Celtic assistant manager Chris Davies has sounded a cautious note as the Hoops look to bring in more signings before the end of the January transfer.
The Bhoys have already signed Marvin Compper – who will miss the next month with a calf injury – and Lewis Morgan – who won’t join up at Celtic Park until next season – but Davies wouldn’t give any guarantees that more signings would be made.
The Hoops assistant did understand that fans are starting to get frustrated with slow process of bringing in new signings, but he assured supporters that the club are working as hard as they can.
“I understand the fans are eager to here some news because ultimately they want the very best for the club and that’s how we feel,” he said, as quoted by Celtic’s official Twitter account.
“We share that same vision. Hopefully we can add to the squad between now and the end of the window.”

The Bhoys have been linked with Dundee’s Jack Hendry, and are on the look-out for a creative midfielder as the search for additions to the squad continues.
The Hoops returned to action after the winter break with a comfortable 5-0 victory over Brechin in the Scottish Cup, which sets up a match against Partick Thistle in the next round.
Ironically the Celts’ first league match of the year is also against Partick Thistle, as the Hoops aim to maintain their eight point lead at the top of the table when they visit Firhill on Tuesday night.
