Everton manager Frank Lampard has dismissed rumours that Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou could replace him in the hot seat at Goodison Park.
Earlier this week, journalist Alan Nixon reported that Postecoglou was at the top of the list of potential replacements for the former Chelsea head coach. When asked about the claims, Lampard replied:
“I’m pretty good at not paying too much attention to (coaching rumours), just understanding what it is. You go from one week from being [the] best manager in the world after an amazing result to (the opposite) – it can go both ways. It’s fine. I’m fortunate to do the job I do, and I’m fortunate to have had a really long playing career. It gives me good context. I try to stay pretty level-headed.”
Postecoglou’s Celtic side actually face Everton in the Sydney Super Cup on Sunday so questions about the job were perhaps inevitable.
Since arriving at Parkhead at the start of last season, Postecoglou has transformed the Hoops, establishing a brand of attacking football that helped reclaim the Scottish Premiership title, as well as winning the League Cup.
Links with clubs in the Premier League have subsequently followed but the Australian has repeatedly insisted that he wants to see through the job he has started at Celtic. Considering Everton are languishing near the foot of the table too, they’re hardly an appealing team to join at this present moment in time either.
