Celtic: Ange Postecoglou drops teasing transfer update

Ange Postecoglou has dropped an update on Celtic’s remaining January transfer plans.

What’s been said?

In recent comments cited by the Daily Record, the Hoops manager suggested that he is far from done with his dealings in the current transfer window, with the 56-year-old insisting that he still stay alert throughout January.

The Greek-Australian coach went on to state that he will make sure he brings in new additions in every position that he feels is in need of strengthening ahead of the restart of the Premiership season.

Speaking about his transfer business, Postecoglou said: “You’ve got to stay agile through this period. We’ve had a couple of players go out on loan which is also important. So we’re looking at the squad through the whole January window.

“We’ll make sure that what we need – if it’s available – we’ll bring in. I don’t expect it to be too hectic but we’ll stay alert and make sure, if the right thing comes along, both in terms of incomings and outgoings, we’ll be able to move.”

Fans will be buzzing

Considering that Celtic have already confirmed the arrivals of Japanese trio Daizen Maeda, Reo Hatate and Yosuke Ideguchi, as well as reportedly securing a move for Johnny Kenny, the news that Postecoglou is still not done with his January transfer business is sure to have left the Parkhead faithful buzzing.

Indeed, with the Bhoys currently sitting six points behind their Old Firm rivals in the Premiership title race, it is clear that they need to significantly strengthen their squad if they are to have any hope of catching and overtaking Rangers in the second half of the campaign.

Furthermore, with Celtic having suffered an extraordinarily large number of injuries so far this season – something which has often left the manager with no choice but to field players out of position, or to unleash a number of the club’s younger talents – greater strength in depth is clearly required at Parkhead in order for the Hoops to have a successful season.
