Ange salutes Celtic and Brendan Rodgers at Tottenham press conference as he declares 'I love them'

Ange Postecoglou saluted Celtic and Brendan Rodgers at his Tottenham press conference - telling the assembled media 'I love them.'

The Spurs boss led the Hoops to back to back titles during his time in Glasgow, dominating the Scottish game just like Rodgers did in his first spell. He handed the reins back to the Irishman - who made it three league titles in a row at Rugby Park during the week and will get his hands on the trophy this weekend.

A buzzing Postecoglou admits he watched Celtic's 5-0 rout in Ayrshire as he was asked about them ahead of Tottenham's Premier League finale against Sheffield United. He said: “I love them, mate. Yeah, brilliant. Great people, great manager, great staff, great footballers. It’s an unbelievable club. I watched the game and I know, because I’ve experienced it, how that would have felt at the final whistle, then going back to Celtic Park late at night. It’s a pretty special place."
