Neil McCann reckons there’s no way Ange Postecoglou leaves his job at Celtic “half finished” to join Leeds. But he echoed Barry Ferguson in admitting the rest of Scottish football might just be encouraging him to go.

He said on Sportscene: “I don’t think it will happen now. Ange never gives anything away and he never gives any oxygen to the fire either. He just kills the questions off very quickly because he’s just there to do a job for Celtic.
“You can clearly see he’s got a lot of passion for the club. I would be very surprised if he walked out, even for such a great job at Leeds. I’d be surprised to see Ange walk out on a job that’s half done.
“There’s nothing won yet. He’s got the League Cup final, he’s into the quarter-finals of the Scottish and they’ve got a comfortable lead in the Premiership. I don’t think he’ll be rushing away, I don’t see him as that type of guy.

“Unless they come with a truck full of money for him and offer him something he wants in terms of football (incentives), because I don’t think he’s driven by money. It would have to be a football thing.
“Everybody else would like to see him disappear because he’s doing such a good job. But I can’t see him doing it.”
