According to the Celtic shot-stopper, Ange Postecoglou's football philosophy can be ‘risky’ but he emphasized that it is simple.

Following his appointment in the summer,

to work on attacking with pace in every match but the Hoops are going to face


in the Premiership on Sunday, having won only two games from eight this season.

After their thumping 4-0 Europa League loss at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday, which saw Celtic earn only one point from two games in the group stage, there was another inquest; however,

Joe Hart

backed his manager.

Hart said:

"What he asks of us as a coach, yes, it is a risky, if you like, way of playing football.

"But actually, if you really break it down, which he does for us, he doesn't expect us to just walk out there and he says, 'play total football, go on lads, off you go', there is simple ways.

"Ultimately a lot of the time it is 10 or 15-yard passes and we need to believe and be calm and clear in our minds of these 10 or 15-yard passes because yes, it's a different way of playing to maybe how other teams are doing things but we have a top coach and a good coaching team behind him who also believe in what they are doing.

"All the information is there for us, every single bit of information for us to play his way is there."

The 34-year-old revealed that he is delighted to be part of a Postecoglou's project, saying:

"It is why we play football.

"Me personally, I love it, I love the fact that I am 34 years old and I am learning a new style of play and learning new parts that I can do.

"Yes, we are a new group of players but so what, that is not an excuse.

"We are here every day trying to put things right and trying to perform - we do believe we are close.

"That is only going to frustrate people on the outside, it is and we know that, but there is no point coming this far to not see through what we are trying to do."

Notwithstanding Aberdeen having failed to win a game in eight matches, Hart is only thinking about Celtic.

He said:

"It is important that we pick ourselves up and we go again and we go hard and look to get three points.

"Aberdeen have their own problems and they are going to take care of themselves but we have to look at us and turn the possession and dominance in games into victories, it is as simple as that.

"We will go there with the same intentions we have had in every game, to dominate and win and we need to get over the line."
