Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has made the worst start to a season in more than 20 years, on a par with Dr Jozef Venglos.

The Australian boss saw his side beaten 1-0 by Livingston on Sunday to continue a run of no Premiership away wins since February.

With three home wins and three defeats on the road, Celtic have taken just nine points from their opening six games.

And that's the worst run since Venglos put up an identical tally to get the 1998-99 campaign under way.

The Slovak boss oversaw a 5-0 win over Dunfermline on the first day of the SPL season but then lost 3-2 away to Aberdeen.

Celtic defeated Dundee United 2-1 in their next game but could only manage a 1-1 draw with their city rivals next time out.

And Venglos' side lost their perfect home record against Kilmarnock as Jerome Vareille's second half goal cancelled out a Regi Blinker opener.

That season Celtic failed to lift a trophy, finishing six points behind Rangers in the title race as well as losing the Scottish Cup final to their Old Firm rivals.

The tumultuous 1993-94 season also started with a very similar record, one that led to the departure of manager Liam Brady.

The Hoops won just two of their opening six games, drawing three and losing one.

That was the final season of two points for a win and left them on seven points, which would of course be an identical nine points from six games in the modern era.

Things got even worse from there with two draws and two defeats, with Brady resigned after a loss to St Johnstone on October 6.

Frank Connor took over for a four-game caretaker spell before Lou Macari arrived on a permanent basis but he could only guide Celtic to fourth.
