Ange Postecoglou is delighted to sign up goalkeeper Ben Siegrist on a four-year contract at Celtic.

The Bhoys announced the second signing of the summer earlier this evening, after the recent move to bring Cameron Carter-Vickers to the club on a permanent basis.

Siegrist has already laid out his intentions to push Joe Hart for the number one spot in the Celtic team, demonstrating a hunger to impress coaches and supporters.

The Celtic boss told the official club website: “I am really pleased to welcome Ben to Celtic and we look forward to working with him. I have had really positive discussions with him.

“I know he is hugely enthusiastic about this opportunity and also that he is someone who will add real competition to our goalkeeping position.

“We all saw last season the ability that Ben has, as time and again he delivered fantastic performances.

“He is a really talented keeper with the ambition to always work, to develop himself further and to achieve success and I think in signing Ben we have made a very important addition to our squad.”

Postecoglou has wasted no time in making needed additions to the squad and Siegrist won’t be his last signing of the summer transfer window.

Reports of an imminent permanent move for Jota continue to persist, while Alexandro Bernabei looks closer to a move to Glasgow every day.

If the Bhoys can also bring in a combative midfielder then we’ll be well on the way to building a strong enough squad for the coming campaign with plenty of time left in the transfer window for more.

Celtic are not messing about this year.
