Celtic’s interest in Ange Postecoglou certainly set Twtter alive over the weekend.

On Friday night there were a few mentions linking Celtic with the Yokohama Marinos manager but by Saturday the welter of media reports and profiling of the 55-year-old suggested that the interest was real.

To go from Eddie Howe, a 43-year-old with five years’ experience in the EPL to a guy that had only managed for a couple of games in the Greek Third Division seemed like an incredible drop in standards with perhaps 90% or more of the Celtic support alarmed at the change in direction.

Responding to this Paul John Dykes of the ACSOM podcast dug into his contact book and got a positive response from representatives of Mark Hughes.

The former Southampton boss looks to be in danger of falling off the management circuit but having managed for over 400 matches in the EPL Hughes is a far less risky appointment than a guy that has never been involved in the British game.

Without doubt the Welshman would be able to grasp the issues facing Celtic and have a knowledge of who is available and network of contacts and agents to turn to.

Hughes isn’t anywhere near the trendy type of appointment that Howe would be but compared to Postecoglou he seems far less risky and ready to hit the ground running.

Should Ange Postecoglou be offered the Celtic job?

Yes, we have to trust the club, they know their job
