Ange Postecoglou reacts to his double signing spree

Ange Postecoglou has spoken of his delight at the signings of both Aaron Mooy and Moritz Jenz respectively. The two men put pen-to-paper on deals that will keep them in Glasgow for at least a year, after Mooy signed a one-year contract and Jenz starts a season-long loan deal with the option to make it permanent next summer.

We have had to patient of late when it has come to these two most recent additions, however, the wait has definitely been worth it as Ange finally adds the missing pieces of phase two in his revolution at Parkhead. After the confirmation of Mooy and Jenz, he was recorded by the Celtic Official Website saying: “I’m delighted that we’ve been able to bring in both Aaron and Moritz to the club, and I’m sure they’ll be great additions to our squad.

“I obviously know Aaron from my time coaching the Australian national team, and he brings with him a wealth of experience at both club and international level. Moritz is a player we’ve been aware for a while now, and I’m pleased that we’ve been able to sign him.

“They’ve already had the chance to meet the rest of the squad, and I’m sure they’ll settle in very quickly into what is a very welcoming group of players, and I know that our supporters will be looking forward to seeing them both in a Celtic jersey.”

This latest signing spree makes it number five and number six of the window so far. After the completion of deals for Daizen Maeda, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Jota, the powerbrokers backed Ange further with the capture of Benjamin Seigrist and Lanus’ Alexandro Bernabei to compete with Greg Taylor at left-back this forthcoming season.

After the departures of servants Tom Rogic and Nir Bitton, the Celtic midfield needed beefing up and Aaron Mooy will certainly bring a bit more steel but also some craft and guile on the ball. His link-up with Callum McGregor, Reo Hatate and Matt O’Riley should be something special as we look ahead to the Scottish Premiership kicking-off.

Meanwhile, Moritz is comfortable playing on the left-hand side of the defence and will be an able deputy if something should happen to our main starters Cameron Carter-Vickers and Swedish international Carl Starfelt. His arrival should pave the way for Christopher Jullien to leave after three years at Paradise.

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.

  1. Fantastic signings 2 players at the midfield area that beefs the Midfield to the goalkeeper up quite a bit
    Once they get to meld with the rest of the team that should do it for now
