Celtic legend Tom Boyd believes Ange Postecoglou will continue to attract interest from elsewhere if the Hoops maintain their current levels of performance.
Brighton have been linked with the Australian, following Graham Potter’s departure to Chelsea and, while he is hopeful that Postecoglou will stay in charge for a number of years, Boyd claims that attention from other teams is inevitable:
“We do not want any clubs coming in for Ange but it will happen. We know it will happen, especially if the team continues playing the way it has been. It’s difficult to surmise how content Ange is here. All you can say is he looks very happy, but somebody (Brendan Rodgers) said that before when they were here and they didn’t turn out to be! With Ange, it (interest from elsewhere) will come, we know it will come.”
“If he’s successful, as with any player, if the price is right, that time will come. But hopefully, he’s here for a few years yet and there can be a line of succession in place to develop things. What the manager has done for Celtic will not go unnoticed but we’ll be delighted for every day he is here and hopefully, we can see that for a few years yet.”
Supporters will be very much hoping that Postecoglou doesn’t do what Brendan Rodgers did and leave the club midway through the season.
While the 57-year-old does likely have ambitions of working in the English Premier League one day, he has only been in Scotland just over a year.
Brighton are not exactly a club going places, and you would think Postecoglou would be keen on joining a team that can, at least, match what he has at Parkhead. It doesn’t get much better than the group stages of the Champions League facing Real Madrid with a 60,000 capacity crowd behind you.
