It would be an understatement to say that Ange Postecoglou was successful in winning over the Celtic fans quickly. Even though the Australian spent just a couple of years at Parkhead, he managed to establish himself as one of the most popular managers in the club's history. Of course, the fact that he won five trophies, including a historic domestic treble, helped. But there was more to it.

A lot of it was to do with how Postecoglou carried himself. He seemed to understand what being a fan felt like. In a world full of repetitive interviews from managers, the Australian was a breath of fresh air.

And then there was the style of football that he championed at Parkhead. It was wonderful to say the least and it was an enjoyable couple of seasons if you were a Celtic fan.

Postecoglou always seems like a calm and composed figure. But as Tottenham Hotspur fans learned, and Celtic fans already would have known, the Australian can have his moments on the touchline.

Postecoglou repeats Celtic incident at Tottenham Hotspur

As reported by The Herald, during the game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, cameras panned to Postecoglou, who vented to his underperforming Tottenham Hotspur players. The manager angrily stated, "stop passing backwards." 

It was pretty much a repeat of something that happened at Celtic during Postecoglou's time at the club. He was once heard screaming at Stephen Welsh during a cup tie against Raith Rovers, when the centre-back had needlessly passed the ball back to Joe Hart.

Postecoglou's mood would not have improved following the result at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea walked out with a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur, making it more difficult for them to finish in one of the top four spots this season. Let's see how they manage to finish the campaign.
