Ange Postecoglou claimed that Celtic are very close to completing a couple of transfer deals but the only timeline he referred to was the deadline on August 31.

It is two weeks since Celtic announced the signings of Joe Hart and James McCarthy but with two weeks remaining some fans are getting anxious about the slow rate of progress.

At the end of last season Celtic lost Diego Laxalt, Jonjoe Kenny and Shane Duffy making defensive signings a priority.

So far Carl Starfelt has replaced Kris Ajer with Postecoglou selecting Nir Bitton for the home tie against Midtjylland with Dane Murray making his first competitive start in the return leg in Denmark.

Postecoglou has steered Celtic to four successive wins giving fans a taster of how he wants his side to play but he knows that ready made first team players need to be added to his roster.

I’m very confident we will have players in before the transfer deadline. It’s just a matter of timing and getting things done. It’s not as straightforward as it used to be.

We are very close to a few deals, I think. We just need to keep doing what we are doing, stay focused and disciplined, and make sure we get the right players in.

Once we do, it will help us enormously because we are putting a big workload on a core group of players at the moment.

Celtic have been strongly linked with an interest in Legia Warsaw defender bring Josip Juranovic.
