As diplomatically as possible Ange Postecoglou has slapped down criticism of the Celtic defence.

That is the defence that has let in six goals in 10 SPFL matches, the same as Dundee United and better than the other 10 teams in the SPFL.

With a goal difference of +17 compared to the +9 of the league leaders it is clear that Celtic are doing something right at both ends of the park.

All but one of the goals conceded, away to Aberdeen, has cost the club points but with three wins on the bounce it looks like Celtic are getting things right on the park.

Celtic haven’t lost a goal since returning from the international break but one reporter at today’s broadcast media conference wanted to look into the past when he questioned the hoops boss.

Look, I know people keep harping on about it but we obviously played two very good teams in Betis and Leverkusen who put four past us. But aside from that, teams have struggled to score against us, so I don’t think it’s been that much of an issue as others have made out.

It sounded like the question came from Keith Downie, the Newcastle based reporter for Sky Sports.

Celtic’s left-back has been rotating almost on a game-by-game basis but the remainder of the defence and goalkeeper has remained the same over the last six matches.
