Tottenham are set to step up their interest in Celtic head coach Ange Postecoglou after Saturday's Scottish Cup Final.

Postecoglou is a contender to permanently succeed Antonio Conte and is said to have impressed Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who is leading the club's search for a new head coach and director of football.

Yeah we are so busy this week. We’ll double our efforts next week.

actually next week is filling up quite rapidly, put a placeholder in for the week after and we can always move it if something else comes up.

"Daniel Levy, who is leading the club search."
Oh well that's great then, can't go wrong can we?.

I’m sure he’s a competent manager but given the state we are in we need a lot more than mere competent.
Someone needs to shake the club at its core.
Hope we are not going to end up with someone who levy will end up sacking at the end of November.

Good shout, given, performance wise, we're probably at about the same level as The Scottish Premiership at present. So it's not as if Postecoglou would be out of his depth.

What's impressive about Ange Postecoglou? Steven Gerrard led Rangers to an unbeaten season in a competition where most of the opposition is about League One standard or lower, then failed miserably with Aston Villa.

Failing at Celtic might be a stick to beat him with but I don't see how succeeding can be used against him. Proven winners in the big leagues have done nothing for us so I'd rather take someone who has at least coached his side to play fluid, attacking football. I'm not convinced the other bigger names available can make us better, but I'm convinced this guy will make us better to watch.

I don't think @Fergus was suggesting managing Celtic makes him a bad manager - only that his success there doesn't really evidence whether or not he's up to managing a PL team.

To his credit, Postecoglou has won titles in four different countries (Australia, New Zealand, Japan & Scotland), as well as continental titles with the Australia National team (1x senior title & 7x youth title). I don't know enough about him to have an opinion on how suitable he is for a "big six" PL club.
