Celtic assistant assures fans over transfers

Celtic won’t be making any panic buys this summer, according to assistant manager Chris Davies.

The Express are reporting that the club remain calm in their attempts to bolster their squad, despite their worrying first leg defeat to Lincoln Red Imps FC.

Celtic fans have vented their concern that Brendan Rodgers’ side are yet to bring in enough players this summer, with Moussa Dembele the only notable addition.

But Davies has assured fans the club are trying to bring in new players, but only if they believe they will improve the team:

“It would be a big boost for us if we can get people in who are going to make the difference.” Said Davies.

“But the most important thing is that it’s the right player, rather than rushing in and doing something hasty that maybe isn’t right.

The Scottish champions face off against Kazakhstan champions Astana in their next UEFA Champions League encounter, playing the first-leg of their third round qualifying tie away from home next Wednesday.

Celtic then host Astana a week later. Their first league fixture is away to Hearts on August 7th.
