Journalist shares what Brendan Rodgers absolutely desires Celtic to do in the transfer market

With Celtic now trailing in the title race for the first time in 18 months, the full focus of how it all has long past wrong has been positioned firmly on the club’s transfer policy.

Losing top first-team gamers like Jota and Carl Starfelt, and even Aaron Mooy to retirement, was once a essential blow for Brendan Rodgers.

But where Celtic have failed is how they have recruited to substitute three stars who were pivotal in the treble-winning season.

Luis Palma was brought in to change the Portuguese, Odin Thiago Holm and Hyeokkyu Kwon were added for Mooy and Gustaf Lagerbielke and Maik Nowrocki were bought to the tune of nearly £8m to take the location of Carl Starfelt.

All gamers with a blended switch whole of round £11m. Out of that list only one, Palma, has contributed some thing of note, all the relaxation can be viewed as disasters due to the lack of gametime beneath Rodgers.

However, for all the money laid out in the summer, Rodgers has had plenty of money to spend. But in accordance to Keith Jackson, it’s no longer getting spent the way the Celtic manager wants.

Jackson stated [Record Celtic podcast], “If you askBrendan Rodgers himself he would say the equal thing. He would a ways rather, as an alternative of spending £20m on seven players, spend £15m on three of four.

“That’s the argument that he would make if he was once sitting on this podcast right now. He would definitely agree with that and I comprehend that to be the case.”

Celtic fans’ frustrations in the transfer market

This has been a massive bugbear for the Celtic followers over latest years. Apart from the Ange Postecoglou era, there has been millions of pounds wasted on gamers who are surely now not accurate sufficient to put on the green and white hoops.

We can all hark again to players like Ismaila Soro, Kundai Benyu and Boli Bolingoli. Even Ange Postecoglou had a couple of nightmares withJames McCarthy, Yosuke Ideguchi and Sead Haksabanovic.

And at the same time as spending huge doesn’t always guarantee that a participant will be a success (remember Albian Ajeti?) it does give you a better risk of adding extra great and enhancing the first team.

Instead of spending that £11m in the summer season on 5 players, would it not have made greater feel to spend it on two? Even in phrases of earnings paying two appropriate players a decent wage as an alternative of 5 would make a lot greater sense.

However, we are where we are and it appears like unless there is a massive shake-up in the recruitment department soon, the summer time switch window is destined to be another Groundhog Day for the Celtic supporters.
