Video – Ange on Bitton ‘Appenin’ and unlikely ‘Star of the Show’ Gavin Strachan

Ange Postecoglou spoke to the media today, starting by dismissing the first question from mainstream journalist who wanted to know on the eve of a huge Europa League the Celtic manager’s views on the ticket allocation for the League Cup Final. Ange, as we have already reported, handles that brilliantly.

As is becoming a trend, the best questions are the ones at the end, and they of course are now coming from the Celtic Fan Media. The question on Kyogo’s pressing leading to the winner on Saturday against St Johnstone and referencing Ange’s philosophy as outlined in his book was interesting, as was the manager’s response and the other fan media question tackled the raging debate on here – the impact that Nir Bitton is having on the team.

Gavin Strachan has emerged as the star of the show in the club’s Christmas video and Ange comments on that praising his often criticised coach and refusing to go anywhere with any Christmas jumper comments.

Anyone watching this will understand that Celtic will not be sitting in tomorrow against Leverkusen – Ange stating that he’d be surprised if there were no goals scored – and he is going to test his side against a very good opponent who he believes are effectively a Champions League quality side.

Here’s the latest media conference from Ange Postecoglou and well done the Celtic Fan media for improving the standard of questioning yet again…
