Ange Postecoglou spoke to the media today ahead of a trip to Dingwall tomorrow night to take on Ross County as Celtic begin their defense of the League Cup, the first trophy won by the Celtic manager last December by defeating the Hibs by a score 2: 1. final.

There were fewer questions at today’s press conference, only eight, and it doesn’t look like any of the Celtic fan media was present. It looks like four mainstream media journalists were asking questions to the Celtic manager, and the guy who asked the third question of the day had a nightmare.
He phrased his question to mean that only Ross County’s Mulkey McKay is still at the Premier League club since Ange walked in Celtic’s door. A mainstream media journalist asked Ange this question…
From the day you walked into Celtic Park, only Malky McKay still plays for the same Scottish Premier League club. Is this an indication of the transient nature of what you’re talking about in terms of rapid turnover of managers?

Ange immediately pointed out that Robbie Neilson is still in Hearts unless the hack knows something he doesn’t! The Celtic manager could also mention Livingston’s David Martindale, who raved about Angers yesterday, or even Callum Davidson, who won both the League Cup and the Scottish Cup, and saved St Johnstone from relegation last season and that’s it. still in work.
Anji’s response for the protocol was as follows:
“Yes. Robbie Neilson is still there, too, unless you have news that I don’t. As I said, this is the nature of football in the current environment and I don’t see it changing because there is such a real and visceral reaction to things these days because there are so many opinions and so much outside pressure and testing on everything. what happens.

“In the past, when I first started driving, I said that you can wait until Monday before the pressure starts, but now, after the official whistle, something is already happening. It’s just the world we live in. Most people, when looking for some kind of fix, think change is the best way to go. Such is the nature of the roles we play. Every manager understands this.”
With only a dozen clubs, this question was so inaccurate that it was even a little embarrassing. And Celtic supporters who listened to today’s You Tube media conference noticed the flaws in this hack. Here are some examples of their views on the incident….

“Ange has to correct Scottish sports journalists for the way they do their job… just imagine.”
“Shows the standard of Scottish journalism that the guy formulates his whole question around how many coaches have been on the job since Ange was here and Ange should correct him. For heaven’s sake, there are only 12 teams in the league! Qualitative research, mate.
“Big Ange keeps the Scottish media in his back pocket, they’re all in awe of him.”
“I say this all the time, but Celtic really need to give these clowns less time for questions and more time for the fan media. They ask real questions instead of reaching for the headline.”
“What is this guy about? Martindale is still at Livi, Neilson is still at Hearts.”
Still at work. Livingston’s manager David Martindale led his team to victory over Celtic. Andrew Milligan
“These questions are idiotic from the media who keep telling us it’s the same club at Ibrox. Shameful.
“David Martindale, Robbie Neilson, Callum Davidson are still at work since Ange came. WHAT A BAD question from this journalist.”
“Robbie is still there…” Big Ange keeps the dolls on the right side of the facts.
“Ange is more informed than the guy who prepared the question about managers is still in office. Ange is calm but knowledgeable.
“What was that Jack Ross question along with the manager leaving question, these people are being paid to do this nonsense, absolutely pathetic and terrible journalism in Scotland.”
“Who is this guy who asks questions about trainers at work and enjoys it while it lasts? What does it have to do with football in a week when we play in Ross County, ()Rangers and Real Madrid? The Scottish media are complete clowns who think they are football experts.”
And the video recently appeared on You Tube, so we expect many more comments like this to follow!
