Journalist’s Ange Postecoglou ‘miracle’ claim will excite Celtic fans

It is safe to say that Ange Postecoglou’s start to life at Celtic has been mixed. There have been glimpses of how brilliant this side can be when performing at the top of their game. But for the most part, the results have left a lot to be desired. Currently, the Hoops find themselves sitting sixth in the Scottish Premiership table after eight league games and at the moment of their Europa League group after the first two games.

This was always expected to be a transitional season though after Celtic had finished trophyless and 25 points behind the Rangers in the previous campaign. And it must also be pointed out that the squad is not the deepest at the moment and needs a few more additions at least.

Also, Postecoglou has been known for his slow starts at clubs before his teams come into their own. Celtic fans would definitely be hoping for the same. Thus, journalist Vince Rugari’s comments should excite them.

While speaking with 67 Hail Hail, he said:

“At some point there’s usually a miracle result, a late winner, some kind of big event or moment, where they stick to the style, even if the logical part part of their brain tells them ‘this isn’t getting us anywhere’.

“And it yields something. It yields the results, and that becomes like a moment of realisation. When the whole group sees that if we do what Ange says, the dividends are actually going to come.

“I’m sure that moment will come for Celtic.”

Celtic have endured a tough start to their season under the management of Postecoglou

Celtic could definitely need a miracle if they are to turn things around this season and challenge for titles.

It was always bound to be a difficult campaign and perhaps it was the six-game win streak earlier in the season that had raised the expectations a bit too high. Over those six games, the Hoops managed to outscore their opponents 24 to 4.

In the last nine games, Celtic have won just thrice. But there have been some positive signs recently and hopefully, when most of the squad is fit and back available, they will start performing and producing results once again.

One thing that Postecoglou definitely needs at the moment is time and patience. He has proved in the past that he can turn teams around. Now let’s see if he can do that at Celtic as well.
