Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou revealed that he believes that the media in Scotland have been condescending towards him after he took charge at the club. He insisted that the media will not affect his mindset and will continue with his methods. Postecoglou has found life in Scotland hard as he takes charge of a transforming Celtic side. They are currently six points behind Rangers who are leading the table at the moment.
“To be honest, the only thing I don’t like is the condescending nature of the questions,” Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou said. “That somehow I don’t understand that if we don’t win games of football, I don’t understand the magnitude of the football club, that somehow I am in charge of this rebuild and I have no idea of what the ramifications are if I don’t get it right. It is not frustration. If the intent is to be condescending towards me and who I am in my career then I guess they are achieving their point.”
“Maybe that is the intent, maybe people just want to be condescending, that’s up to them,” he added. “In terms of pressure, criticism, or scrutiny, that is fair enough, that is what people who are passionate about the game will do when they analyze the team and I have no issues with that. In terms of calling it early, I see no reason why you would declare someone a champion in September when you have more than 30 games to go.”
