Ange Postecoglou was in confident mood as he faced the broadcast media to prepare for tomorrow’s Europa League tie against Bayer Leverkusen.
For reasons hard to justify the first question thrown at the Celtic boss was about the allocation of tickets for a match in a few weeks time.
More seriously and relevant to tomorrow’s match Tom Rogic, Carl Starfelt and Giorgos Giakoumakis will be missing which means that the side will be on similar lines to the one that beat St Johnstone at Hampden on Saturday. Stephen Welsh has recovered from a ‘whack on the cheekbone’.
There was an underlying feeling of confidence from the Celtic boss, quiet confidence but not shouting the odds about what his team is going to do.
Since the early days of the season the team has become Postecoglou’s side, they play to his template with the manager excited by the direction progress is moving in.
In comparison to the first question one of the questions from fan media (14 minutes) highlighted how the pressure exerted on Zander Clark by Kyogo Furuhashi created the only goal of the game on Saturday. Postecoglou agreed that it was an example of his ideaology about the game.
Ange finished up with “I’d be surprised if there wasn’t goals in the game, lets put it that way.”
