Frank McAvennie's bizarre comments about Ange Postecoglou and life at Celtic

Former Celtic forward Frank McAvennie has claimed Ange Postecoglou must be “sick of his life” at the Bhoys, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary.

McAvennie reckons the Celtic boss is feeling the pressure after joining the club over the summer, due to his handling of press affairs over the last couple of weeks.

Speaking to Football Insider, the pundit said: “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.”

I’m not sure McAvennie has been paying close enough attention to what Ange has had to say recently, because it seems that the Celtic manager is the calmest man in Glasgow right now.

In fact, he says he is loving this part of the job as the doubters rack up and the results deteriorate. He’s made it perfectly clear he relishes this pressure.

It’s clear that despite whatever criticism is aimed his way he will brush it off and continue in the way he thinks is best. The Greek-Australian is not going to wilt under adversity.

That strength of character in the media glare is admirable, but what we’re all craving right now is results.

We need a win in Aberdeen tomorrow to send us into the international break with a cheerier complexion. Anything less will simply see an increase in the noise we don’t need.
