Alan Brazil has performed a u-turn on Ange Postecoglou, claiming that he knew the Australian would come good as Celtic manager.
Just under a year ago Celtic announced that their 106 day search to replace Neil Lennon had come to a conclusion with a deal agreed with the manager of Yokohoma Marinos.
Brazil was live on air with Ally McCoist when the announcement came through, responding to the giggles of his colleague the former Spurs and Manchester United striker was dismissive of Postecoglou, taking delight in struggling to pronounce his name.
With Celtic six points clear at the top of the SPFL and Steven Gerrard bailing out of Ibrox the stage is set for Postecoglou to win the title in his first season in charge of Celtic- turning around last season’s 25 point gap between the top two.
Tuning in to TalkSPORT this morning, The National reports:
This morning Brazil was reminded of his initial comments on Postecoglou as co-host Ally McCoist demanded managers be backed in tough times “like you (Brazil) did with Ange”.
Former Scotland striker Brazil shut-down the jibe as he claimed to know the appointment would work out. And he added he would go and meet Postecoglou in the near future.
Brazil said: “I knew he would come good. I knew my man would come good. I’ll be going to see him soon.”
Despite losing three of his first six matches Celtic are unbeaten in their last 27 SPFL matches with just four matches drawn in that run.
? ??????: “Is this a wind up? Where do they come up with these guys from?”
? ???????: “I shouldn’t wallow in your despair but I’m loving every minute.”
