The news about Southampton sacking their manager has barely broken and the hacks up here already know that Ange Postecoglou is being discussed in their boardroom as a possible replacement. Really?
The people who didn’t know Rangers was collapsing until bits of it started hitting them on the head only took ten years to get this smart?
That’s one way of looking at it. Another way would be to look at the league table, recognise that the worst thing about it, from their point of view, is that this a story which could go on and on and on and you see the reasons why they might be afraid.
The hacks would love to see Ange walk out on Celtic.
They would love to see our club upended at this particular moment in time, when it’s the lot across the city who are floundering and deep in crisis. What a change in their fortunes it would bring.
And it is not going to happen. Southampton will have ideas about where they want to go next, and those ideas will not revolve around Scotland. Ange has his ideas about where he wants to go next, and that’s back into the Champions League.
He will not entertain the idea of a move to England when there is a very big job still to do right here.
I am fairly sure that these idiots in our media know this stuff already, so all they are really doing today is tormenting that handful of their readers who are still clutching at straws.
But deep down, most of them know full well that things are bad for their favourite club and liable to get worse whilst at Celtic there is peace and calm in the air.
Ange is not going to Southampton. It’s doubtful that he’s even on their list of options. There are a few out of work bosses down there who stand a good chance of getting that gig, and that’s before they even cast their eyes abroad.
This isn’t even mischief making.
It’s a combination of fantasising, bitterness and laziness.
We have the worst sports media in the world.
