ANGE POSTECOGLOU has distanced himself from departing chief executive Dominic McKay, casting doubt on the theory that McKay was solely responsible for bringing him to Celtic.

McKay, who had waxed lyrical about the ‘shared vision’ that he and Postecoglou had for the club upon the appointment of the Australian, surprisingly stepped down on Friday citing personal reasons.

Postecoglou says though that he will have no problem working under acting CEO Michael Nicholson, as he remains focused on putting a winning team on the pitch.

"We have to be careful with the narrative of who brought me to the club,” Postecoglou said after watching his team defeat Ross County.

“I was as surprised as anyone that Dom resigned but I am going to be respectful of him and his family. When people cite personal reasons, there's reasons for that. Michael is now in charge and that's good because I already know him.”

A section of the Celtic support held up a banner protesting against the board during the 3-0 win over County at Celtic Park, but Postecoglou says that such issues are none of his concern.

"We are all transient figures at this great club,” he said. “The constant is the fans and they expect us to get on with it. I've done that throughout my career and will continue to.

“Everyone is allowed to express opinions in whatever way they choose to. Our job is to send the 60,000 here home happy and the millions around the world.

“Sometimes it's good to be kept on your toes and I am sure our supporters will do that.”
