Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has admitted that the club has ‘hesitated’ on certain transfer dealings as he stated the need for new faces once again.
As quoted by the Daily Record, it is quite clear to see that the former Socceroos manager is in desperate need of signings to add to his squad, and the 55-year old admitted they could have moved faster as he reiterated the need for additions.
“We probably hesitated a couple of times and could have moved faster on some things.
“That hasn’t helped us. In normal circumstances, these processes are fairly straightforward. Get a player, sign him, take him on a plane, take a photo and away he goes.
“That process is now taking two to three weeks. That’s where we’ve got to move a little bit more precisely, understand there’s going to be lag time and move a bit quicker.”
Despite the slight change in the way transfer dealings are complete, due to Covid and current restrictions across the globe, for some, this shouldn’t be used as an excuse.
In certain positions, such as right-back, it has been evidently clear that the first team would need new signings as early as February/March time.
So once again, fans are left frustrated by the club’s lack of preparations going into the Champions League qualifiers, as we have done so many times in the past.
