Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou wants any January signings to be brought in early to help them integrate with the rest of the squad. The Austrian is eager to gather momentum into the second half of the season. Celtic have looked a much-improved side under Postecolou but a 0-0 draw against St Mirren meant they trail Rangers by six points going into the new year. Postecoglou will be delighted to have Christopher Julien and Karamako Dembele back from injuries after the winter break.
“We’ve got a plan in place, obviously now we know there is some certainty around fixtures and when our first game back is, we will come up with a plan where hopefully we will get some of our guys who are injured back on the training field which would be great and also bring in a few (players).” Celtic coach Ange Postecoglou said.
“I don’t think I will ever go through another transfer period like I did when with the first one when we had to bring in 12, that was something unique I think,” he added. “This time we can be a little more measured, we’ve been working on it a lot longer, so, I know what we want. It’s still challenging, it’s not a precise science, but hopefully, we get the ones we want we get them in early.”
“As a Celtic supporter all my life, I will do everything I can to drive the club forward, working at all times in the best interests of Celtic.” the new chief executive said. “I look forward to working with Ange, the Board, our colleagues, and supporters in order to advance as a club, proud of our traditions and dedicated to constant improvement.”
