    Yeah watching his presser now it seems we are defo not bringing anyone else in. Happy enough with the window myself, hopefully a couple more out for good and a couple more young guys out on loan.

    He spoke about the possibility of somebody coming in if players go out, so I wouldn't be surprised to see another signing if we can shift a couple. We were reportedly willing to spend millions on Riley Mcgree as well, which shows that if the right player becomes available, the funds are there.

    With the opening six months of Ange Postecoglou’s debut season delivering the first available silverware of the season in the shape of the League Cup and continued European football after the turn of the year, the manager hasn’t taken any time out to bask in the glory.

    He isn’t set to rest on his laurels just yet, and any time taken out to reflect has only made him even more determined to add to the progress made since he arrived in the summer.

    The team aren’t yet where he wants them to be, but he intent on getting them there and he has been delighted with the backing of the Celtic support right from the start.

    He said: “As I said from day one, I’ve been overwhelmed and humbled with the support I’ve received right from the first day to be fair.

    “Even when things weren’t going smoothly at the beginning, I still felt our supporters saw what we were trying to do and they backed us all the way.

    ‘It’s been a big part of my first six months that the supporters really got behind the team, which is the most important thing for me.’

    “I think the first six months, if nothing else, has shown progress for us. Are we where we want to be? No! As I certainly want us to be stronger than we are at the moment, but from where we started and where we ended up, there was progress.”




    The second half of the season is now imminent, with the visit of Hibernian at Celtic Park on Monday night, and that is when stage two of the progress report begins anew with the first game the next step in the manager’s plan for continued improvement.

    He added: “I want more and I want us to be better, I want us to be stronger. And, to be fair, that would be my answer even if we were flying and everything had gone well.

    ‘The idea is we continually seek improvement in the way we play and in the way we develop our players, in our results – everything.’

    “So, I think it’s certainly been an entertaining six months for everyone. There have been plenty of storylines and hopefully moving forward we continue our progress,

    “And, as I said, the most important thing is that we vindicate the support that I’ve had and the team have had in the first six months.”

    It’s not only the fans that have been backing the manager’s vision for the team, but, behind the scenes, the club under new Chief Executive, Michael Nicholson, have also been playing a high-press game.

    The manager said: “I’m on record as saying I’m working really well with Michael, not just Michael, but other people on the board and within senior management, again they’ve been very supportive of me and my vision.

    “Ultimately, I’m the one taking responsibility for what’s happening in the football department and for me to have the best chance of success, I couldn’t do it without that support and Michael has been integral in that.

    ‘Even before he became CEO we were working well together, so that’s been tremendous assistance to me and the football department.’

    “And we continue to work, he’s probably in a similar boat to me in that he’s seen progress, but I’m sure that he wants to improve and he wants us to get better as a football club.

    “And he’ll be working hard to do that. So far everything’s gone really well and hopefully it will continue to do so.”

    Not too fussed if that's our transfer window done. But we should get more staff- doctors and physios for example.

    People aren't reading his comments.

    Aye I think people have misread his comments, he says there's nothing in the works now, which is fair. This could very easily change before the end of the window.

    I fully expect us to sign another midfielder, hopefully another Winger too.
