Ange Postecoglou backs Scotland and makes fans claim

Former Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has said that he expects Scotland to do the business against Hungary on Sunday before admitting to missing the supporters in Scottish football.

The Australian was in Germany as part of ITV’s coverage of Euro 2024 as Romania faced Belgium.

When asked about whether he felt Steve Clarke’s side could get out the group, the Spurs manager firmly supported the Scots ahead of their must win clash against Switzerland.

“I have to declare I am on the Scotland bandwagon. I followed them for a couple of years when I was at Celtic, obviously.

“They obviously got blown away in that first game. It’s always hard that first game of the tournament – it could go either way. The hosts could be nervous, but Germany were flying, and that is probably as passive as I have seen the Scottish team in quite a long time.

“The strength they showed in the second game is their capacity to run, with energy. If they can bring that, they can cause any team problems. They have talked about making history, I think they are a good bet for that tomorrow.”

Ange continued highlighting Celtic skipper Callum McGregor alongside Premier League stars Billy Gilmour, Scott McTominay, Andy Robertson and John McGinn as being the instigators to Scotland’s style of play, which involves running and harassing opponents.

Laura Woods, who was hosting the panel in Berlin, then asked whether Ange missed the supporters in Scotland as the Tartan Army’s brilliant support in Germany has been acclaimed by locals.

“I do. That is part of the reason I am on the bandwagon! When the national team plays, they are great – and the good thing is that since Steve Clarke has taken over, the team represents them really well. It is a credit to them, and they will play a big part tomorrow.”
