Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has revealed talks have taken place during the international break with the board surrounding the club’s future.
As quoted by BBC Sport, the former Socceroos boss opened up on talks between himself and current interim CEO Michael Nicholson – discussing the January transfer window and more appointments within the football department during a ‘major rebuild’ for the club.
“We are working together to put up the pillars,” the manager said.
“We have some immediate concerns obviously, and that’s around the football department and looking into January.”
He continued, saying: “If I keep getting that support, I’m really confident we will bring in the right kind of players in January that we will need to bolster the squad, and then we will have a good foundation for what’s ahead,” he said.
“There is no doubt this has been a major rebuild. That’s not just an opinion – that’s a fact. To bring in 12 players in one window that pretty much signifies that you building something completely new.”
With the plans of a rebuild behind the scenes floating around in the past couple of months, supporters have been waiting on more progress in order to take the club in the right direction.
We have slowly started to see that with the appointment of a new head of sports science, Anton McElhone, and comments like this from Ange are very encouraging.
Of course, there is still a lot of work to be done on and off the field at Celtic, which is evidently clear.
However, with Ange Postecoglou at the helm, more fans are continuing to see the positive signs he is bringing around the club. Hopefully, we can continue to see that in the coming months with more appointments behind the scenes.
