Celtic manager odds as Ange Postecoglou appointed new Spurs boss

Brendan Rodgers is the favourite to answer Celtic's call and return to the club as manager following Ange Postecoglou's departure.

Postecoglou has left the Hoops to become the first ever Australian to manage in the Premier League, having agreed a four-year deal to take over as Spurs boss.

Rodgers managed Celtic to win two consecutive trebles before leaving the club to join Leicester in February 2019.

BoyleSports have installed the Carnlough native as the 6/4 favourite to replace Postecoglou at Celtic Park after some early support from punters.

Manchester City assistant Enzo Maresca is also said to be under consideration by the Celtic hierarchy should a move for Rodgers fail and the Italian is a close second favourite at 2/1 ahead of former Brighton and Chelsea boss Graham Potter and Norwegian Kjetil Knutsen (both 7/1).

At 25/1, former Celtic managers Martin O’Neill and Neil Lennon aren’t being backed to receive the call, while former fan favourites Henrik Larsson (33/1) and Roy Keane (40/1) are notable names amongst the outsiders.

Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “There are big shoes to fill at Celtic as Ange Postecoglou packs his bags, but Brendan Rodgers has previous there and punters clearly see him as the perfect fit.”

Meanwhile, Postecoglou is 10/3 with Paddy Power to leave Spurs before Christmas, while the 57-year-old is 4/6 to still be Tottenham manager for the final game of the season 2023/24.

Paddy Power spokesperson Rachael Kane said: "This appointment is bound to spark excitement with Spurs fans following another dismal season and Kane’s inevitable departure. But don’t get too excited lads, a ‘Spursy’ surprise is never too far away. Good luck, Ange! May your reign be as legendary as the fans' patience.”
