It seems like the BBC were terribly negative in their interview with Ange, an interview he handled with his typical brilliance.
Responding to several loaded questions, he emphatically denied that we were wasteful, frustrated, lack a cutting edge and that the game was heading for a draw.
We, apparently, are the only team not allowed to wait until late to win.
As you’ll have read in my own assessment of the game, I thought we were more than value for the victory, I didn’t think it looked, at any point, like we wouldn’t get the victory and although I think we do need to start putting more chances away I cannot fault a Celtic team which knew that it had the tools to get this job done and kept doing it.
It is typical of the BBC to ask such idiotic and negative questions.
None of us is in the least doubt any longer as to the particular leanings of the “national broadcaster” whose open letter kissing and making up with Ibrox was one of the most sycophantic boak inducing things many of us have read in a long time.
Celtic is fair game for this lot.
But Ange is excellent at handling these guys and corrected the negative discourse at every step.
He made it clear that he thought we were the only side likely to win, and he is correct. They offered nothing to trouble us except for the corner and the late free kick; we were the dominant team and our performance fully merited the three points.
Ange knows how these people work now.
Nothing they say or do will surprise the big guy in the least.
He is able for them. He seems almost keen for the battle at times.
Nevertheless, the media continues to be shockingly one sided and that the national broadcaster is now one of the worst culprits is both well know and appalling at the same time.
Frankly, if these people aren’t prepared to be objective I don’t know why he bothers to talk to them at all.
Maybe one day he’ll decide not to.
