Celtic Boss Snubbed As Manager Of The Month For Man Who Did Ibrox Huge Favour.

Image for Celtic Boss Snubbed As Manager Of The Month For Man Who Did Ibrox Huge Favour.

Ange Postecoglou had an outstanding month in January by any acceptable standard. He was the best manager in the country during that time by a country mile. Apart from everything else, he took his side to Ibrox and left with a nine point lead. He is unbeaten.

It was bad enough having to stomach the idea that Scotland’s outstanding footballer at the moment, Aaron Mooy, didn’t win the player of the month award. I could see the argument for giving it to Nisbet of Hibs.

But where is the justification for making the manager of the month Robbie Neilson?

He drew two matches, which is one more than the Celtic boss.

Whatever next? Making him manager of the month for February as well?

When you consider how this month started for him, with his bizarre tactical switcheroo against the Ibrox club at home, and subsequent heavy defeat, it looks like the SPFL is deliberately trolling us.

The press seems to think beating a hapless Hibs and an Aberdeen team who had just been knocked out of the cup by Darvel merits this award.

But Ange Postecoglou was the manager of the month and that’s the bottom line.

It is preposterous to say otherwise. Neilson’s getting praise for his side scoring 13 goals. Wow. We scored 17. Like Hearts, we kept clean sheets in five out of our six games.

Honest to God, I don’t know how they come up with this stuff or what criteria they use for it, but Ange Postecoglou has been done up for the second month in a row. Last month they gave the award to The Mooch. Of course.

I am only surprised he didn’t win it again this time around, but Neilson I guess deserved his reward for starting February in such sterling fashion.

    So not only is the game itself rigged to f**k up here we now have managers who lose games heavily without his team putting in an effort getting manager of the month.
    Well we now know big Ange is out of the running for manager of year,and take your pick from these 3 FAILURES who will get it,MARTINJAIL the Poundland Escobar,Neilson the guy that does more greetin than a Christmas card,and the sevco press favourite Wartface.

    The bottom line is that We have to destroy Sevco on the 26th. Do that and the bubble will not only burst, but the whole Media Ipox camp will collapse in confidence. The MIBs will have to go into overdrive with VAR to keep them in the League.

      @ Nick66 And btw, that’s how it’s no them that’s my concern for this cup final, if we play the way we can. It’s the decisions that are gonnae be made by these officials and VAR.

  • Nick66 says:

    PS, if our Bhoys don’t get POTM, then Nisbet is a good sub. Lad performed well and sometimes, although I wanted Mooy to get it, if it’s on merit fair enough. He did have a good few games.
