Celtic defender Greg Taylor has insisted that new additions in the summer window will only be a positive thing for this Hoops side.

The left-back nailed down a starting place in Postecoglou’s defensive backline and played a big part in Celtic’s title push, particularly in the second half of the campaign.

Despite his impressive displays, Celtic have recently been linked with additions in the transfer window, including a move for another left-back in Mohanad Jeahze from Swedish side Hammarby.

Speaking to the Daily Record, the full-back has admitted that new additions to the Celtic squad in areas all over the pitch will only help this team improve going into next season.

The 24-year old stated that those inside the dressing room want to turn this side from a ‘good team’ into a ‘great’ one, and this summer could provide Postecoglou with an opportunity to do so.

He said: “I think we need that. We can’t rest on what we have achieved so far.

“We have had a successful season, winning the double, but we need to progress next year. We want to be bigger and better, and I think by bringing bodies that pushes everyone on again.

“It has been a new way of playing, but it has been one I’ve enjoyed learning. I continue to try and learn from it because we know as a team we are not the finished article yet.

“We are a good team. But we want to become a great one.

“Hopefully, over the next few months, we can do that.”

This is Celtic side are desperate to go on to bigger and better things

We are just off the back of an impressive campaign, which saw the Bhoys produce an incredible turnaround.

However, this Celtic side arent just wanting to settle for that. The message from the players is that they want to go on and do bigger things.

Taylor is the latest to send out that same message, almost insisting that Posteocglou is backed in order to allow the 56-year old to turn this Celtic team into something even better.

The manager was clear in his message at the end of the season that this was exactly what he wanted to do heading into next season.

Scottish football should be fearful!
