Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou revealed that Celtic will attack AZ Alkmaar despite their two-goal lead from the first leg. Celtic extended their unbeaten run to five with victory in the first leg. They will now look to extend it to seven after trashing St Mirren 6-0 at the weekend. Celtic have been scoring freely in their unbeaten run scoring 24 goals in six games.
“I think that is the best approach from us,” Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou said. “If we go there and try to defend for 90 minutes, I just think you are asking for trouble. They are a good team and we know at home they are going to be playing fairly high tempo and high-intensity football to score a goal.”
“We won’t change our approach, it is the best strategy for us,” he added. “If we sit back we are just going to invite pressure on ourselves. Our best football has been going the other way, going forward, and if we score goals, it puts more pressure on the opposition.”
Celtic handed indefinite bans to a group of supporters following a post on social media showing traveling fans singing racist songs about Kyogo Furuhashi.
“It doesn’t matter who it involves, we don’t need to be impressed. It just has to happen.” the boss added. “I don’t think Rangers acted because they wanted to impress anyone. I would like to think people see right and wrong and just deal with it. This doesn’t need endless debates on radio or television on what should happen and why it happened. It is wrong, we know it is wrong.”
