Celtic: Ally McCoist slams Josip Juranovic in Glasgow Derby

Celtic: Ally McCoist slams Josip Juranovic in Glasgow Derby -Celtic News

Sky Sports co-commentator Ally McCoist hit out at Celtic right-back Josip Juranovic during the Hoops’ 2-1 win over Rangers on Sunday lunchtime. 

The Lowdown: Juranovic’s display

Juranovic got the nod by Ange Postecoglou ahead of Anthony Ralston to make his 33rd appearance in a Celtic shirt.

The 26-year-old, who was praised for his performance in the previous Glasgow Derby at Celtic Park, struggled this time around.

As per SofaScore, Juranovic lost possession on 21 occasions, was unsuccessful in seven of his eight attempted long balls and failed to put in a successful cross, ending with a 6.5/10 match rating – only Greg Taylor ended with a lower score for the Hoops.

The Latest: McCoist’s comments

McCoist was on Juranovic’s back early on at Ibrox during Sky Sports’ live coverage of the game, labelling his role in Aaron Ramsey’s opener for the hosts as ‘really poor’.

Minutes later, the Croatian almost got caught again, with McCoist hitting out at the defender, describing him as being ‘all over the place’.

The Verdict: Huge

Even with Juranovic’s worrying display and McCoist’s brutally honest comments, the victory at Ibrox could well be season-defining and is all that really matters.

The Hoops are now six points clear of their rivals with seven games remaining thanks to goals from Tom Rogic and Cameron Carter-Vickers in the 2-1 win, and Juranovic has played a key part in the club’s impressive campaign.

He’s been a regular and has also weighed in with some big performances and goals, so we can forgive the versatile full-back for being slightly under par this afternoon.
