Aaron Mooy (31) and Moritz Jenz (23) we’re added to the squad yesterday, one an experienced central midfielder Ange Postecoglou has known for years, the other an unknown to us but whom Celtic have watched for over a year.
There are times to worry about free and low cost signings and times to be reassured. The time to worry is when they take place on 31 August: we’ve missed our top targets and have settled well down the list.
Only targets high on the list arrive as early as 19 July.
The wind is at Michael Nicholson’s back right now. It won’t always be this ‘easy’ to land targets, but we’re entitled to look forward to the season.
