FORMER Celtic striker Chris Sutton has sent a farewell message to Ange Postecoglou who is on the brink of sealing his Hoops exit to take over at Spurs.
An announcement about the 57-year-old Greek-Australian gaffer is imminent after he agreed “in principle” a two-year deal with the London club’s supremo Daniel Levy yesterday.
Postecoglou made a sharp exit after guiding the Parkhead club to a world record eighth treble with the 3-1 Scottish Cup Final victory over Inverness Caley Thistle at Hampden at the weekend.
It was the fifth piece of domestic silverware he had won in his two years after taking over from Neil Lennon in June 2021.
Sutton is an admitted admirer of Postecoglou and the one-time England international frontman tweeted: “Good luck to Ange Postecoglou at Spurs. I’m gutted he left Celtic and his shoes are big to fill, but I understand why he’s gone to manage in the English Premier League.
“I’ve loved watching his Celtic team play for the last couple of seasons.”
It’s not quite done and dusted and there is still the question of Postecoglou’s desire to take his Hoops No.2 John Kennedy with him to Spurs, as CQN reported yesterday.
And the guessing game about his replacement at the champions is now in full swing.
Good luck to Ange Postecoglou at Spurs. I’m gutted he has left Celtic and his shoes are big shoes to fill but I understand why he’s gone to manage in the English Premier League. I’ve loved watching his Celtic team play for for last couple of seasons👏👏🍀
