Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has said that he wants the Glasgow giants to do more business in this January transfer market. The Hoops have already secured the signature of two forwards in the form of Timothy Weah and Vakoun Issouf Bayo. The reigning Scottish champions have faced tough competition from arch rivals Rangers this season so far in order to hold onto their title and need to strengthen their attack, which has failed to perform as per expectations.
Speaking to the media, the former Liverpool manager said, “We will look to do more business. I think January, in particularly up here in Scotland, is important. But the players have to be available at the same time. When you’re working down south it’s maybe not as important because sometimes those players aren’t available and in January.”
He added, “You are trying to not just improve your squad for now but whatever qualification games you have in the summer, and they come very quickly on to you so you have to get the squad ready for that. The market is very difficult for Scotland because the players are always moving. You look at the changes in our squad that happened particularly over the summer, it’s a new squad, lots of new players.”
