It’s been a week to forget for Celtic as Ange Postecoglou still searches for his first win after three competitive fixtures.
Hearts inflicted a 2-1 defeat on Saturday night following an identical scoreline against FC Midtjylland during the week, and this team must learn quickly to capitalise on the notable possession they’ve held in each of their fixtures so far.
We’re now in August yet only three senior additions have been made to the squad in the shape of Liel Abada, Carl Starfelt & Kyogo Furohashi, with the latter two featuring against Hearts having barely met their new team-mates.
All should go on to have an impact at the club, but they can’t do it alone and they’ll be hoping to be joined by several new colleagues in the Lennoxtown cafeteria ASAFP if we’re to give ourselves a fighting chance of any success this year.
Frustratingly Starfelt and Furohashi only appeared following our Champions League exit and the time for action is now in terms of the board supplying Ange with the additional signings he clearly needs. The last few days of August could already be too late as far as our aspirations for the season are concerned!
Next up, a Europa League qualifier away to Jablonec of the Czech Republic on Thursday followed by the visit of newly promoted Dundee at Celtic Park on Sunday where 24,000 fans will be hoping for a quick turnaround in our early season fortunes.
