Spurs speculation ‘doesn’t register’, says Postecoglou

Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou insists he is unfazed by reports linking him with the Tottenham manager’s job.

Reports have suggested that chairman Daniel Levy is interested in installing the Australian at Spurs, where Ryan Mason has been in interim charge following the departure of Antonio Conte.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of his side’s Scottish Cup final against Inverness, Postecoglou said: “It doesn’t register. I get that people love to speculate on these things but we’ve worked really, really hard to get ourselves into this position.

“For me to let my mind wonder about anything else other than getting our team prepared for a big day on Saturday, it’s just not who I am.

“We’ve done this dance a few times this year so I think the players are well aware of where my thoughts lie. Whatever it is the players are really good at just focusing on what’s important and what’s important is getting ready for a big game on Saturday.

“I’ve handled it before, so I’ll handle it the same way. I doesn’t enter my sphere of thinking because my role is to make sure my team is absolutely prepared for whatever the next challenge is. Far be it from me to say that if a cup final isn’t enough for me to draw all my attention to that then nothing will be.”

Postecoglou also dismissed reports that he plans to speak to the Celtic hierarchy about his future.

“No because that would mean me planning, organising, thinking about anything other than Saturday,” he said.

“For me I woke up this morning thinking about one thing, the same thing I’ve been thinking about for the last seven days, we want to make sure we play well in this cup final and make it a truly special season.”
