Confirmed: Yet another brilliant step forward for Celtic manager as he scoops award

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has won the Cinch Manager of the Month following an excellent run of Bhoys form.

Since the last international break, Postecoglou’s side have been rampant. Wins over Aberdeen, Motherwell, St Johnstone and Hibs, as well as a draw with Livingston, mean he took his new team on an unbeaten streak through October [WhoScored?].

At a crucial time, Postecoglou’s side have picked up momentum. He’s got the best out of summer signings like Kyogo Furuhashi, Joe Hart and Jota. Equally, he’s revitalised talents like Callum McGregor and Tom Rogic, while Anthony Ralston has emerged as a star player.

Just a month ago, the Celtic boss was being criticised. His future at the club questioned, his tactics under the microscope. How things can change in 31 days.

It’d be impossible to argue he doesn’t deserve the nod from Cinch. The Bhoys have cut the gap at the top of the table, turned around away form and even made a mark in Europe.

He’s started November as he’s meant to go on. A win against Dundee at the weekend encapsulated how exciting Celtic’s football had become under the Greek-Aussie boss.

With January ahead, there’s hope that Postecolgou can add more thrilling players to his cohort at Paradise.

Of course, Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou deserves praise

Now, call us at 67 Hail Hail biased in Celtic’s favour if you will. Primarily because, well, obviously.

But even talking objectively, the improvement Celtic made over October was startling. Yes, there had been some big score lines and important wins before.

But in the month just past, Postecoglou found what he hadn’t had yet as Celtic manager: consistency.

On a weekly basis, his stars are putting on excellent displays for the supporters. His tactics have clicked and, perhaps most integral of all, he’s built a defence that’s conceded just 1 goal at home this season so far.

That’s mighty impressive work.

Here’s hoping the Celtic manager takes a moment to enjoy it.
