Frank McAvennie has now claimed that Ange Postecoglou will be ‘annoyed’ over the questions that he is being asked in his Celtic press conferences.
The Lowdown: Pressure eased
The pressure has been eased somewhat on the Hoops manager after the 2-1 win at Aberdeen in the Premiership on Sunday, but it still leaves them sixth in the table.
Should Celtic sack Postecoglou?
The Australian has been asked questions about his team’s form in recent press conferences, and he even questioned the ‘condescending’ nature of them in one of them (Sky Sports).
The Latest: McAvennie on questioning
“He must be sick of his life.
“He’s being asked the same questions every week, how could you not be annoyed by that?
“There is so much pressure at Celtic but it’s really early doors. His job is safe, he will get time.
“These problems aren’t Ange’s, he doesn’t have the squad yet. They were being praised a few weeks ago.
“Now it’s all criticism. That happens. Let’s see where we all are in January.
“Postecoglou is in a very hard job. I don’t blame him for having a go.”
The Verdict: Too early
It is far too early for Postecoglou to be asked questions about his future after a difficult start to the season. Yes, the Hoops currently sit sixth in the Premiership and have lost their first two games in the Europa League group stage, but he still needs time to fully implement his ideas, so McAvennie is right to have sympathy for the 56-year-old.
He will not be able to get the club back to where they want to be overnight, and the process will take time. Nonetheless, the win away at Aberdeen should give the Bhoys some fresh confidence ahead of the international break.
