Ally McCoist told TalkSPORT on Tuesday morning – as per Leeds Live – that he would drive Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou to Leeds United amid reports the Aussie is being linked with a move to Elland Road in the coming days.
Postecoglou, 57, has starred in his role as Celtic manager since joining the club in the summer of 2018. He joined the Bhoys with Rangers flying high, having won the League title unbeaten during the 2020-21 term under Steven Gerrard.
But he instantly turned Celtic’s fortunes around. He won the League, and currently, sits nine points clear at the top of the Premiership table. Celtic remain on course to win the treble – the first time to do so since the Brendan Rodgers era.
TMW, among a number of sites, say £42k-a-week Postecoglou is on the Leeds radar. McCoist says he would drive the Celtic boss to Leeds – but probably, more because he is doing a good job at Celtic, and McCoist is a Rangers legend.
“He is very good. If Terry the truck driver is going to pick Neil [Warnock] up then I could head up to Glasgow and pick big Ange up,” McCoist told talkSPORT, as per Leeds Live, after a fan named Terry called up to suggest Warnock as boss.

Postecoglou would be a sensational appointment. Reports indicate that Leeds have begun the interview process but are only talking to managers currently in a job. So, it rules out the likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Ralph Hasenhuttl.
But the chances of the Aussie gaffer – who was described as “relentless” by one of his coaching staff, Harry Kewell – leaving Celtic seem unlikely. Celtic sit top of the Premiership table and he looks more than likely to remain in Glasgow.
