Celtic head coach Ange Postecoglou revealed that the Scottish Premiership champions are looking to make three or four more signings this transfer window. Celtic have already made five signings including Jota from Benfica and Cameron Carter-Vickers from Tottenham. After completing the domestic double, Postecolou is looking to improve the strength of his squad ahead of the upcoming season.
“We’re still looking to bring in two or three players. There are still a couple of areas where we need to strengthen up and we’ll do that. The challenge is to improve irrespective of what happened last year. If we didn’t win the title, we’d be looking to improve to try and win it,” Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou said. “If we do improve then it gives us a chance to be successful. That’s what I’ve said to the players from day one this year. It’s not about repeating last year’s success, this is about being a better version of ourselves this season on all fronts.”
“We strengthened during last season whereas this year we’re a lot more settled. It gives a chance to work on our game and get the players a better understanding of that,” he added. “I don’t think there’s a manager who would come and say they’ve had a bad pre-season or their signings aren’t good. We all say the same stuff and it’s only when the season starts that you understand where you’re at. The lesson for us is we didn’t have a great pre-season last year and it didn’t stop us from being successful. You’ve got to seek continuous improvement whatever your starting point is. It’s not just about retaining them because they had good seasons last year, for me, if they were available this year I’d sign them anyway.”
