Spare a thought tonight for Ange Postecoglou, the most directly affected person at Celtic as a result of all the uncertainty that has now been tossed our way.
He must wonder just what sort of shit-show he’s taken on here at this oh-so dysfunctional football club.
But Ange ought to just shut it all out. Whatever’s going on elsewhere at Celtic, he has already made it clear where his responsibilities start and finish. He knows what his job is and he knows that there are people he can absolutely rely on to have his back.
We are backing the manager.
That’s it, that’s the strength of it.
We support the work being done by Ange Postecoglou.
If he needs to take strength from anything he should take it from that.
This good man, this genuine man, this decent man, has our confidence.
Woe betide the people above him if they make his job more difficult than it has to be in the next few months.
They will not be forgiven for it, not by this generation of fans.
Ange and McKay were supposed to be the unifying figures at Celtic, the proof that we were moving forward.
One of those men is no longer in the building.
The one who’s left must be allowed to proceed on his own terms; no interference from above.
No imposing idiotic overseers on him; Ange has his own vision and he will not compromise it and nor should he.
The next few weeks are going to be even more taxing for this guy than they already were.
Whatever has gone wrong at Celtic, the relationship between the fans and the board has taken another mammoth hit.
But that should not concern him at all.
We have your back, Ange, you and the team will get the support and encouragement they deserve.
Those elsewhere in the club aren’t your concern.
