Former Socceroos boss and Greek Australian footballer Ange Postecoglou is lined up to take over as Celtic FC’s new manager.
The Telegraph’s John Percy reports that Celtic are “in advanced talks” with Postecoglou after former English Premier League manager Eddie Howe turned the job down.
Postecoglou,55, has had success with every job he has taken, having previously managed Australia, Melbourne Victory and Brisbane Roar – winning two A-League championships with the latter.
The appointment would be huge for the Australian and Socceroos star Tom Rogic who still plays for the Scottish team.
In a recent interview with the Fox Football Podcast, Postecoglou said he planned to remain overseas for the rest of his career.
“As a family we’ve made a decision we’re going to stay overseas for the rest of my career and see where else we can make an impact. Maybe it’s here [Japan], maybe I stay awhile and build something special, or it could be somewhere else.
“I want to produce teams that play a certain way that gets people talking and have success obviously, because if I don’t have success, I’m not going to have a job.”
