Celtic transfer news: Ange Postecoglou targets ‘one or two’ more signings | Soccer News


Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou could further strengthen his squad ahead of the transfer deadline but has played down links with Barcelona striker Alex Collado.

The Scottish champions have made seven signings so far this summer, including permanent deals for Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers.

Postecoglou insists the club are not currently in negotiations with potential signings but would move for the right player.

“While the window is open we have done most of our business,” he said. Sky Sports News.

“What we had to do, we did, but we will stay active. There is always the possibility that some guys will move and we are always keen to bring in maybe one or two, but it has to be the good ones.”

Barcelona striker Collado spent last season on loan at Granada but is now back with the first team ahead of La Liga kick off on Saturday.

Reports in Spain claimed Celtic were in talks over the 23-year-old, which Postecoglou denied.

“At the moment we are not in talks or negotiations with any players linked to us anyway. This is not from us. But we will remain active for the next two weeks and see how things go,” did he declare.

Sunday August 14 11:00 a.m.

Kick off 12:00 p.m.

“The players we signed have strengthened our squad, so it’s now a matter of choosing the right ones. If they are available, we will act for them.”

Celtic will be without midfielder Reo Hatate again on Saturday when they face Kilmarnock, live on Sky Sports.

The midfielder missed the 3-1 win at Ross County with a kick and Postecoglou won’t risk it on the artificial surface at Rugby Park.

“It won’t be an easy journey for us,” said the manager who will make a late decision on Stephen Welsh’s fitness.

“Each week has a different type of challenge, but also an opportunity for us to overcome those things.

“The first two weeks of the season have been solid for us in terms of performances and two good results. We just have to keep the momentum going.”
