British shock jock says new Rangers manager will 'get his backside handed to him' by Ange Postecoglou

Celtic FC Manager Ange Postecoglou Rangers

British shock jock Simon Jordan believes that the newly appointed Rangers FC manager will "get his backside handed to him" by Ange Postecoglou.

The Ibrox club announced the appointment of Michael Beale will as Giovanni van Bronckhorst's successor last week and wasted no time that his side can claw back the 9 point deficit they have on Scottish Premiership league leaders Celtic FC.

Beale's new role comes just a year after leaving the Light Blues for Aston Villa as part of Steven Gerrard's backroom staff, and just a few months after Queens Park Rangers gave him his first job as a boss.

However, his comments about loyalty to QPR in the wake of rejecting Wolves back in October have come back to haunt him now that he has jumped ship to Rangers. Former Crystal Palace owner Jordan has been one of his biggest critics in that regard but he's now taken it one step further.

talkSPORT pundit Jordan insists Celtic are far ahead of where Rangers are right now, both in terms of their finances and in the dugout, and reckons Beale will be in for a rude awakening.

He said: "This guy, in my view, will get his backside handed to him by Celtic.

"Celtic are miles away in terms of their dugout and their financial section. I think he will reap what he sows.

"There are too many football managers out there who don't understand that it's not about taking every opportunity, but taking the right opportunity.

"Loyalty is a two-way transaction. The bottom line is QPR gave him an opportunity, nobody else game him that. He was going from being an assistant manager, which is vastly different.

"Integrity and decency and loyalty are things that will carry you much further."

Postecoglou became the manager of on 10 June 2021, making him the first Australian manager to coach a major club in Europe. Celtic, who had just lost their league title to Rangers for the first time in a decade, had abruptly missed out on hiring English manager Eddie Howe.

The new appointment was mocked by Celtic fan and talkSPORT presenter Alan Brazil, who apologised on his show a year later, after Postecoglou had won the league and league cup.

Former Australian Celtic player Tom Rogic reflected on the atmosphere at the appointment: "I laugh sometimes when I look back. Although I knew him quite well, there was a perception of: 'Who's this guy?'".

Meanwhile, Patrick Kinsorbo will look to add another layer to the City Football Group connection with Celtic as he aims to seek out Ange Postecoglou for advice.

The Australian has taken charge of ES Troyes AC in Ligue 1, his first job abroad after time in the A-League at Melbourne City, who are also owned by a collection of clubs including Manchester City.

Celtic are no strangers to dealing with the group, having landed Postecoglou from Yokohama Marinos while players like Patrick Roberts, Jeremie Frimpong and Jason Denayer have all swapped blue for green and white in recent years.

Celtic's boss knows all about the CFG structure Kinsorbo has moved in and according to Australian Associated Press, will reach out to 'pick the brains' of his fellow Victorian expat and ex-Rangers man Kevin Muscat, now managing Marinos.

Kinsorbo said: "We all have ambitions and for me, it’s not any different. I want to be one of the best coaches in the world.

“I’ve been given this opportunity that not many people get and I’m very grateful and humbled to have that. It’s great, now you can see that Australian coaches are good – they hold value.

“We do a lot back home so hopefully there’s other coaches that have the opportunity to come overseas because the more Australian coaches that come overseas, the better.

“People don’t understand how hard it is just to do what coaches do to get these opportunities, because it’s very difficult.

“All I want is our game to grow in Australia, and if I can be a little help in that, it’s great."
