Celtic boss Rodgers keen on making more signings this month

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he is keen to further strengthen his squad before the closure of the January transfer window.

The Bhoys have so far added Lewis Morgan and Marvin Compper to their side this month and could set to win yet another Scottish Premiership title.

However whether their side is good enough to have a deep run in the Europa League and win their last-32 tie against Zenit St Petersburg remains to be seen.

Question marks, meanwhile continue to surround the future of Celtic striker Moussa Dembele who has been linked with a number of clubs in Europe this month, notably Crystal Palace and Brighton from the Premier League.

When asked about whether he needs to bolster his squad, Rodgers said: “For me, we have to. We have to. There’s no question that’s something we need to do. I’m very happy with the group of players that I have. We’ll also have some returning from injury who will make us stronger again.

“But we wanted to bring in players in this window who would add quality. Sometimes that takes a wee bit of time. You’re not just relying on going and paying the money. You need to rely on the timing from the other team so we’re hopeful we can bring in that quality.

“I could have signed 20 players up until now, or more. I could have changed my whole squad if I wanted to. But I needed to make sure it was the right quality, not just domestically but for any European football we might have further down the line.”
