Patience please – Brendan’s just in the door, let’s give him time to work his magic

Brendan Rodgers has not even been in the Celtic hot seat a month, yet there are supporters who are already being critical of his dealings or lack of dealings in the transfer market.

I think it’s more than unfair to expect an avalanche of signings in such a short space of time. The Celtic manager will have players in mind that he wants at the club make no mistake, but these things take time.

He’s only been in the door a matter of minutes, he has to run the rule over the squad he has at his disposal and get to know their strengths and weaknesses. He can’t do everything at once. Cut him some slack.

Currently Brendan is assessing the defensive situation and is making moves to bring in a centre back, that’s progress. One or two more are likely to follow and will be added to new faces such as Marco Tilio, Odin Thiago Holm, Yang Hyun-Jun and Kwon Hyeok- kyu.

All those new faces and possibly more alongside a treble winning squad is progress. Brendan knows what he’s doing and is doing his best. It will slowly come together and we will be ready for the start of the new season, be very sure of that.

    I understand your point of view but frustration is growing amongst the support.
    All the talk of a large budget for the manager to spend, and making an impact in Europe, but to achieve that there needs to be an improvement in the quality within the squad.
    Currently we’ve sold one of our top five players and used the money to buy “projects”. I’m not saying these guys are no good but the pressure will really be on them from the off and that is unnecessary.
    We’ve essentially told the world, in the stock market statement, that we have lots of money yet we have only drip fed the money from Jota back into a couple of players. (at the time of writing neither Korean player has signed).
    Granted Rodgers may have different ideas for targets but, if it is true he was approached after the Cup Semifinal, then he has had a while to identify targets in our price range.
    There is therefore no excuse for this lack of activity……….. unless Lawwell is back with his hands on the purse strings and that will not end well.
