An absolute nightmare- even Richard Gordon can’t defend his BBC colleague’s questions to Ange

Richard Gordon has tried to bail out Alasdair Lamont after his nightmare performance at Ange Postecoglou’s media conference following the 2-0 win over Ferencvaros.

Lamont had the key task of asking questions about the match to the Celtic boss but seemed to be on something of a downer, as if his favourite team had conceded an equaliser due to a blunder from their goalkeeper.

A home win for a Scottish club in European competition should be a reason for some minor celebration, especially after the SPFL’s representatives in the Europa League both lost their first two matches. Not Lamont.

After questioning Postecoglou whether he thought his side had been worthy of the win he opted to downplay the performance of Kyogo Furuhashi.

It made for uncomfortable listening as the Celtic boss snapped back before going on to answer the question in more diplomatic terms.

Afterwards Gordon was quick to step in.

Well, Al had a nightmare at the start of that didn’t he? An absolute nightmare. I think what we need to do is make sure that Ange gets to listen into the podcast to hear how positive we all were about Celtic’s performance.

Yeah, if you’re gonna get the wrong side of the manager, it is good to do it when he’s in a good frame of mind when he’s just had a win like that.

Radio Scotland will have pre-match access to Postecoglou at Saturday’s match at home to St Johnstone.
