Postecoglou isn't focusing on Tottenham speculation ahead of Scottish Cup final

Celtic's Head Coach, Ange Postecoglou, has dismissed rumors linking him to Tottenham Hotspur, stating that his focus is solely on the upcoming Scottish Cup Final against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

English side Tottenham have been in search of a new manager since parting ways with Antonio Conte, but they have not been successful in their search so far resulting in a number of failed approaches, with managers like Julian Nagelsmann and Arne Slot were linked to the job, both did not secure the position.

The latest manager to be linked this week is Ange Postecoglou, who currently manages Celtic. Since joining Celtic, Postecoglou, a former J-League coach, has transformed the team with his progressive style of play and strategic signings.

After winning the Scottish Premiership and Scottish League Cup in the past two seasons, he now has the opportunity to complete a treble with Celtic.

Reports suggest that Postecoglou, aged 57, is set to be announced as the new manager of Spurs as early as next week.

However, Postecoglou remains focused on the Scottish Cup Final and has stated that the rumors will not distract him or the players.

He also emphasised the importance of the upcoming game and expressed his dedication to preparing the team for success.

"This time last week it was a different story. It was somebody else linked. That's just the way it works," Postecoglou told reporters on Friday

"It makes no difference to the way I behave or think or prepare. I didn't wake up thinking about anything other than getting training right and making sure we are ready for Saturday.

"Saturday means everything to us, everything. So it doesn't enter my sphere that I am going to be distracted - as I hope the players wouldn't be - by matters in their own lives."

The match against Inverness is scheduled to begin at 17:30PM tomorrow.
