has admitted that the future of and Odsonne is out of his hands.

The duo have a year left on their contracts with the nightmare scenario being that they walk away for nothing at the end of this season.

Ideally both players could help through their qualifiers then get the moves that they are after with Celtic already having replacements bought in for both players.

Postecoglou has yet to sign anyone other than Osaze Urhoghide but is now living day-to-day with the fluctuations of the transfer market.

The Daily Record reports:

Asked about Ajer’s and ’s futures, Postecoglou said: “I can’t force people to stay. From my perspective, while they’re here, I’m treating them as part of the family.

“As long as they’re working hard in training, I don’t treat them any differently to anyone else. If things change with that, we’ll deal with it as we go along.

“I have had a brief chat with all the players. I don’t think it needs too much discussion. Actions speak louder than words.”

Getting market value for both players would give Postecoglou the funds to reshape the squad but it is looking increasingly unlikely that there will be an influx of new players available for the ties against Midtjylland on July 20 and 28.
