Some light humour is required in the midst of this dark day for Celtic. The fans got got got less than 24 hours to celebrate another historic treble win before the news broke that Tottenham Hotspur are set to confirm Ange Postecoglou as their new manager.
The English Premier League side have been in talks with the Celtic manager are expected to announce the news this week.
But not long after respected journalist, David Ornstein broke the Celtic fans hearts, Paddy Power stepped in to offer some much needed lighthearted humour to todays proceedings.
BREAKING: After winning a domestic treble at Celtic and 5 trophies in two seasons, Ange Postecoglu has announced his immediate retirement from winning any further silverware. https://t.co/S6CtaXAM5a— Paddy Power (@paddypower) June 4, 2023
Ange Postecoglou is taking a huge risk leaving Celtic
Now I know that the tweet from the betting giant was meant to be humorous, but there is an element of truth in it.
Spurs last won any silverware in 2008 after they won the League Cup. It’s been over 60 years since they won the league and that’s despite spending fortunes in the transfer market.
Daniel Levy is not known for having patience with his managers and the style of football Ange wants his teams to play requires a bedding in period where results will be shaky.
I hope this move works out for Ange. I wish him nothing but success but, in my opinion, the Celtic boss is taking a huge gamble taking on the North London club.
