Over previous Christmas’ the Celtic support has given their hearts over to Ronny Deila and Brendan Rodgers.
Neil Lennon never quite got the same emotional support but in Budapest last night fans were declaring their unconditional love for (Ange) Postecoglou. The Wham hit from the eighties seems to be timeless with most managers able to be slotted into the punchline.

Six months ago Postecoglou was still something of a mystery to most Celtic fans, his name only rung a bell with those that had kept tabs on the international career of Tom Rogic.
Neither Australia or the J-League is renowned for the quality of managers but after 106 days looking for a replacement to Lennon Celtic reached an agreement with the then boss of Yokohama F Marinos.
Ange has been every inch the Aussie; blunt, straight talking and not afraid to fire back at his ‘mates’ in the media. On the pitch the football is picking up but glitches like Livingston remain.
Wins over Ferencvaros and Dundee will go a long way to reducing anxiety and fears as the vital Christmas fixtures approach.
