Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that he is not planning a major revamp

New manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that he is not planning a major revamp of the squad in the summer transfer window, but he insisted that Celtic are in need of a few additions in certain areas of the pitch.

The Scottish club recently replaced Ronny Deila with the former Liverpool manager. Due to his extensive contacts in the Premier league over the last few years, the presence of Rodgers was expected to help Celtic attract many Premier League names. After having been at the club for almost a month, the club has not had any significant transfer activity.

Rodgers will not only be set the target of winning the league title – while in competition with Rangers after a long time – but also doing well in Europe. Ronny Deila managed to win a whole host of domestic trophies in the last couple of years, but Celtic were extremely disappointing when it came to the biggest prize of them all – Europe. Furthermore, Deila managed to win several league titles at a time when there was no significant competition due to the absence of Rangers from the Scottish Premier League. Rodgers may not have any new signings at the moment, but he is expected to go with an attacking philosophy for the Champions League qualifying matches against eitherLincoln Red Imps or Flora Tallinn.

"Of course there is a lot of work needing to go on within the squad but at this moment the players that are back in are working on their football fitness.That's key at this period of the season. And over the course of the next few weeks, we will evaluate it that bit more and look to impose our ideas more into the group. We are working on trying to maybe bring one or two in. The idea we want is quality, that's what we are looking for,” said Rodgers.
