Ange Postecoglou knows what is needed to bring Celtic to the next level and part of it undoubtedly involves the transfer market this summer.

The Bhoys boss was asked in his press conference today what’s needed at the club to bring his team to new heights.

While obviously not specifying positions, Postecoglou did suggest high-quality signings are on the way.

The Australian said [Celtic YouTube]: “There are a number of areas where I think this season, in the earlier part of the year, we did not have the depth in quality in certain positions to be able to carry the workload of having a 60-game season.

“We are still in the stages of developing our players and developing our game style and, for me, there are still areas without specifying positions where I think we can have more quality in terms of our depth and in terms of the level of performance we put in.

“There won’t be the amount of activity that we had last season but I think the activity we have this year will be significant. We will hopefully bring players that will improve us immediately rather than sort of bring players in who will just add to the squad.”

This is music to the ears of supporters. Although the team aren’t quite over the line in the Premiership title race, plans are obviously underway for next term. We want to hear this kind of vision from the manager.

Postecoglou has stressed on multiple occasions that Celtic are far from the finished product right now. He thinks there’s much more to come from this group. He will be ruthless in pursuing that.

With Celtic guaranteed Champions League football if we win the title too, there’s no reason for hesitation. The manager will be looking to get his transfer work early, just like January.
