Brendan Rodgers outlines Celtic summer transfer plans
By Danny Wright
Brendan Rodgers has asserted that there won’t be an upheaval of his Celtic squad in the summer.
The Northern Irish boss believes that he is still trying to drill his philosophy into his squad and that the addition of too many new faces will make it harder for him do that.
Celtic are currently 27 points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership and look to be well on their way to winning their sixth consecutive title, but the 44-year-old is still keen on seeing his side improve.
“There won’t be a raft of signings — no chance,” Rodgers was quoted as saying by the Scottish Sun. “I need to stabilise the group, let them understand what the idea is.
“You can see it working well. The calmness of the players in the game in midweek — and the quality of the match — showed how easy it was at times.

“Well there is a hell of a lot of work going into instilling that calmness and that control, and of course that confidence.”
Rodgers has already received a lot of praise for the players he’s brought to the Glasgow club in his first season in charge.
Moussa Dembele, Scott Sinclair, Cristian Gamboa and Kolo Toure are some of the names Rodgers has brought to the club since he was made manager in May 2016.
Dembele has rapidly become one of Britain’s most sought-after strikers after firing 31 goals in 43 matches in all competitions during his debut season on the green and white half of Glasgow.
Sinclair is another player to have vastly improved this season and is regarded as a player of the year contender.
The former Aston Villa outcast has become a vital part of the Bhoys squad and has scored 17 goals and bagged nine assists across all competitions.
