Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou reveals how Hibs’ Martin Boyle left him ‘quite happy’ – .



Even though Celtic have now strung together four wins as Jack Ross’s side collapsed to three straight losses, seven consecutive unsuccessful high-profile encounters at Leith for Celtic will make their journey east difficult.

Former Australian manager Postecoglou, however, admits he has special consideration for Boyle which can be attributed to the winger declaring himself for the Celtic manager’s homeland three years ago as Scotland wanted to cap the ‘Aberdonian. “I know Martin very well,” he said of the forward, who now has five goals in nine appearances for the Socceroos. “I was pretty happy when he chose to play for Australia because there was a bit of a showdown when it came to who he was going to play for. He did very well for the national team so I know him well. He’s a good player and it’s not easy to play for Australia. Unlike other national teams, he has to make long-haul trips and coming back to this part of the world is not easy. So he handled it very well.
