Last season’s Scottish Premiership winners, Celtic, opened the 2022/2023 season with a hard-fought 2-0 home win over Aberdeen at Parkhead, successfully starting their campaign for another league title.
Though they bagged three points, Celtic’s finishing was clearly not as clinical as any top team would want, and almost everyone, including the press, picked up on that.
Coach Ange Postecoglou had a couple of things to straighten out regarding his side’s “sloppy” period, where the Gers somehow couldn’t keep up with their opponents during the game.
Responding to whether his side would improve in their performance as the season progresses, Ange said he didn’t “buy into that” because the season is already in progress.
According to the Australian, it’s normal to temporarily lose form during a game, but what matters is whether you get back on track and improve your performance, which Celtic did.
Postecoglou reasons that his side should be focused throughout the game and correct their mistakes faster, hoping that with time, they will improve on the latter.
“…hopefully, every game we will get better and better,” Ange stated.
With Rangers in a race to possibly retake the title they lost last season, Celtic need to give more than just 100%, so it’s understandable that Postecoglou focused more on the mistakes his side made than their win at the end.
