Celtic: Ange Postecoglou backed to sign new deal

Celtic: Ange Postecoglou backed to sign new deal -Celtic News

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou will eventually sign a new deal at the club as his rolling contract continues, according to Sky Sports reporter Anthony Joseph.

The Lowdown: Still no new deal for Postecoglou

The 56-year-old has proven to be a magnificent appointment at Parkhead, coming in last summer and making an immediate impression.

Celtic won both the Premiership and Scottish League Cup under his tutelage in 2021/22, sealing a return to the Champions League in the process.

Frustratingly, Postecoglou is yet to sign a new deal after only agreeing a one-year contract when he joined the Hoops, with his rolling deal similar to past managers.

The Latest: Joseph makes Postecoglou claim

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Joseph claimed that the Australian would remain as manager, with an extension imminent.

The journalist stated:

“Celtic do this with new managers all the time; they have done since the start of the century.

“[Martin] O’Neill was on a rolling contract, [Gordon] Strachan, [Neil] Lennon, [Tony] Mowbray, Lennon again and Brendan Rodgers as well was on a rolling contract, and then they usually sign if their first year has been successful or Celtic see it going somewhere. That’s when they end up tying them down on a longer term contract.

“And I think that’s what’s going to happen here. There’s been no change there with Celtic’s approach, and it’s just a case of when, rather than if, I think.”

Celtic fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Longer contract would be perfect

In an ideal world, Postecoglou would agree a long-term contract which sees him stay at Celtic for four or five years, but that doesn’t appear to be the way the club want to run things.

As it is, the Hoops will have to settle for these short-term agreements moving forward, which is certainly preferable to their brilliant manager moving elsewhere instead.
