Ange Postecoglou reacts to Rangers' Sydney Super Cup withdrawal - 'I'm not going to get disappointed'
Rangers confirmed their withdrawal on Thursday – in doing so ruling out a first overseas derby with Celtic – and blamed organisers for being ‘unwilling to meet their obligation’, a claim tournament promoters TEG Sport and Left Field Live have refuted.
When asked whether he was disappointed about the news or whether it had nothing to do with him, the former Australia head coach said: "It's got to do with me because I'm the manager of a club that's going there and looking forward to it.
"Apart from the fact that I think it's going to be great for our football club because I know how passionate people are about this club and football in general, for me it's a trip back home. So I am certainly looking forward to it.
"Disappointment? Disappointment for me is about things I can control. I'm not going to get disappointed over things that I have got nothing to do with."
