing to think the board are still happy to back this regime with what they’re seeing on the pitch.
Stan seemed frustrated watching his old side struggle.
“The main disappointment would be the reaction of the players after the build up to the game. I wanted to see if there was a change and how much urgency they had in the second half but if anything Saints grew in confidence. It was like they knew Celtic had no surprises.” Petrov told the CelticPass as cited by RecordSport.
“They got back late on but it was desperation. I was disappointed in the lack of urgency in the final third. We want to see players being aggressive and on the front foot. Are we seeing that? I don’t think so. St Johnstone came with a plan but Celtic didn’t have a plan B. It’s a concern.”
There has been soul searching, post match analysis, talk of a culture change, physiological issues and even a socially distanced hang out room and Lennoxtown being implemented. Nothing is working under the current manager and the only ones who refuse to see that are the board who are culpable of gross negligence at this point.
