Celtic are the third or fourth best supported club in the world- Davie Moyes sets the record straight down under

In the eyes of many Australian’s soccer starts and ends with the EPL.

The big clubs in London, Manchester and Liverpool are followed avidly with decent support roles from Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Brighton down to the relegation dogfights involving Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.

There are very little direct Australian connections to the EPL, the kick-off times are generally anti-social but that hasn’t blunted saturation coverage of ‘the greatest league in the world’.

No Australian has ever managed in the EPL but that is about to change with Ange Postecoglou in charge of Spurs, following on from Antonio Conte who needs no introduction.

The big question/fear in Oz is over how the former Socceroos boss will cope with the pressures of Spurs and the EPL.

Davie Moyes is the longest surviving manager in the EPL, asked the big question he quickly put Australian minds at rest over their concerns over whether Postecoglou could cope or not.


He’ll never get more pressure than he did managing Celtic Football Club. Celtic Football Club are probably the third or fourth best supported football club in the world, and if you manage Celtic Football Club, you’re used to pressure. So he’ll have no problem.
