Reliable reporter Alan Nixon has admitted he is ‘expecting’ Celtic to make ‘panic moves soon’ when it comes to transfers.
The Lowdown: Plenty of rumours
Ange Postecoglou has made three big-money signings so far this summer in Liel Abada, Kyogo Furuhashi and Carl Starfelt.
There have been plenty of rumours since those three deals went through, with right-backs Aurelio Buta and Josip Juranovic and goalkeepers Joe Hart and Ben Foster linked with a move to Parkhead. There have also been rumours in France to forwards Diego Costa and Jean-Kevin Augustin.
However, Starfelt remains Celtic’s latest addition, with that transfer going through nine days ago.
Since then, the Hoops have been knocked out of the Champions League, and Nixon didn’t exactly have good news for Celtic supporters.
The Latest: Nixon’s post
He replied, admitting he has ‘not heard anything’ – a worrying three-word update.
“Not heard anything … but expecting panic moves soon.”
How many more signings do Celtic need this summer?
The Verdict: Not ideal…
With Nixon not hearing of any potential Celtic incomings, it appears to be a worrying time in Glasgow.
The Hoops get their Scottish Premiership campaign underway on Saturday evening and, to take right-back, for instance, Postecoglou has two inexperienced players in Anthony Ralston and Lee O’Connor to choose from against Hearts.
However, it seems as if Celtic fans will have to wait even longer for any more additions.
