Although the Euros do not start until Friday, players from Gibraltar to Germany are in action tonight as hundreds of the Continent’s best players continue their preparation for the tournament. Many will be available for sale, just look at the Celtic players that have featured in international friendlies in recent days.
Even if he was already in place, Ange Postecoglou would be unable to travel to games in person but the most important job right now is to scout potential targets across dozens of games. This process requires the manager to work in tandem with his scouts and technical team. I doubt any of Celtic’s scouts of technicians have had as much as a Teams call with the new boss.
Despite the time difference and being thousands of miles away, Ange can watch as many games as he could from Glasgow, but scouting is not a solitary operation. The critical link between him and the rest of the team needs to be established as soon as possible.
