Mumbai City boss Des Buckingham has reportedly been pictured in Glasgow sparking speculation amongst Celtic fans that he could be on his way to Parkhead.

The Englishman led his side to Indian Super League glory last term, after registering a record win and points tally.  

Mumbai City are part of the City group and Buckingham is part of the same agency as Ange Postecoglou, who departed Celtic for Spurs earlier this week.

Buckingham made a name for himself in New Zealand and Australia after starting out at Oxford United, where he played as a goalkeeper.

This morning Buckingham was priced at 66/1 with Sky Bet, but after the picture did the rounds on social media his odds have since tumbled.

The Englishman is now priced at 5/1, with Brendan Rodgers at 3/1 and Kjetil Knutsen the current favourite at 6/4. 

After winning the league title with Mumbai, Buckingham recently told the BBC: "Trophies can define success in some ways.

"But we scored more goals and amassed more points than anyone has ever done in the league before.

"It is the way that we went about the win and the records that were broken along the way that mean the most to me.

"We won the league at an away game in Goa so we didn't get chance to celebrate with our supporters until the final game of the season at home.

"The last time we won it was during Covid, so there was no-one in the stadium.

"To be able to share the title moment with the fans this time was very special."

Meanwhile, Ange Postecoglou insists he “will forever” be a Celtic supporter after leaving the Parkhead club for Tottenham.

He said: “I would like to sincerely thank everyone at the club for everything they have given me.

“In particular, Dermot, Peter and Michael and the Celtic Board have shown me tremendous support in every aspect of my time at Celtic and I will forever be grateful for this.

“They brought me to the club and I have worked so closely and so well with them for the past two years, I will always have a special relationship with them.

“They wanted me to extend my time at Celtic and while I am so respectful and understanding of their position, a new opportunity has been presented to me and it is one which I wanted to explore.

“It was an honour to be asked to be Celtic manager and during my two years I have given everything I have to deliver success to our supporters.

“Culminating in the treble at the weekend, my players and backroom team have been brilliant for me on this journey.

“They have given us all some fantastic moments through their energy and effort, creating real quality, winning football.

“Our supporters have been magnificent to me and I thank them for the way they have embraced me during the past two years.

“My ambition was always to give our fans a team they could be proud of, a team people talked about and I think we have achieved that.

“Celtic is a phenomenal football club and so much more – and I will forever be a supporter of this great institution. I wish everyone connected with Celtic nothing but continued success.”

Nicholson described Postecoglou as “a great football manager and a good man”, who has “served the club with such energy and determination and delivered a phenomenal level of success”.
