Celtic under Ange Postecoglou 'more exciting' than Brendan Rodgers

Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic side is more exciting than Brendan Rodgers treble winning sides, reckons Charlie Nicholas.

The former Parkhead star has been wowed by the impact of the Australian manager since arriving in the summer.

Celtic went top of the league last week after a scintillating showing in a 3-0 win over rivals Rangers before following it up with a 4-0 success at Motherwell.

Nicholas believes the turnaround achieved under Postecoglou has been most impressive.

"What Ange Postecoglou is building at Celtic is even more exciting than the team Brendan Rodgers had,” he wrote in his Daily Express column.

"I know some people will argue with me because Rodgers won treble after treble and also had that Invincible season.

"There's no denying Rodgers did take Celtic on, but he inherited a team that was used to winning and were already champions.

"His Celtic side was miles ahead of everybody else, including Rangers.
