Many Celtic supporters have been talking about Anthony Joseph’s tweet that emerged on social media.
Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph tweeted about the Hoops’ chase of Ange Postecoglou, claiming that talks between the two parties are progressing well and the Bhoys are looking to conclude the deal by the middle of the week.
The journalist also posted a link from Sky Sports, which had more details about Celtic’s chase of the Australian. The report stated Postecoglou has been recommended to Celtic by Fergal Harkin, who is expected to be named the club’s sporting director.
Would you be happy with Postecoglou's appointment?
What did Celtic fans make of Joseph’s tweet?
“It’s the cheap option again by Celtic. Let Howe string them along and made it clear that he was the absolute no 1 target. No one worth their salt would touch us knowing they were 2nd choice.“
“At least they can save money on the Security staff when he gets unveiled. Absolutely humiliating that a club of our stature should be taking a risk like this.“
“This better be a joke.”
“All for being proven wrong but this is a beyond bizarre appointment.”
“Not for me thanks. Board need starved out. They are stealing Celtic’s money for personal gain, it’s run purely for profit with football being secondary. They need chased.”
Postecoglou’s Brisbane Roar side was often described as “Roarcelona” due to their playing style and comparisons with Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona side. Under the Australian, Roar won two league titles and even went on a 36-match unbeaten run.
Under him, Australia won the Asian Cup in 2015 and he helped them exceed expectations at the 2014 World Cup, guiding them to qualification in the 2018 edition.
So Postecoglou clearly has an impressive CV and perhaps Celtic should be patient with him to impose his style over the team if he is appointed.
