McFadden in awe of Postecoglou’s work

Former Scotland legend James McFadden believes Ange Postecoglou has done an inspirational job so far at Celtic.

The former Everton man insists the challenges in the Australian’s way have just made the body of work even more impressive.

McFadden said: “When Ange Postecoglou came in and he spoke about importance over result, I started thinking ‘wow you’re at a club where the result is everything. You have to win’

“But what he meant by that was, if the team performs as he wants them to, then they’ll get the results.

“Over the season, they’ve shown that if you work together, it’ll all come.

“Losing three of the first six games was far from ideal. He came into a place which needs a total rebuild.

“Some players wanted to leave, others had already left. That’s a tough environment to come in and drive your message across straight away.

“He’s dealt with that well. He said ‘anybody who doesn’t want to be here can leave’.

“Sometimes you hear that from managers and they don’t really mean it, but he’s shown that he meant it.

“It’s just the beginning for me.”
