Expert: Ange Postecoglou furious with Celtic players after what I've seen

Ange Postecoglou was furious with his Celtic players after their failure to win while in Australia.

That’s according to former Hoops hitman Frank McAvennie, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the club’s recent trip down under.

Celtic lost 2-1 to Sydney FC and drew 0-0 with Everton during their recent visit to Australia.

The Hoops have several players away at the World Cup but Postecoglou was still able to name a strong squad in both games.

McAvennie insists the Hoops boss was furious with his players for failing to win.

“Ange wasn’t happy, by all accounts, you could see that,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“That’s great. I got told when I went to Celtic that we don’t play friendlies, that’s what I was brought up with.

“They went all the way to Australia and they went to win. They didn’t do that and apparently, he let the players know about it.

“That’s Ange, he never stops and he doesn’t want his players to stop either. Friendly or not, you have to win if you play for Celtic so he will have been disappointed.

“People were saying it was a long trip home for them, give over. They were all in business class or first class, that flight is a lot easier when you aren’t in cattle class.

“I did that flight when I was with Scotland, let me tell you half of us were nearly injured when we landed. I’m telling you, those boys will be fine.”
