knows that time is something that is never on the side of a manager.

Three competitive games in and the Australian is waiting on his first win since taking over from last season’s failed management team.

Tonight it was Hearts, on Wednesday it was Midtjylland but the truth is that this sub-standard side is beating itself.

After playing in every match so far this season Postecoglou decided to drop Stephen Welsh to the bench, pairing Carl Starfelt up with Nir Bitton’s who’s stupidity at home to Midtjylland opened the door to the bang average Danes.

Within 10 minutes tonight Steven opened the scoring as Starfelt and Bitton were cut wide open.

Tony Ralston provided a moment of brilliance to draw Celtic level but like Callum McGregor’s goal in it was to prove pointless as John Soutar scored the winner from a late free kick.

Celtic look no closer towards finding a team than when they played in the first pre-season match in Wales.

The pressure is building, the spotlight is on Postecoglou and the board with goodwill in short supply as the new season looks to be a continuation of last season’s misery. With returning it will be impossible for Celtic to switch off the noise as protests become real inside and around the ground.
