According to McLeod it was a catastrophic defeat for Ange Postecoglou to deal with in just his second competitive match in charge of the club.
It was a huge defeat but as the Australian pointed out catastrophic it wasn’t. Celtic will survive, administration and liquidation are highly unlikely.

It was an unusually bold line of questioning from McLeod who is possibly still suffering from Scotland’s first round exit from the European Championships last month.
Given two home matches out of three and with three of the four group members qualifying for the knock-out stage the tournament had almost been created to ensure Scotland progressed.
One thing I will say about Postecoglou is that he treats the media with the contempt they deserve particularly when they conduct an interview in this way – the wording of those questions was embarrassing

Fantastic response !!
Scottish media are the poison that brings in far to much negativity to the Scottish game & some fans heads !!
