Things have moved quickly for Ange Postecoglou. On Saturday he was being serenaded by the Celtic fans after delivering them a Treble at Hampden, by Monday night it was a case of “Ange who?” as the Hoops fans started to consider his replacement following confirmation the Aussie had agreed to become the new Spurs boss.
Postecoglou’s first task will be to return Tottenham to the Champions League and they’re seventh in the betting for a top four finish next season at 3/1.
They’re 40/1 shots to win the Premier League, which would make Postecoglou’s debut season one of the most remarkable English football has ever seen.
He may need to deliver success without England captain Harry Kane who is reportedly top of Real Madrid’s list to replace legendary Karim Benzema.
Unibet go 7/4 that Kane will end up at the Bernabeu while Skybet are best price at 13/8 to remain at Spurs. Manchester United are the shortest other Premier League side at 5/2.
For Celtic the search for a new leader begins.
Former Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers leads the market at 7/4 but a large section of Celtic fans have not forgiven him for bailing mid-season with the league still to be won in 2019 and there’s conflicting reports that he’s ruled himself out of the post.
West Ham gaffer Davie Moyes, who started his playing career at Celtic, is next in line at a biggest price 6/1.
Then comes highly-regarded assistant to Postecoglou, John Kennedy at 9s, the same price as Enzo Maresca.
Kjetil Knudsen could be lively contender at 10/1, backed in from an earlier 14s. Celtic dipped in to Eliteserien in 2014 when they plucked Ronny Deila from Stromsgodset and the current Bodo/Glimt manager has been attracting admirers across Europe for a number of seasons now.
Former Premier League managers, Jesse Marsch (10/1) and Graham Potter (11/1) are quoted, as are likes of club legends Scott Brown (20/1) and Martin O’Neill (25/1).
It’s bound to be an interesting few days and weeks in Glasgow. Who do you think will take up the hotseat at Celtic Park?
