Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has delivered his verdict on Celtic’s January transfer business.

The Hoops manager rated the deals done by the club as “very good”.

He also described the news that Scott Brown signed a new two-year deal with the Hoops as “very important”.

Rodgers delivered his opinion on the transfers on the Celtic Twitter account.

The Hoops ended up making a fair few signings in January.

An exciting seven days for Celtic fans is about to get underway

The club also made some intriguing looking permanent signings.

Ukrainian winger Maryan Shved signed on a long term deal, as did Ivorian forward Vakoun Issouf Bayo.

Deals were also agreed for American duo Manny Perez and Andrew Gutman, but they will be sent out on loan.

The signings that the club has brought in should be more than good enough to get the Celts over the line to their eighth league title in a row.

Burke and Weah have already made impressions, whilst Toljan should provide competition to Mikael Lustig at right-back.

It will also be interesting to see how the new signings fare in Europe, with the Europa League clashes against Valencia on the horizon.

Perhaps retaining Brown will prove to be the biggest signing of the lot, as Rodgers will look to him to drive the side on to the title.

All in all, the January transfer window looks to have been more than decent for Celtic.
