Two deals the club are working on, Football Insider has been told today by a Hoops source, is the capture of Sunderland striker Charlie Wyke and the signing of Brighton goalkeeper Mathew Ryan.
Asked about the potential captures, McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild:
“I don’t think there’s a team there at the moment,”
“I’ve never seen it so quiet, which isn’t a bad thing. Celtic are capable of going about their business quietly
“Then bang, bang, bang there’s players coming in. Get it done. Deals have to be done now.
“The fans have to know. The lot of them have been amazing, look at the season tickets that have been sold.
“They need to see something. They need to see what they are getting for their money.
“Whatever happens, something has to happen soon.”
