Daily Record journalist Anthony Haggerty believes that Celtic still need to sign as many as three new players in this transfer window.
The Scottish giants have embarked on an aggressive summer of recruitment to strengthen the squad of new boss Ange Postecoglou.
The club have brought in left winger Kyogo Furuhashi from Vissel Kobe, centre-back Carl Starfelt from Rubin Kazan, right winger Liel Abada from M Petah Tikva, right-back Josip Juranovic from Legia Warsaw, goalkeeper Joe Hart from Tottenham Hotspur, midfielder James McCarthy on a free transfer, and midfielder Liam Shaw and defender Osaze Urhoghide from Sheffield Wednesday.
Will Postecoglou lead Celtic to the title this season?
The club have opened their season with a mixed bag of results, being knocked out of the Champions League at the qualifying stage, and winning two and losing one of their Premiership games.
Haggerty thinks more is needed in defence, while there is also the requirement to sign a striker to prepare for the potential loss of Odsonne Edouard, amid links with the likes of Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace.
He said: “They still need a centre-half and a right-back. Christopher Jullien is still a bit away from coming back into the fold, I still think they need another centre-back, even though Stephen Welsh and Carl Starfelt are doing okay, there’s still that worry that that’s maybe the weakest link in the Celtic team.
“Another midfielder would be a bonus but they certainly need another striker to offset the potential of Edouard leaving.”
