When Ange Postecoglou joined Tottenham Hotspur from Celtic in the summer, not many at Hotspur Way knew what they were going to get.
Celtic fans knew exactly what he was all about because he delivered a historic and entertaining Treble during his final season at the club.
The 26-year-old thrived in the J-League before he was snapped up by Ange Postecoglou at Celtic where he went on to become a key player for the team.
In the summer, there was talk of the Japan international possibly leaving, but instead, he signed a new contract until 2028.
Reo Hatate at Tottenham
“If it’s one of the Japanese players, it would more likely be Hatate, more than the other two,” said Miller.
“My concern would be, and I know Ange obviously signed him and he knew him well that’s why he brought him over, he had a wonderful season or half-season last year. But I think the injuries and I don’t think his form has been particularly great in the last 8-10 months.
“Do I think he can play at the top of his game? Absolutely I do. He came in and he looked all energy and an all-action midfielder. He can be building the play alongside Callum McGregor also. We have seen the goals he has scored in the early stages of his Celtic career as well. He can see a pass. Very, very comfortable on the ball.
“So, I think he could fit into the English Premier League – there are a lot of questions if he would go to Tottenham. But if it was going to be one of the Japanese players, then Hatate would be at the top of that for me.”
Reo Hatate is a Premier League-quality player
There is no doubt that he is one of Celtic’s best players and one of the best to watch when he is on song.
A player who can take the ball in tight situations, he loves to add flair to his game, can carry it forward and be a goal threat.
Hatate is one of Celtic’s most valuable assets and someone they would want to desperately keep, even if he is worthy of playing for a top Premier League team.
Brendan Rodgers wants to help the Bhoys progress and get better in Europe during these coming years and if that is to happen, then he needs to keep hold of Hatate.
