Celtic fans are eagerly waiting for the club to spring into life in the transfer market this summer with several areas of the squad needing addressing.

Brendan Rodgers must be backed as the club aims to maintain domestic dominance while making a mark in the new-look Champions League.

Previously, the Hoops have been criticised for their continual acquisitions of young, untested players but this summer, that is set to change.

According to a report from Football Scotland, Celtic is looking to sign players over the next few weeks and months who come with a more established reputation. It is said that experienced players are being targeted ahead of youngsters who need development.

While the type of players the Hoops are recruiting is changing, their model isn’t. The club still wants to bring people in, improve them, and sell them for vast profit.

This summer, they will once again aim to do just that, but look for more quality and experience than previously.


  1. Would disagree that we are looking to remain as a selling club?
    Of course players can grow there careers with ourselves, that in turn outgrows our wage structure.
    Part of football, and many other clubs have to contend with the same issues, especially when clubs with far bigger budgets available to them, come knocking at our door?
    Yet the majority of our support understands that the way the footballing landscape lies, yet it shouldn’t be used as an excuse to stop ourselves growing either?
    The demands for better investment within the squad are continually growing, yet has remained very questionable, especially last summer?
    We still have plenty within our squad at the younger age still, and still learning there trade.
    We had enough last season in the experience bracket also within the club, yet took far longer than expected to get up to the adjustments that Rodgers introduced, but that shouldn’t be the case next season imo?
    Yet there still remains gaps within our squad, that have to be filled.
    Still believe that the gaps within it, will be filled by players further down there careers path, to reduce that gap in quality that has been in existence between 1st and 2nd choice player’s in each position imo?
    Yet, the balance within the overall squad, should hopefully look far better, and yet forming a potential pathway for the younger academy players to potentially break into the 1st team squad also?
    Might take longer than expected with the euros ongoing, that maybe we would like?
    But believe a number of our potential targets could well be involved, so looking like the waiting game could be involved?
    Downside is any of these player’s involved in the euros, for which we currently have 4, will be potentially looking at a break when they finish up in the tournament, which makes the timeline for the American pre season trip, fairly tight all the same?
    These tournament summers, especially the euros always can slow the whole process down, even moreso when we should be looking at the calibre of players involved within squads participating within it imo?
