Celtic touted to offer Ange Postecoglou a long-term contract

Celtic had a rather significant summer last year, not just because of the hefty number of players who moved in and out of the club, but because of their change in management.

After seeing Neil Lennon leave in February 2021, Ange Postecoglou took over on a permanent basis in June having signed a 12-month rolling contract.

Now that the 2021/22 season has drawn to an end and the 56-year-old has brought the Premiership title back to Parkhead in his first attempt, a claim has emerged over the Australian’s future at Lennoxtown which will surely have lots of Celtic fans buzzing.

What’s the talk?

Speaking to Football Insider, Gabby Agbonlahor raised the possibility of Celtic offering Postecoglou a new long-term deal.

The former Aston Villa striker said of the 56-year-old: “I think he does deserve that long-term deal, he has been outstanding this season. I’m sure they will give him that. It’s big for Scottish football. It’s great for Scottish football.

“Rangers and Celtic both look really good at the moment, next season is going to be really exciting. I remember as a kid always watching Rangers v Celtic, now, more people will be watching because they are both doing well.”

Earlier this month, it was reported by the Daily Record that the Parkhead club will look to sit down with Postecoglou and offer him a new long-term deal as a result of his successful first season in charge of the Bhoys.

While there has been no official announcement yet on the matter, the Hoops boss recently said that the Celtic fans would not need to worry about his future at the club.

Are you confident Postecoglou will sign a long-term deal?





Taking into account how Postecoglou has won 42 of his 60 games in charge at Celtic, it’s safe to say that Hoops supporters would love to see the Australian not only continue his journey with the Parkhead club but carry on with them on a long-term basis.

The sooner that the 56-year-old puts pen to paper on a new contract, the sooner that he and the Celtic hierarchy can get on with preparing for the new season and being as successful as they can on the domestic and European front.
