These Ange Postecoglou to Spurs rumours have been gathering pace over the past few days and yo would be lying if you said it didn’t worry you, and while it’s okay to talk about it, some are taking it to the extreme.
There has even been discussions on social media about who is in the running to replace Ange Postecoglou as Celtic manager and the name of Brendan Rodgers has even been banded about! I know Twitter is a strange place at the best of times, but they do tend to dramatise things much too often.
Ange hasn’t even said he is leaving yet, and while I myself think it’s a 50/50 chance of him staying, I still have confidence he will remain at the club, although the phone a friend option he has in Scott Munn is a bit of a worry. But I am sure his audience at Celtic can persuaded him to stay.
What better way than to showcase that at Hampden on Saturday? A win against Inverness and a historic treble could convince him to stay, and of course there’s the chance of another crack at the Champions league next season.
If Ange leaves Celtic now he may never get another chance to manager in the World’s most prestigious club competition and to get some success in it – remember Celtic’s record under Ange Postecoglou this season in the Champions League was two draws and four defeats in his six group stage games and in the Europa League and even in the Conference League in his first season his European results were poor.
That is not the record that Ange will want to have when he finally decides to call it a day in football management.
For now at least Ange is still here, let’s look forward to making history on Saturday and show the man how much he would be missing if he did leave. Worrying about things outwith your control, and talking about possible replacements is for another day. Stop worrying and focus on Saturday.
Hopefully we will be celebrating an historic Treble, if so enjoy the moment, and then turn your thoughts to the future after the celebrations are over.
