Ange Postecoglou adds ex-SPFL manager to Spurs backroom staff

Former Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has added a recently sacked SPFL Premiership manager to his coaching staff at Spurs. The Australian is entering his second season in charge of the Premier League side and has opted to bring in ex-Hibs manager Nick Montgomery to his backroom staff.

In an announcement on Tuesday evening, Spurs confirmed that they would add Montgomery along with his Assistant at Easter Rd, Sergio Raimundo. Ange was forced to reorganise his staff after former Celtic Assistant Manager Chris Davies left to take up the Birmingham City vacancy.

Montgomery was sacked in the split after Hibs failed to make Top Six. The announcement felt inevitable with fans turning on Montgomery and the team, resulting in Hibs appointing David Gray. However, it is clear that Postecoglou is sticking to his principles not to look down on the league that a coach has come from – with Montgomery coaching in Australia and Scotland.

Montgomery arrived with fanfare after Hibs paid compensation to Central Coast Mariners for his services. Things didn’t pan out for the ex-Sheffield Utd player and he was the latest victim of what appears to be a managerial poisoned chalice.
