Celtic 'attitude' has to be questioned after BBC update - Campbell
Pressure is growing on Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou ahead of tonight’s Europa League clash against Bayer Leverkusen, according to Kevin Campbell.
The former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, questioned the 56-year-old’s “tactics” and the “attitude” of his changing room in light of recent form.
The Hoops have won just two of their previous seven fixtures across all competitions.
Injuries to key players such as Callum McGregor, Kyogo Furuhashi, Greg Taylor, James Forrest, Giorgos Giakoumakis and Christopher Jullien have taken their toll.
Ange Postecoglou’s side are currently sixth in the Scottish Premiership and six points off top.
Speaking to BBC Sport (September 29) the Bhoys boss rubbished the “narrative” that his side were “struggling”.

When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of Celtic’s recent form, Campbell said: “At the end of the day six points can be made up pretty quickly.
“But, when you are Celtic football club you have got to be winning week in, week out. There can be no excuses. You cannot put it all down to injuries.
“They should be winning more games than they are right now. It is as simple as that.
“Is their attitude right? Are the tactics right? All of these things will be questioned.
“There is pressure growing on Postecoglou and rightly so because Celtic are a huge club and they should not settle for being second best.
“It doesn’t help when Rangers are top of the table. They need to pull their finger out in the next few games.”
