It is looking like Celtic are finally getting close to appointing their next manager. Ange Postecoglou appears to be the man who will be in the Parkhead dugout come next season.
When news emerged that Postecoglou was the favourite to get the Parkhead job after talks broke down with Eddie Howe, who had been linked with the Hoops for months at that point, a lot of eyebrows were raised. But as more has become known about the manager’s achievements and abilities, a number of fans have grown warmer to the idea of his appointment.
Another question that has been raised a lot over the past week or so is regarding who will be the people in Postecoglou’s coaching staff. Rumours had cropped up that former Rangers man, Kevin Muscat, was in the running for the role of assistant manager due to his long history with Postecoglou.
But as reported by the Daily Record, Muscat will not follow Postecoglou to Celtic to be his assistant manager.

Postecoglou has a massive task on his hands at Celtic
This summer provides the Hoops an opportunity to make a fresh start. There is no hiding from the fact that last season was a major disappointment and one that they will like to forget as soon as possible.
It looks like there will be a massive overhaul of the squad over the next couple of months, with a number of first-team players expected to leave and will have to be replaced by new faces.
Odsonne Edouard, Kristoffer Ajer and Ryan Christie have all been linked with moves away while Scott Brown is leaving as well to take a player-coach role at Aberdeen. On top of that, the loan deals of the likes of Mohamed Elyounoussi, Diego Laxalt, Shane Duffy and Jonjoe Kenny have run out as well. Thus, it will be a very different looking Celtic team that will take to the Parkhead pitch next season.
