The Celtic Park DJ was having a bit of “lucky” fun during half-time of last night’s 3-0 win over Livingston.

With Ange Postecoglou‘s Hoops in command after goals from Greg Taylor, Daizen Maeda and Kyogo Furuhashi, the person on the tunes was up for causing some discrete mischief.

One of their chosen songs during the interval was ‘Lucky Man’ by The Verve.

The 1997 hit written by Richard Ashcroft includes the lyrics: “But I’m a lucky man, with fire in my hands.”

The song choice was noted by a number of fans in attendance, including our YouTube channel’s Stevie, who tweeted: “Tears at the Celtic Park DJ playing ‘Lucky Man’ at half time”.

The reference goes back to some comments made by Rangers boss Michael Beale at the start of the year.

As reported by the Daily Record, Beale said: “We don’t spend the most money in this country. They (Celtic) spend a lot more money than us. So Ange is a lucky man because he’s spent a lot of money.

“He’s a good coach – but he’s spent a lot of money.”

Postecoglou replied in typical fashion, agreeing with Beale.

“I agree, mate, I’m an extremely lucky man,” he said, as reported by the Scotsman.

“I work for a fantastic football club with fantastic people. I’ve got a beautiful family. I’ve been doing this for 25 years now and long may it continue.”

Postecoglou was at it again on Sunday too when discussing Aaron Mooy’s contribution for Celtic.

The rivalry between Postecoglou and Beale is there for everyone to see, but it has stayed relatively friendly so far.

Nonetheless, it seems pretty clear that there’s a bit of needle between the two. And we could probably have a decent guess at who’s going to come out on top.

Making Ange Postecoglou angry doesn’t often end well.

Now let’s get some Kylie Minogue looked out for the next time Rangers visit Celtic Park.
