Former Celtic player John Hartson is expecting plenty of activity in the upcoming transfer window at Parkhead as the champions-elect ready a squad fit to defend the title.

The Bhoys have a six-point lead and a 20-goal advantage with just two games of the Scottish Premiership season to go a result at Dundee United tonight would ignite the celebrations. 

Manager Ange Postecoglou has enjoyed a fantastic maiden campaign in Glasgow and has been a shrewd operator in the transfer market thus far acquiring hidden gems from the J.League in Japan where he once led Yokohama F. Marinos to the title. 

Both Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers were brought in on loans from Benfica and Tottenham Hotspur respectively and have been instrumental in the club’s quest to reclaiming their place at the top of the table.

Do you think Jota will be at Celtic next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Now Hartson is expecting, Ange to continue on what he called an “extensive rebuild” at the start of the season and add players that can improve the team.

Speaking on the Go Radio Football Show he said:

(53:05)”There’ll be a lot of movement, both in and out. But what Ange doesn’t want to do, he just doesn’t want to bring in numbers. He’s got a lot of numbers. He wants quality. He wants players that are better than the ones he’s already got. Because he’s got a big squad now.”

TIF Thoughts on Celtic…

The Daily Record outlined last week how the Hoops could land £40m for reaching the Champions League group stages through winning the league this year and it looks as if, Postecoglou will have money to splash in order to bolster his squad.

Interesting first question, how many Celtic fans were inside Ibrox?

The Greek-Australian technician made Kyogo Furuhashi one of his first signings at Parkhead, which has proved a trick with the forward top-scoring on 18 goals in his maiden season and that should prompt Lennoxtown officials into letting the boss have a say when it comes to who he wants to bring in. 

He has already demonstrated a savvy knowledge of the Japanese market by bringing in Daizen Maeda who he managed in Yokohama as well as signing Reo Hatate in January and should be handed the responsibility of identifying targets as from around the globe as it is clear he has an understanding of what he needs to improve the fortunes of the club.
