Latest: Ange drops exciting Celtic summer transfer update
Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has given an insight into his potential summer transfer dealings and is working on getting new signings in as soon as possible, as reported by Football Scotland.
The Aussie has already claimed success in the Viaplay Cup this campaign and will hope to add the Scottish Premiership and Scottish Cup to his trophy collection before the season draws to a close.
Latest: Ange Postecoglou details Celtic transfer plans
Celtic have developed a healthy habit of bringing in new acquisitions in the early phase of transfer windows, something that was further evidenced in January by the purchases of Alistair Johnston, Yuki Kobayashi and Tomoki Iwata.
Oh Hyeon-gyu arrived slightly later in the window, though was in Glasgow well before deadline day, which is early by the Hoops’ standards in windows prior to Postecoglou being appointed.
Heading into this summer, it looks as if we could be set for another flurry of arrivals to bolster the squad ahead of the 2023/24 campaign commencing.
Speaking to Football Scotland, Postecoglou stated:
“We are always trying to improve and as you said the results have been outstanding. As importantly, so have the performances. We are really strong and we are getting stronger
“That is always our focus. Sometimes the performances are not always there even when the results are but we have kind of married the two this year for the most part which has been great.
“We want to continue that until the end of the year and be strong. Yes, we are constantly looking at how we can be stronger for next year.
“If you look at every window since I have been here, we have strengthened and we are already doing work to make sure we come out of the next window even stronger than when we enter it.
“That has got to be our ambition every time we enter this process. Getting them in early has worked well for us. It’s allowed players to come in and settle and contribute straight away and we will continue to do that.”
Exciting times ahead for Celtic under Ange Postecoglou
Once again, Postecoglou seems to be sending the right signals surrounding his intention to improve the playing squad this summer.
Should Celtic secure the Scottish Premiership title, they will once again earn automatic entry to the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, which will motivate everyone connected with the club to upgrade on specific positions to give us a fighting chance of competing with the European elite.
Forward planning is important if the Hoops are to realise these aims and Postecoglou will no doubt be looking to spearhead another recruitment drive that will hopefully pay dividends come the start of the new season.
