Ange Postecoglou confirms Celtic transfer exit plans

Coming into the campaign, most people expected this to be a transitional season for Celtic. After all, they had finished 25 points behind the Rangers in the Premiership last season and had not managed to win a single trophy. And in the beginning, it did look like that was going to be the case, as the Hoops appeared to be struggling to adjust to Ange Postecoglou’s style of football.

Football is a funny game though. A few months on and they look very much ready to challenge for the Premiership title this season itself.

Squad depth is arguably Celtic’s biggest problem right now and they will know that injuries to a couple of key players could derail their season. January provides them a great opportunity to take care of this problem though and strengthen their squad, so that they are ready to make a title challenge.

But it looks like there will be players heading out of Parkhead as well in the near future. As reported by The Herald, when asked how many players he expects to leave, the manager said:

“That depends, some guys will be going on loan and some will be moving out, that’s only natural as everything progresses.

“Some of that will depend on the players themselves and where they feel they are at.

“Circumstances change and I expect some players will be moving on.”

Postecoglou confirms Celtic’s transfer exit plans

It is safe to say that Celtic have been linked with quite a few players as potential January signings. Names like Daizen Maeda, Reo Hatate, Fernando Henrique and many others have cropped up on and off in recent times.

But quite a few have been linked with Parkhead exits as well. Rumours have suggested that Albian Ajeti and Vasilis Barkas, both big signings from the summer of 2020, could be headed out the Parkhead exit door in January.

On the other hand, players like Liam Scales, Liam Shaw, Osaze Urhoghide and a few others could do with more regular playing time and as a result, loan moves could be good options for them. Let’s see how things turn out.
