Ange Postecoglou has given a massive vote of confidence to his Celtic squad. If I were in that dressing room I’d be champing at the bit to get out there on Monday night against Hibs and prove him right.Postecoglou ’s declaration that the transfer window is now closed for him came as a surprise to many fans.
Perhaps it shouldn’t have been. He said he hated the situation of last summer when he was having to pull players off planes and stick them into a season already up and running.He clearly wanted any signings this month to be in the door before the Premiership season resumed.
The fact the break was brought forward has just moved his business dates.I’m sure there is a caveat. If anything happens to someone in a key position before February 1 I’m sure he’d move for a replacement – or if a golden nugget suddenly becomes available that he can get in the door without fuss or major outlay.But in making his declaration he’s telling his boys in the building he’s got complete faith in them to deliver more success.
On the face of it, he’s got enough. All right, you wouldn’t want Joe Hart getting injured but the rest of the squad seems strong.Get all the latest Celtic news sent straight to your Inbox every day by signing up to our newsletter.We cover every morsel of information regarding your favourite club in the form of articles, videos and podcasts.The newsletter will arrive every day at 12pm, giving you a round up of the best stories we've covered that in the last 24 hours.To sign up, simply enter your email address into the link here.And if you aren't already, make sure you join the conversation over on our Celtic Facebook group and Record Sport Instagram.Four centre-backs in Cameron Carter-Vickers, Carl Starfelt, StephenRead more on dailyrecord.co.uk
