New Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has given fans a small insight into the club’s transfer plans this summer, insisting the Hoops are conducting a global search for recruits.
As quoted by the Sun, the 55-year old revealed that the club is covering far and wide across the globe for new signings as he looks for players to fit the new system that he is looking to implement on his side.
“In terms of player signings, we’re working hard at the moment to try to bring in the right type.
“I’m not really fussed about nationalities.
“I look for players who I think will fit into what we’re doing here and fit into the style of football that I want to play.
“We’re casting the net far and wide for that.
“To be fair, I’ve just been training ground-hotel for the last seven days. It’s been pretty busy.”
In recent years, some fans haven’t been too happy with the business done by the club, with not enough focus going on a player fitting the system but rather the fact they come from a club down south.
We saw an example of this down south with Shane Duffy, who did not fit how a Celtic side looks to play going forward.
So it is encouraging to see we are searching far and wide to find players who will suit the football that Postecoglou is looking to play.
The former Socceroos coach has contacts far and wide, which could come in handy in the search for fresh faces to add to the squad.
