Celtic fans hoping for glimpses of a bright new future were left disappointed as they watched what has been billed as Ange Postecoglou’s farewell to Yokohama Marinos.

Fourth Division Honda spoiled the script with a penalty shoot-out win away to Marinos after a 2-2 draw.

When the Honda goalkeeper Yuki Kusomotostepped up to open the scoring from the penalty spot in the 28th minute the signs were ominous for Yokohama’s Australian boss.

Eber equalised for Yokohama midway through the second half but there was no further scoring in the 90 minutes. Leo looked to be putting Marinos through when he scored in the 102nd minute but Honda equalised four minutes later through Yuki Okazaki to take the tie to a shoot-out which they won 4-3.

Over the last few days speculation has intensified that Postecoglou was bound for Celtic with today’s match the chance for him to sign off on a winning note.

The next 24 hours should decide whether or not Celtic have ended their 105 day search for a new manager but wary of the Eddie Howe experience no one at the club will be rushing to comment before all contracts are signed and sealed.
