Chris Sutton insists it's no shock to see Ange Postecoglou on Tottenham's managerial shortlist.

It emerged yesterday that the Celtic boss is high on Spurs' wishlist as they search for a new gaffer this summer.

The London club had initially set their sights on Feyenoord title winner Arne Slot. 

However, after discovering the near £20million package they'd need to pay to release him from his contract in The Netherlands, the Premier League club have turned their attention elsewhere. 

Postecoglou is said to be on their radar to permanently replace Antonio Conte, who left his position in March this year.

Luis Enrique, Julian Nagelsmann, and Ruben Amorin are also still under consideration.

And ex-Celtic star Chris Sutton admits fans are right to be worried about Postecoglou's future, as Spurs could make him an offer he can't refuse.

He told the Daily Record: “I’m not shocked Postecoglou is high up on Spurs’ list. I’m more surprised he wasn’t high up on it in the first place and it’s taken a few to drop out of the running for him to move up.

"I would love Postecoglou to stay at Celtic. It’s a huge job and there is unfinished business for him at Celtic Park, like the Champions League.

“But I am also a realist and I know Spurs would be a huge draw. We don’t know what Postecoglou is thinking but it’s not a leap to believe he would want to test himself in the English Premier League one day.

“He’s been linked with numerous jobs down south and there is a feeling clubs are starting to sit up and take notice of his achievements in Scotland, but also his CV from Japan and Australia. It’s clear they now know he’s a top class coach. Celtic fans are right to be concerned.

“I know Spurs have their issues but this is not a club struggling at the foot of the division in danger of relegation. Even after an apparently disastrous campaign, they have still been in the running for the Champions League places.

“When you look at the stadium and the finances, there is huge potential. There’s been problems, of course. Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte – two of the best managers in the world – couldn’t crack it at Spurs. But watching Postecoglou, he will have the self-confidence and belief he could be a success there.

“I speak to a lot of Spurs fans on the radio and a lot of them are fed up with the way the club play. They were sick of the style of football under Jose. They were sick of the defensive approach under Conte.

“There is a historical demand for entertaining, attacking football at the club – and Postecoglou ticks those boxes. I’m sure a lot of Spurs fans would be happy to see him come in, even if he might not be the big name appointment some of the other candidates might be.

“This is a club that is craving silverware – they’ve only won one trophy in 20 years. Postecoglou is a serial winner. But Postecoglou would back himself. Would he be tempted? Of course he would be.

“He has been in the game long enough to know you sometimes have to move when you are hot. Celtic will be aware of it as well.

"They know he won’t be around forever and I’ve got no doubt they will have a contingency plan in place. But I would think even Celtic fans would understand if he made that decision, even if they would be desperately disappointed.”
