‘Football Scotland’ has once again deliberately misrepresented the Celtic manager.


Tonight at his presser, Ange Postecoglou said a VAR call for offside is exactly what the system is designed for.

What he didn’t say – at all – was that he agreed with the decision to cut off Jota’s goal, although that is the interpretation that the Daily Record’s online publication, Football Scotland, has chosen for his words.

“Ange Postecoglou admits he had ‘no problem’ with VAR intervening to rule out Jota’s effort in the 2-1 win at Motherwell,” the opening paragraph reads.

What a deliberate misrepresentation of his words, as written by someone named Euan Robertson.

Read what the big guy actually said. It’s crystal clear.

“It was a nice goal, but if it’s offside, then it’s offside. I have no problem with VAR, just use it when you need it. It’s the perfect example if it’s offside. I haven’t seen it but it’s a good time to use it.

That’s a far cry from what this paragraph represents it as saying.

It’s yet another example of the press trying to move the needle to give an evil decision as little control as possible. This is yet another major call that went against a club, our club, and they don’t want to recognize the clear pattern here.

They are welcome to ignore it as they wish.

But they are not allowed to drag our manager into their little sham by blatantly misrepresenting what he says. I suspect that when Ange takes a look at it, he will have a very different view.
