Ange Postecoglou has refused to offer excuses about his team selections or conceding from a set-piece tonight at Tynecastle. Celtic fell to a late goal from John Souttar but Postecoglou didn’t question the decision to award the free-kick, the lack of a card to Andy Halliday or the fact Celtic had a perfectly valid goal ruled out.
🗣️”We can’t afford time, we’ve got to start getting results and turning our good play into results.”

The manager needs to be supported by the Board. The first team need five players in the door as soon as possible in order to be competitive for Europe. A central midfielder, a centre back, a right back, a winger and a goalkeeper are all needed in the next few days or else this could end up being another horrorshow of a season.
