ANGE POSTECOGLOU has been warned by Charlie Nicholas not to make the same mistake as Steven Gerrard did when he left The Rangers for Aston Villa.
After being linked to the Brighton job, it’s expected he’ll also be tipped for the Leicester job, when that becomes available in the coming weeks. Brendan Rodgers is running out of time with the English side, who sit rock bottom of the Premier League yet to win a league game this season.
Nicholas insists that Postecoglou won’t entertain the vacancy with Champions League football or a relegation battle the choice.
When the time does come for the Aussie manager to leave the Hoops, hopefully a wee while away yet, the newspaper columnist believes that he’ll go for a top European club.
As quoted by the Daily Record, Charlie Nicholas said;
“Ange Postecoglou won’t be interested in the job at Leicester City if it becomes available – but he will, eventually, leave Celtic for a top European club. The English Premier League is attractive but there are times to make that move and Steven Gerrard made the wrong choice last term to go to Aston Villa.
“Ange, above, won’t make that mistake as he can see what happens down south and will wait until the right opportunity comes along. He seems to be enjoying where he is and wants to achieve more at Celtic.
“But, if he continues to bring success, it will lead to offers and I get the feeling he’d rather work on the continent than in England. Brendan Rodgers couldn’t wait to leave Celtic after a fall-out with Peter Lawwell. Now he’s under pressure and Leicester don’t look like a great option at present.”
It’s hard to believe a move away from Celtic would even cross Postecoglou’s mind. He still has a lot to achieve at Celtic, and the project is far from finished.
He’s got reasons on and off the pitch to stay at Celtic; I don’t think fans have to worry about his immediate future.
