New Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou will spend his 10-day quarantine assessing transfer targets for the Hoops, according to The Scottish Sun.   

The Lowdown: Postecoglou announced

The Hoops finally confirmed Postecoglou as their new manager, almost two weeks on from making him their main target after a breakdown in talks with Eddie Howe.

Postecoglou left Yokohama F. Marinos to sign a 12-month rolling contract with Celtic, with the club sharing the news on Thursday morning.

The Australian’s final game in charge of the Japanese side came on Wednesday, losing to fourth-tier side Honda FC in the domestic cup.

The Latest: Postecoglou’s quarantine plans

The Scottish Sun shared a story on the 55-year-old on Thursday evening.

They claimed Postecoglou will ‘spend much of his quarantine assessing potential transfer targets’ – an exciting nine-word claim on the new man in charge in Glasgow.

Postecoglou could well be set for a busy summer, especially with star men Kristoffer Ajer and Odsonne Edouard making it clear they want to leave the club over the coming months.

The Verdict: Spine key for Postecoglou

With the new Celtic boss looking at possible additions, plenty of areas to strengthen may well come to light.

Should Ajer leave however, that could leave Postecoglou with just one fit senior centre-back in Stephen Welsh due to Christoper Jullien’s injury.

If Edouard departs, you’d also expect a new prolific centre-forward would be required.

The void left by Scott Brown in the middle of midfield may also need to be filled, so the spine of the side is going to need some serious work if the Hoops are to seriously challenge rivals Rangers next season.

Flair players on the flanks are a luxury any manager would love to have, but the new Hoops boss must immediately focus his attention on building a proper core through the middle of the his XI.
