talkSPORT understands Celtic are bracing themselves for the Australian to leave following the conclusion of the clash on Saturday.

Though, Postecoglou has claimed he has not thought about his future, and is solely focussing on the final.

“It doesn’t register,” he said. “I get that people love to speculate on these things but we’ve worked really, really hard to get ourselves into this position.

“For me to let my mind wander about anything else other than getting our team prepared for a big day on Saturday, it’s just not who I am.”

Since his arrival at Glasgow in the summer of 2021, he has overhauled the Celtic squad, winning back-to-back Premiership title and League Cup trophies.

A win over Inverness would also secure a domestic treble, and make it five trophies out of a possible six since his arrival.

Postecoglou, who is on a 12-month rolling contract, has previously been linked with the Everton and Chelsea job.

He believes his players will not be affected with the latest news surrounding his future.

“We’ve done this dance a few times this year so I think the players are well aware of where my thoughts lie,” he added.

“Whatever it is, the players are really good at just focusing on what’s important – and what’s important is getting ready for a big game on Saturday.

“It doesn’t enter my sphere of thinking because my role is to make sure my team is absolutely prepared for whatever the next challenge is.

“Far be it from me to say that if a cup final isn’t enough for me to draw all my attention to that then nothing will be.”
