Celtic - Brendan Rodgers Press Conference

Brendan Rodgers has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 13th July, that he is planning new additions at Celtic.

Rodgers has been quiet in the transfer window so far, with Fulham striker Moussa Dembele being the only player he has brought to Parkhead.

However, Rodgers insists that he is planning to make changes - and he expects to see some movement within the next few weeks.

“I think they’ll be one or two more changes,” Rodgers said, when asked about his transfer plans.

“It’s still early, so we’re still assessing the squad. But I’ve always felt we needed a few more in and that will be key. Let’s see if we can do something over the coming weeks.”

Celtic’s board promised Rodgers an increase in funds when he took the job at Parkhead.

So far it has been slow progress for the Glasgow club, though, with many of their bids proving unsuccessful.

Celtic have held an interest in signing Aston Villa’s Scott Sinclair, but reportedly had their first two offers turned down (Daily Record).

A number of Celtic players’ futures are also up in the air, especially after the Bhoys were embarrassed in Champions League qualification last night.

Celtic lost 1-0 to Lincoln Red Imps, and the performance highlighted just how much work Rodgers has to do at Parkhead.
