THE CELTIC SQUAD has been rebuilt over the past 12 months. The activity from the club in all three windows since Ange Postecoglou came in has been busy.

The upside to bringing in a load of players at once is the stability it can bring when it comes to contracts.

TRANSFER SPECIAL

The club has been great at tying important players to long-term deals straight off the bat. Calculated gambles by the Celtic board, knowing if any of the players put on long-term deals fail, they will lose out. The opposite would be what we’re seeing with the likes of Juranovic, O’Riley, Kyogo etc. Players who are under contract with Celtic who will garner a massive fee if clubs come sniffing around.

So let’s look at Celtic’s contract situation for every first-team player:

The deals coming up next summer are small and shouldn’t really affect things. Beyond that, there are deals coming up in 2024 that Celtic will have to make a decision on in the next six months. David Turnbull is the biggest player who is in the final two years of his deal. Joe Hart also, however, given his age, there is scope for the Englishman to be replaced before then.
