Ange to Leeds is pie in the sky as his Celtic Euro record means they won't go near him – Hotline

The lure of the English Premier League as the new Leeds United boss may be tempting Ange Postecoglou but Celtic fans are confident their manager is going nowhere.

Whether the Australian is on the Elland Road radar remains to be seen and the Hoops fans on the Hotline aren't worried just yet. Davie Knox, Queen's Park, emailed: "There’s no need for Celtic fans to worry about losing their manager to Leeds or any other EPL team for that matter. His record in Europe is abysmal and he wouldn’t be able to buy his way to victory in a more competitive league."

Stephen Mulhern, Dumbarton, emailed: "It’s inevitable now that as soon as a vacancy comes up in the English Premier League the manager that has Celtic playing the finest football since the legendary Jock Stein gets mentioned. I believe Postecoglou wants to prove himself on the European stage and leaving Celtic to fight a relegation battle with Leeds for instance surely isn’t on his agenda."

Eddie Easson, Ballingry, emailed: "Chris Sutton gets slaughtered on the Hotline for telling the truth. Does anyone think Big Ange is going to jump ship? No. Will he entertain Leeds? No. Are Celtic the biggest and best team in Scotland? Yes, by a country mile, check the league positions and as for the Michael Beale revolution, get a grip, Rangers are expected to beat all the teams bar Celtic."

Jimmy Neil, Glasgow, emailed: "There's hardly a week goes by without Postecoglou bumping his gums about what Celtic are going to do. Rangers are only just getting started, we're improving all the time, we're getting stronger, time to step up to a new level. He's clearly getting excited by the fact that 10 teams in the Premiership can't lay a glove on Celtic on a regular basis. He totally forgets that the mega-rich teams in Europe are constantly moving to a new level, and accept the fact that if in future Rangers and Celtic compete in the Champions league, we will always just be making up the numbers."

Bud Hay, Dumfries, emailed: "Rangers supporters go on about Beale being 11 games undefeated but Postecoglou is unbeaten in 29 games. Rangers won't reach that target as the league is over and Celtic will end that run shortly."

Paddy Gowans emailed: "Why doesn't Beale give it a rest for a while as he talks a load of rubbish and he's got more front than Ian Beale of Eastenders." Arrin Geddes, Irvine, emailed: "Most fair minded people, including some Rangers fans, thought Nicky Clark’s red card was wrong.

"The decision gets overturned by the review panel but Stuart Dougal is telling us the same tackle this weekend would still get a red. The arrogance from this bunch of ‘we’re never wrong’ amateurs is unbelievable."

Alistair Fagan, Aberdeen, emailed: "Jake Curley's Hotline comments shows how bad his memory is. Let me remind him of this quote. 'For every fiver they spend we will spend a tenner' and we all know the outcome of that. If Jake would care to look into Celtic's dealings since Postecoglou arrived he will find accounts are in profit so please dry your eyes and be happy with three runner up spots."

Scott Kerr, Knightswood, emailed: "The Celtic winning machine rolls on towards another league title while that team from the Southside struggle to win. Beale loves the sound of his own voice and I can't wait for Rangers to visit Celtic Park."

Terry Reilly emailed: "I had a good laugh at Hotline caller Joe Sneddon, who couldn’t find Ibrox in a map of Govan, talking about Celtic fans being quick to desert their club. I would just like to remind him that Rangers used to get crowds of 3000."

Robert Frew, Glasgow, emailed: "Hotline caller Alan Fletts's grasp of reality leaves a lot to be desired but, to be fair, he does make you laugh." Alan Lough, Dunbar, emailed: "As a lifelong Manchester United fan, I wish to comment on Cristiano Ronaldo turning 38. He may still be playing football but his club career of playing for a great team ended when he did that interview with Piers Morgan. It was all because Erik ten Hag had the guts to tell him he isn't good enough anymore and he couldn't take it."

Kenny Goff, emailed: "Having watched the Tottenham game against Manchester City, I now know why everyone says that Spurs are the biggest moaners and time wasters in the Premier League."
