Ange is miles off here- the one blind spot for Postecoglou

From the start Celtic fans have appreciated the honesty of Ange Postecoglou. He has promised to work hard to get his ideas over without making any outrageous promises.

After a season when the fans felt increasingly distanced from the club there has been a freshness about his communications after the extremes of Neil Lennon.

One player however links both managers and there is no getting away from Leigh Griffiths. His strained relationship with the fans took on a new element earlier this month when he was subject to a Police investigation.

No criminality was established but for many Celtic fans it was the straw that broke the camel’s back, another unnecessary distraction from someone who’s professionalism has been questioned.

Griffiths missed last years pre-season preparations in France and never managed to complete a full 90 minutes over the course of the season.

Postecoglou doesn’t seem to appreciate the level of anger that some fans have towards Griffiths, it’s not a run of the mill issue that a few goals will resolve.

The new Celtic boss may be diplomatic in public but on this issue the well of goodwill ran dry some time ago.
