Really new thread worthy?

Anyway...he better win some silverware and beat Rangers or he won't last. There is no settling in season at Celtic.

You mean he won't be able to stay if Celtic finish 8th, that's a bit harsh.......just wouldn't happen here.

Watching the  domestic cup in Japan, this isn't news, but they're playing at a level way above us.

A 6-2 home friendly loss to West Ham is not a disaster for Ange, it’s a friendly after all. They drew 1-1 at home to Midtjylland in Europe qualifier and now travel there for second leg, which Celtic would be expected to win..should have won the home leg.

No dramas yet, but Ange could do with a win soon.

On the bright side, Awer Mabil scored!

The defending on the winner had shades of old Lucas Neill with his never ending hands up asking for offside instead of trying to defend.

Going to be interesting to see if Celtic have the patience for Ange Ball, at least it is more fun that Arnie Ball

Didn’t see the match but the stats are interesting. Midtjylland only had 37% possession to Celtic’s 63%, but had an xG of 1.60 to Celtic’s 0.24, and had 12 shots to Celtic’s 5.

I’m guessing it went a bit like their 6-2 friendly loss to West Ham. I watched some of that game and Celtic looked great on the ball but super flimsy at the back. Every time West Ham countered they looked like walking it in.

So do Celtic still have a chance to qualify for the Europa League or is that it for European competition this year?

They can compete for a place in the Europa League

They will face FK Jablonec from the Czech Republic

pretty ordinary crowd.....are there any restrictions?

Yes, that was the maximum permissible crowd.

Ange started off with a loss? I wonder if the Celtic fans are already writing #AngeOut.

On Twitter the majority seemed to be happy to give him a bit of time. They can see what he is trying to do.

If anything, any blame is being directed at the board for not signing players. Can imagine that will change if he keeps losing. Europa qualifiers coming up in the next few weeks and Old Firm at the end of the month. Would expect them to turn if they aren't competitive by then.

Celtic haven't finished outside of the top two since season 94-95. Ange wouldn't have to worry about finishing lower than 2nd as if it looked like they would he would be sacked before end of season.

SPL going to be competitive by the looks of it. Rangers lose their game to Dundee United

It’s too early to say. I can think of a few season where someone other than Rangers or Celtic have been 1st until late November, I think Hearts did it a few seasons back.

Could be wrong but I would expect Rangers and Celtic to pull away again by December.

Heats are my team north of the border by the way as been to games at Tynecastle. Would love to see them stay top as long as poss.

Just commenting because Celtic (under the anti-defensive coach Postecoglou and supposed saviour of Australian football) lost their first game of the season in years.

6-0 for his SPL debut with his Japanese import getting a hat trick, not bad! Admittedly against a recently promoted team, but still.

He really needs to qualify for Europa league too after the UCL capitulation.

Ange's Celtic lost in his SPL debut against a newly promoted club last week.
