ANGE POSTECOGLOU has welcomed a host of players to Celtic since he arrived in the summer. His signings have been superb, barely getting any wrong.

Speaking to the Celtic View, he gave fans an update on Yosuke Ideguchi. While doing so, he also said something that fans will love.

“He’s probably been the unluckiest of the lot in that he got an injury early on just when he got himself to fitness, and it’s been a bit frustrating for him that I haven’t been able to give him more game-time.”

The injury came at an unlucky time for the player. Just as he looked ready to start his Parkhead career, he was sidelined for a few weeks. Hopefully, fans will get to see more of the player before the end of the season.

“But with all of these guys, I didn’t buy them for the first 6 months. They’re here for the next 3 or 4 years and I’ve no doubt he’ll [Ideguchi] become an important player for us over the course of time.”

This is brilliant for Celtic, and this should mean that there should be no high profile exits this summer. Postecoglou’s new signings have put pen-to-paper on four or five-year deals, showing commitment to the club.

“He’s a team-focused guy and even when he’s not playing, you see him in training and he’s our hardest worker and that raises the levels for everyone.

“He knew what he was getting into so he’s adjusted really well and as a family they’ve made that decision and this is where they see their future and I think all those kinds of things help.”

It’s great to hear that the former Leeds man is pulling his weight in training. Postecoglou has a plan in mind. Hopefully, it can materialise over the coming games.
