Talksport pundit Alan Brazil has admitted that he is scared of meeting Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou after the comments he made about the Hoops boss when he was first appointed.

The former Ipswich star slaughtered the former Australian boss when it was announced that he had been appointed in charge following the debacle over Eddie Howe.

He was laughing about it and also took aim at the fact that the Hoops had to apply for an exemption with UEFA for the new boss to manage in Europe.

Brazil admits that he has been proved completely wrong by the 57-year-old as he has completely transformed the football club and won three out of the past four trophies available.

Postecoglou’s side have already picked up the Viaplay Cup this season and look set to add the Scottish Premiership title as they currently sit nine points clear at the top of the table. They will face Rangers in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup and hope to again book their place in a final at Hampden.

The pundit attended the cup final last month and has admitted that he was scared he would bump into the Celtic boss after the comments he made where he also made fun of the pronunciation of his surname.

“Rangers played well second half. Celtic not played them off the park first half, but there was a gulf in class. Then Celtic ran out of puff a wee bit and Rangers come back into it,” said Brazil speaking to [AceOdds]. 

“But Celtic have a lot of character. The manager, who I’d never heard of, and it turns out I played against him at the end of my career, when I played for Wollongong, we played Melbourne and he was on the team sheet, someone sent me it.

“I’ve yet to bump into him. I’m scared to! Because I was saying, ‘who’s this guy? What’s going on? Where did he come from?’ And he’s proved us all wrong. He certainly proved me wrong. And they tell me he’s a great guy.

“So they’ve still got every chance of doing the treble, they really have. And my worry is, will we keep him? But rumour has it, he will sign a new contract at Celtic, he loves it.”
