Ange Postecoglou has reached a verbal agreement with Tottenham Hotspur according to Italian journalist, Fabrizio Romano. Romano took to Twitter this morning to announce that the next step in appointing the Celtic manager has been completed.
Postecoglou is said to have signed a two-year deal with an option of a further year which would mean the Australian has a contract taking him up to 2026 with the English Premier League club.
The speculation surrounding the Celtic manager has been rife since the Australian wrapped up the domestic treble on Saturday and now, it seems that an announcement could be made this morning before Ange Postecoglou goes on holiday tomorrow.
The announcement all but confirms the Celtic manager’s imminent departure from the club and the news will dampen what had been a weekend of much celebration for the Celtic supporters.
Ange Postecoglou refused to be drawn over his future at the Scottish Cup win at Hampden over the weekend. And with reports from David Ornstein yesterday claiming that Spurs were close to confirming Ange as their new manager, the next few hours will probably see an official announcement made by the club.
And as we await confirmation of the departure of the Celtic manager, thoughts will now turn to who will succeed him. Rumours on Twitter have suggested that former Celtic boss, Brendan Rodgers could be in the frame. Rodgers is a free agent since leaving Leicester City earlier in the season.
The decision to appoint Rodgers could split the supporters opinion after the way he left the club in 2020 but there is no denying that the former Celtic manager was a huge success during his tenure at the club.
