Jim Goodwin has revealed that he understands the criticism of Aberdeen’s tactics during their 5-0 defeat to Celtic at Celtic Park on Sunday, and he believes that a better strategy will be put in place for their next game against Hearts. Although the result left many fans disappointed, the defeat did not tarnish the good start to the season that the Scottish club has had, and they are expected to be in the running for the Championship title when the new season begins in September.
Aberdeen manager accepts responsibility for defensive tactics against Celtic
Jim Goodwin has admitted that Aberdeen’s defensive tactics were poor in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Pittodrie. The Dons failed to register a single shot on target and only registered 19 per cent of possession.
The Irish manager has taken full responsibility for Aberdeen’s approach. However, he has also admitted that his defensive approach needs to change if the Dons are to be successful against Rangers.
During the match, the Dons defended for 85 minutes and only saw two shots on target. Despite playing deep, the Dons’ attack could not break down Celtic. A late goal from Callum McGregor rescued Aberdeen.
The Dons have been criticized for their tactical approach to Celtic, with former Dons captain Willie Miller saying that the tactics were ‘unacceptable’. But Goodwin has argued that it was an unfair criticism. He has argued that his style of attractive football is appealing to fans, and he is also aware that there is room for criticism.

Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic performance
Celtic have a nine point lead over Rangers. But there’s more to the story than just a draw at Aberdeen. Postecoglou will be disappointed to see the draw, but he knows his team needs to win.
Celtic were unable to break down an Aberdeen side that showed little ambition. They managed only two shots on target, while Aberdeen had 19 percent possession. But the draw came from a goal from Callum McGregor.
Jim Goodwin has faced criticism for playing cautiously, with his team only managing to score twice. But the Saints boss says he doesn’t mind defending his tactical approach. He knows his team’s needs, and he’s confident they will do well. He’s also convinced his players are committed.
The Hoops were given a boost by their World Cup break, as the squad travelled to Portugal for warm-weather training. They also played two friendlies in Australia.
Ange Postecoglou has shown his patience, even if he’s frustrated at some of his players’ mistakes. He praised the work ethic of his side, but he refused to let them off the hook.
Aberdeen’s defensive performance against Rangers
Jim Goodwin has come under fire for the defensive performance he has put in at Aberdeen. Many believe his tactics were a failure, and that he needs to take a more offensive approach against Rangers.
Goodwin has admitted that he got his game plan wrong. However, he insists that he will make decisions that will earn him points. He will do this because he respects the fans’ right to voice their frustrations.
While Goodwin is certainly young, he has experience putting in a solid defensive display. In the first half, he sat in a 5-3-2 formation. The back-five was made up of Bojan Miovski and Duk Kovac, and Ylber Ramadani. He limited Celtic to a handful of long-range efforts, and he even saved a goal from going in.
The Scottish Premiership’s top two clubs met at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon, and Aberdeen were given a rough time. Aberdeen lost 1-0, while the visitors took home four points.
Aberdeen’s positive picture going forward
Aberdeen’s defeat to Celtic was met with criticism by fans. The club’s manager, Jim Goodwin, has acknowledged that there was a backlash from supporters and has accepted responsibility for his defensive tactics. However, Goodwin has vowed to be more aggressive against Rangers.
The Scots team had just 20 per cent possession of the ball and only took two shots on goal. It wasn’t until Callum McGregor scored from the edge of the penalty area that Aberdeen’s defence was finally breached. During the game, Kell Roos made two excellent saves and there were no other opportunities.
It seemed like Aberdeen were ready to take a point from the match. But in the 87th minute, McGregor shot from the outside of the penalty box and the ball rolled into the back of the net. It was the only goal of the match.
It’s been a tough couple of months for Goodwin, who has been heavily criticised by fans and former players. He’s had to defend his tactics in games against the Scottish Big Two and will now face Rangers at Pittodrie tomorrow.
