Former Celt Armstrong Oko-Flex has rubbed salt into his old club’s wounds by coming off the bench to add a sixth goal for West Ham at Paradise this afternoon. That makes it three goals conceded by both of the Celtic goalkeepers Vasilis Barkas and Scott Bain. Dear knows which one Ange Postecoglou will opt to start on Wednesday night in Jutland.
The FC Midtjylland striker will be rubbing their hands watching this defensive horror show from Celtic this afternoon. The blame can’t be placed on the manager who is late to the ‘party’ and has only had a few weeks to work with the squad and if he didn’t know before Ange certainly knows now that the defensive side of this squad is nowhere near good enough to compete.
Dom McKay said he planned to surprise and delight the Celtic support. Well no-one was surprised today with that shocking defensive display and the only people delighted will be the Danes we’re playing on Wednesday night. Ange needs a miracle to get us through that one.
Time to smell the coffee, Celtic.
Chris Sutton is spot on here with where the blame lies.
