“There is much to like” – Chris Sutton makes remarkable Postecoglou comparison

The Celtic fans are certainly enjoying their football at the moment.

Four wins in five games, eleven goals scored and the lion’s share of possession in every match, the Hoops fans are confident that the tide is turning in Glasgow.

With their main rivals looking less and less convincing, especially after their 2-2 draw with Aberdeen at Ibrox, Celtic have a massive opportunity to top the league for 24 hours if the defeat Livingston at Celtic Park this afternoon.

But with all the positivity, former Celtic striker, Chris Sutton, have also urged caution for the Hoops fans.

In his weekly column, Sutton has a sobering message but also makes startling comparisons between Postecoglou and a manager Sutton knows all too well, “Celtic are going to have setbacks in the coming weeks. 

“Patience is key and people can’t get carried away with the recent run.

“Postecoglou is keeping heads down and people grounded.

“It’s very much the Martin O’Neill approach, but there is much to like at the moment, with individuals such as Carter-Vickers really making a difference.”

Sutton was also very complementary about Celtic’s American boy, Carter Vickers in his Colin and believes that Postecoglou, much like Martin O’Neill did in his time, has got his recruitment absolutely spot on in the summer, “It’s so important for a manager to get his signings right and, by and large, he’s done a cracking job in that respect.

“Carter-Vickers for a start. Solid and no nonsense. Hart has started well bar a couple of mistakes. Starfelt is improving. Josip Juranovic looks decent.

“At the top end of the pitch, the signings of Kyogo Furuhashi and Jota have lit up Parkhead with Liel Abada also making a reasonable start to life at Celtic.”

It’s little wonder the Celtic fans have a lot to look forward after the first quarter of the season and with momentum building with each passing game, it does look like Parkhead side are becoming serious title challengers.
