On February 1st, Ange Postecoglou will be fully focused on the match against Livingston, who will be visiting Celtic Park.
On the day of the transfer deadline, there will be a lot of activity in the media with reporters searching for news, agents working hard, and players uncertain about their future employment.
Postecoglou is an early planner, he had already secured three new signings before the start of the year, and recently added Josip Juranovic and Moritz Jenz to the team, who both have experience playing in the Champions League.
The Celtic coach has a clear idea of what he wants to do in the future, but he is also open to new opportunities that may arise unexpectedly on Deadline Day.
James McCarthy, Yosuke Ideguchi, and Oliver Abildgaard are the players that are most likely to be transferred, as they have less chances of playing in the team with six other midfielders ahead of them.
Postecoglou will hold another press conference on Tuesday and it is expected that the upcoming match against Livingston will be the main topic of discussion rather than transfer rumors.
The Daily Record reports the Celtic boss saying:
But the key thing is we are not going to be scrambling in the last few days looking for solutions. I’m sure there will be some movement. More likely out than in at this stage, but there’s still days to go.
