Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou says Spurs’ interest ‘doesn’t register.’
As he prepares for the Scottish Cup final, Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou says alleged Tottenham interest “doesn’t register” with him.
Spurs are reportedly planning a move for the Australian after Celtic’s match against Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Saturday.
Postecoglou stated that the fresh reports had not influenced his decision.
“Wasn’t someone else the favorite last week?” “No, it doesn’t register,” he explained.
Christie is impressed by Postecoglou’s ‘all or nothing’ approach.”I understand why people are so interested in these things.
“But we’ve worked really, really hard to get here, and letting my mind wander to anything other than getting our team ready for a big day on Saturday is just not who I am.”
A win over Inverness CT at Hampden would give Celtic a domestic triple and Postecoglou a fifth trophy out of six available in Scotland.
The 57-year-old, who is on a 12-month contract, has been connected with potential Premier League jobs and was asked whether he could convince fans that he would be at the club next season.
“Our fans want to come out on cup day and celebrate and make it a special day,” he said.
“Because anything I say now will be meaningless if we don’t win on Saturday.” I can assure you of that. That is my primary emphasis because it is my responsibility. That will not alter. That has been made abundantly apparent.
“It’s a huge responsibility to be the manager of this football club, and I’m not going to dismiss potentially our biggest game of the year.”
Kyogo is ‘confident’ about his fitness.
Kyogo Furuhashi, who has 33 goals this season, limped off in the 5-0 win against Aberdeen last week, and Postecoglou disclosed that the Japanese striker has not trained this week.
However, the Celtic manager indicated that Kyogo will practice on Friday before making a decision on his readiness for the final.
“He’s still pretty enthusiastic about playing, so we’ll see how it goes,” Postecoglou said.
“We’ll follow his lead. He’s mentally strong, so if he gives us the go-ahead, we’ll throw him in there.”
