Brendan Rodgers delighted by Celtic's transfer business
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is content with his side's transfer business for the summer.
The Hoops made five signings during the recently concluded transfer window, and Rodgers is delighted to have added more quality to his squad. The Scottish treble-winners pursued the services of French striker Odsonne Edouard from Paris Saint-Germain on transfer deadline day, and he became the Hoops' fifth and final acquisition of the summer transfer window.
Apart from Edouard, the club recruited the likes of Jonny Hayes, KundaiBenyu, Olivier Ntcham and Patrick Roberts to their ranks, and Rodgers believes that his side are in a stronger position going forward for the remainder of the season.
"We have enjoyed a really successful summer window and I am delighted with our activity in the market, bringing in five players who I believe are adding real quality to our squad. It has been said so many times before, but the objective, if possible, is always to come out of the window stronger than we went in and I am very happy as we have definitely done that." he told the club's official website.
Celtic have won the last six Scottish Premiership titles, and they look on course for a seventh successive triumph unless the likes of Aberdeen and Rangers have a surprise in store. The Champions League qualification phase has been a positive for Rodgers' side this season, and the ex-Liverpool boss is now determined to show progress in the group stages where they were truly humbled last time around.
The Hoops have been drawn alongside European heavyweights Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain in the elite competition this term, and Rodgers' knows that his side will have to play at the best of their abilities in order to secure the third spot with Belgian champions Anderlecht no walkovers either.
