Celtic: Noel Whelan excited by Hoops’ transfer approach

Celtic: Noel Whelan excited by Hoops’ transfer approach -Celtic News

Celtic are already looking to get ‘business done’ behind the scenes, according to former Leeds United striker Noel Whelan.

The Lowdown: Big summer ahead

Ange Postecoglou’s side have been crowned the new Scottish Premiership champions, following a wonderful first season with the Australian at the helm.

Celtic aren’t resting on their laurels ahead of an important summer transfer window, however, with reports already linking them with new signings.

Postecoglou clearly sees the importance of making significant reinforcements and he won’t be allowing this one season to get the better of his ego.

The Latest: Ange not messing around

Whelan is of course a former pro in Scotland and England, but he is also now a Leeds United employee, so knows a thing or two about club operations.

Speaking to Football Insider, he hailed the manner in which Ange is going about his transfer business ‘behind the scenes’, focusing on the interest in Mohanad Jeahze:

“You can’t question his signings so far, can you? They’ve all done really well and fitted right into his system almost seamlessly. They’ve taken to it like a duck to water.

“I love it when teams and managers go out with purpose in the summer and get their business done early doors. It just points to good scouting and hard work behind the scenes that they’ve got this deal ready to go.

“They want him through the door and up to speed, ready in time for pre-season. I think it’s brilliant to see them not taking any time off, not resting on their laurels – Celtic want to make this title theirs next season as well.”

The Verdict: Exciting times for Hoops

With the title recaptured and Champions League football sealed, there is no denying that this is a wonderful time to be a Celtic supporter.

Qualifying for Europe’s top club competition massively increases their chances of signing higher calibre players, enhancing the Hoops’ hopes of more success in the process.

The dream is that the likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers and Jota sign permanently this summer, while a sprinkling of magic in other key areas would also take Celtic up another level. A big-money striker wouldn’t go amiss, for example, with Liel Abada their top scorer in the league in 2021/22 with just ten goals.
