Normally when he gets a stupid question during a media conference Ange Postecoglou lets his feelings be known by putting mate into his reply/put down.
The Celtic boss lives up to the stereotype of the straight talking Aussie but does have a softer side and will often help out a reporter that hasn’t managed to get his question out in the right order.
Tomorrow night Celtic take on the fourth best team in Germany needing to take a point to retain hope of progressing in the Europa League.
It is an exciting tie with many angles, back in September Celtic lost 4-0 at home to the German side with tomorrow’s match offering a gauge to see what progress, if any, has been made.
Asking a character like Postecoglou about the match throws up all sorts of options and possibilities but for one reporter invited into today’s Zoom call there was a more pressing issue.
Hibs are upset that they are only getting 17,500 tickets for the League Cup Final, they took 10,000 to the semi. Presented with Ange Postecoglou before a Europa League tie a reporter wanted his thoughts on the Hibs ticket allocation!
Only in Scotland would that get asked. Imagine Pep rocking up at a press conference down South and some mad spotty journo asking him about ticket allocation? Hibs have got what they deserved after their pathetic turnout in the SF

Typical of SMSM trying to create a story where there is none! Focus on the football and report on that instead of making stuff up and peddling lies about mythical bids and tickets

Ange has got the Scottish press’ number. He’s far too smart for the lot of them.
