‘If I start’ – Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou clears up exit rumours amid Liverpool links

The Celtic manager was recently tipped to take over at Liverpool once Jurgen Klopp departs.

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has responded to reports linking him with an exit from the reigning Scottish Premiership champions, having recently been tipped to become the next Liverpool boss.


The 57-year-old has enjoyed great success since joining the Hoops in June 2021, having guided the club to a domestic double in his first season in charge at the club last campaign. Out of contract at the club next summer, Postecoglou is beginning to be backed to take on a role at a Premier League side.


Leicester City are one club the Greek-Australian coach has been rumoured to represent as pressure continues to mount on former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers. On the back of this, Postecoglou was backed to become Jurgen Klopp’s replacement at Anfield, with the German set to depart in 2026.


Setting the record straight on his future, the Celtic coach said: “It’s fair to say that speculation around my future has been with me since day one, you know, for different reasons! For me, I don’t worry about that stuff. It doesn’t really enter my brain space.


I take on every job I have and every challenge to try and make the football club as successful as it can be and that’s always been my total focus. If I start thinking about the speculation that’s there now and me potentially moving on to I don’t know where, then I would be have been worried at the start when people were saying that I wouldn’t last too long.


“I keep saying to the players, just live in the moment. The present is the most important time because the past, you can’t change and the future, you can’t control.”
