Crystal Palace manager news: Ange Postecoglou link laughed off by Celtic legend Kenny Dalglish
Kenny Dalglish believes Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou would not be tempted by a move to a struggling Premier League team.
The Australian coach reclaimed the Scottish Premiership title during his first season with the Scottish giants but is frequently linked with a move south of the border.
Crystal Palace, who recently sacked Patrick Vieira as they scramble to preserve their top-flight status, have recently been touted as a potential landing spot.
"There’s no background to it," Hoops legend Dalglish said.
"He’s done brilliantly at Celtic and it’s attracted people from down south to say ‘come down here’. But are you trying to say Celtic’s not as big an adventure as some of the clubs that were allegedly interested in him?
"Why would he go down to the Premier League and get relegated or to a team threatened by relegation? He’d rather be at Celtic playing to win trophies."
Although he feels Postecoglou will be content at Celtic, Dalglish believes any English clubs looking for a new boss would be "stupid" not to take note of his work at Parkhead, where he has won three domestic trophies from a possible four since taking the reins.
"When you’re doing well there’s always somebody else interested, and so they should be," he said.
"What he’s done for Celtic has been brilliant. If we know what he’s done, so do all the clubs in England. Whether they’re attracted to him or not is another thing, but surely they will appreciate what he’s done. But even if he was asked, I don’t know if he’d go."
