Celtic: Agbonlahor drops Postecoglou pressure claim

Celtic: Agbonlahor drops Postecoglou pressure claim -Celtic

Pundit Gabby Agbonlahor believes Celtic should stick with Hoops manager Ange Postecoglou despite the pressure piling at Parkhead, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Postecoglou’s comments

The Hoops have now been victorious in just two of their last eight fixtures in all competitions following a 4-0 defeat at Celtic Park to Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday.

Prior to that loss, Postecoglou commented dismissing the ‘narrative’ that his Celtic side were ‘struggling’.

However, on Friday morning, reporter Kieran Devlin dropped a worrying claim regarding Postecoglou, admitting it looks doubtful he will get the extended period needed to really instil his philosophies.

The Latest: Agbonlahor’s comments

Agbonlahor, who now contributes as a pundit for Sky Sports, was asked by Football Insider if Postecoglou’s position should be under threat.

He thinks the Hoops will give the manager some time, especially with players out injured, with Kyogo Furuhashi only recently making his return.

“I don’t think so.

“Rangers have dropped points as well. It was always going to be tough this season for Celtic. They didn’t have much money to spend, they lost Odsonne Edouard and Scott Brown.

“They’ll give him some time. As long as he doesn’t start losing week in, week out. They’ll give him some time, definitely.

“They’ve got players out with injuries as well, like Kyogo Furuhashi.”

The Verdict: Spot on

Celtic chiefs shouldn’t be expecting miracles from Postecoglou in his first season. There’s been plenty of changes off the field, a number of incomings and outgoings in regards to recruitment and he’s had to deal with plenty of injuries.

Time is required with Postecoglou being dealt a rough hand to start with, and hopefully, things will get better over the coming months.

If they don’t, then Celtic may decide to seriously consider Postecoglou’s position, but for now, they’ll have to remain patient.
