43-year-old reacts to Celtic links



Graham Potter has laughed off suggestions that he could leave Swansea to takeover as manager of Scottish giants Celtic in the summer.

The 43-year-old only arrived at The Liberty Stadium from Swedish side Ostersunds last summer, but has already been linked with a move to Celtic Park.

The Glasgow based side are currently being managed by former boss Neil Lennon on an interim basis, after Brendan Rodgers left to take charge of Premier League side Leicester at the end of February.

Potter however, does not appear to be interested in a move North of the border. Speaking about the links to Wales Online,  Potter said: “It’s just speculation in the media. I had a laugh with (Rangers supporting Swansea striker) Oli McBurnie about it but it’s just speculation. I’ve had no contact with Celtic.

“I don’t really think about it to be honest. I’ve got a job to do here. You can’t stop the stories in the papers but I just do my best and help the players.”

Since joining Swansea last summer, Potter has won 16, drawn eight and lost 17 of his 41 league games in charge of the Wales based side to leave them 13th in the Championship in their first season following relegation from the Premier League.

The verdict

This will be something of a relief for Swansea.

After a slow start Swansea have started to look more like the play-off contenders many expected them to be in recent weeks – the thrashing at QPR aside.

Losing Potter now would only serve to set that development back further as they look to move back up the divsions rather than down them again.
