Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has questioned the “narrative” that his team are “struggling”

ahead of Thursday’s visit by Bayer Leverkusen.

The Australian’s side have only won twice in seven outings ahead of the Europa League Group G game in Glasgow.

Included in that was a 4-3 defeat by Real Betis in their opening group game.

“I know the narrative around us is that we are struggling, but in terms of our performances,

I don’t quite see it that way,” Postecoglou said.

“I think, in the last game away from home against Real Betis, a quality team, we gave a good account of ourselves,

we played some great football and dominated parts of the game. We know we have that performance in us and that’s

what we need have to do tomorrow night.”

And, although his side squandered an early two-goal lead in Spain, Postecoglu vowed to pursue similar tactics against

the side sitting second in the Bundesliga and who won their opening Europa League game 2-1 at home to

Hungarian champions Ferencvaros.

“To be honest, the only thing I don’t like is the condescending nature of questions that I somehow don’t understand that

I don’t understand the magnitude of the football club, that I’m in charge of this rebuild and I don’t understand what the

ramifications are if I don’t get things right,” he said.

“Leverkusen are a quality opponent and we’ll go out there with the same intention as we did against Betis away and that’s

to go at them and try to be aggressive and attacking. Hopefully, with the crowd behind us, we can create something special.”

Celtic sit sixth in the Scottish Premiership after being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Dundee United on Sunday.

However, their manager insisted that “preparations are good” despite “a pretty heavy schedule with a thin squad”.
