Hearts Boss Robbie Neilson’s Incredibly Short Memory

Listen to this nonsense from the bitter loser Robbie Neilson after last night’s match was settled by a Kyogo goal that the Sky Pundits other that Kris Boyd could not say that it was on or offside. Neilson’s team, you will remember beat Celtic on the opening day of the season thanks to a wrongly disallowed Celtic goal for offside, referee Bobby Madden failing to send off Halliday for a horrendous tackle on Celtic captain Callum McGregor and a Hearts winner scored from a free kick that should never have been awarded…you forgot about all that Robbie?

Ange was having none of that though, speaking on BBC Sportsound…

“It was a game with a fair bit on it which is great, it’s what you want for the supporters.

“We were just missing being more ruthless. At 1-0, the opposition are always in it but I think Joe [Hart] only had one save to really make, we defended very well I thought.

“On another day we’d take our opportunities and make the scoreline more reflective.
We’re going to have to break down defences at times but if teams want to get aggressive we have to move the ball quickly.

“That means the ref’s on three points, he’s still bottom of the league,” Ange’s response when told about Robbie Neilson’s remarkable take on last night’s game.

“If anyone thinks the ref decided that game they’re watching a different game to what I am, l think we should have won by more goals, that’s my analysis. He has his analysis, he can communicate it the way he wants, I’m communicating it the way I want.

“Ralston is probably the one that is the most concerning. For him to go off it’s probably something significant.

The plans for January haven’t changed one bit though. The plans are to bring players in.” – Ange Postecoglou on BBC Sportsound

Here’s the goal that was wrongly ruled out for offside back at the end of July, strangely not mentioned at all by the mainstream media and a perfect example of what Celtic benefits from having such a strong and vibrant Celtic Fan Media…

Here’s what supporters watching on Sky Sports have to put up with…incidentally this tweet is from The Celtic Way, the Celtic supporter not those imposters from the Herald/Glasgow Times dressing their content up in Celtic Fan Media clothing and charging Celtic Supporters for it, edited by the former Daily Record Rangers blogger and a sister title to Rangers Review…
