Celtic could 'pull the trigger' on more deals this month after 'brilliant' confirmed news - pundit

Alan Hutton has claimed Celtic may not have concluded their business in this month’s transfer window.

The former Scotland defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, hailed Hoops boss Ange Postecoglou for his “brilliant” business thus far.

Celtic have added no fewer than five new faces this month, with striker Johnny Kenny and midfielder Matt O’Riley joining Japanese trio Reo Hatate, Yosuke Ideguchi and Daizen Maeda at Parkhead.

Maeda endeared himself instantly to the Celtic faithful on Monday (17 January), grabbing a fourth-minute debut goal as the Hoops defeated Hibernian 2-0.

Hutton hailed Postecoglou for the swift manner in which he has conducted business during the winter window.

“He’s outlined his targets, got them in early – and he’s been proved right with their performances,” he told Football Insider‘s Russell Edge.

“He’s done a brilliant job. The ideal situation is to get them in early doors so you can mould and work with the players.

“Whether they’re done in the transfer window, I’m not so sure.

“Much like Rangers, I’m sure if there’s a deal to be had and somebody pops up to improve the squad – I’m sure they’ll pull the trigger.

“He’s outlined the main areas in his squad that he wanted to improve and Postecoglou has delivered right away, so fair play.”

Celtic trail Scottish Premiership champions Rangers by four points as the two sides prepare to face off on 2 January.

The Hoops kick off their Europa Conference League knockout campaign against Bodo/Glimt next month.
