Ange Postecoglou will ‘not set a timeline for Celtic’s future’ amid the Spurs connection.

The Parkhead manager is reportedly Tottenham Hotspur’s main target in their search for a permanent successor to Antonio Conte. Postecoglou, who secured the double last year, has guided Celtic to the brink of the domestic treble and is adamant that this is where his focus lies.

He is aware of the speculation from north London – but only, he says, because he keeps getting asked about it. Postecoglou previously said he might surprise people with how long he’s staying in Glasgow.

“I don’t set a timeline for things,” he said of being named Scottish Football Writers Association Manager of the Year. “If other people try it, that’s just conjecture.

“I start every year and do every job I do as if I’m staying here forever. The reality is I won’t be.

“But every decision I make is a decision that I think will be good for this football club or any other football club I work for. I’m pretty proud that every club I’ve worked with has continued to thrive after I’ve left.

“Nobody fell off a cliff just because I left. Every football club I’ve left has had success immediately after I left and I want to believe that what I’ve built will last.

“From my point of view, I don’t give any timetables for how long I’ll stay with a football club. I just look at each year as a separate year and an opportunity to build.”

Postecoglou was asked head on if the noise from Tottenham crossed his radar.

“It’s not the case because hopefully people know me well enough now and I’ve never thought of anything other than being present where I am,” he replied.

“It’s the only way I can work. I have never set a course for my career. There’s no chance you can bridge the link that took me from Melbourne to Glasgow.

“You can’t say, ‘In two or three years, I want to be there.'” The only thing I’ve ever done is do the job I have as best I can, succeed and last as long to keep going until circumstances change.

“For me, we have a big game on Saturday. It’s an important, special day that we receive the trophy. Then comes the cup final. It’s a big week ahead.”

Receiving the SFWA award gave the Celtic manager a hat-trick after being named PFA Scotland and Premiership Manager of the Year.

“I’m very happy with the whole thing,” said Postecoglou. “It’s a great recognition.”

“We became champions but it also depended on the way we played. I think everyone appreciated that, whether they follow us or not.

“We took on the challenge of winning it again and I’m proud of that. It is an award that represents the staff and everyone who has contributed.”
