The transfer window officially opened yesterday and clubs can now conclude their transfer business for the upcoming campaign.

Celtic have been reportedly looking at a few players, and with the window now officially open it’s imperative that we break the habit of a lifetime by acting quickly and get one or two new faces in the door in the coming weeks.

Euro 2024 may be now in full swing, but that doesn’t mean we need to stop in our recruitment pursuit. Football is 24/7 nowadays especially when it comes to negotiating transfer fees and salaries.

We need a minimum of four first team ready players in the door before the season kicks off in August and hopefully add a couple of more new faces before the window slams shut.

Acting quickly and decisive will not only benefit the playing squad, but create a feel good feeling amongst the supporters, who have understandably been left disappointed these past couple of years through our lackadaisical approach to recruitment.

Let’s hope the next few weeks sees us conclude a few deals that’s sees the arrival of a new faces at Celtic Park.

  1. It’s dealing with agents this time of year that can slow everything down for ourselves, especially in the European market?
    The Asian market seemed so much easier and quicker to be able to conclude deals, but somehow wouldn’t say Rodgers is that interested in continuing with the Asian markets any longer imo?
    When you see Vata having to look at 15 offers, then it only highlights the minefield we have to operate within, and even more so with the price bracket also?
    We are in a much stronger position than a lot of clubs with what’s on offer as a career opportunity, but agents for decades are more interested in the money angle?
    You would like to think that our ground work has been done in identifying targets, instead of this sit back and wait and see what develops over the window, which seemed to be in operation for many a long transfer window?
    With ourselves playing our cards so close to our chest, it remains nothing more than a guessing game upon what is actually going on, so patience is required on our behalf to see what should unfold?
    Easier said than done, especially with trust within the board is so low currently, just another factor in play also, and another pretty big one also imo?
