BRENDAN RODGERS wants to sign two “quality” players to boost treble-chasing Celtic next season.
The Hoops boss said: “We don’t need many, but if we can bring in a couple of players of quality, we want to make a mark on Europe.
“That would be progress for us and just keep the momentum going with the club.”
Rodgers has persuaded players such as Craig Gordon, James Forrest, Kieran Tierney and Tom Rogic to commit their futures to the champions – and the Irishman is hopeful Stuart Armstrong will also extend his stay.
He said: “Stuart is the one we’re with at the moment, so we’re hoping he’ll sign another deal.
“That leaves a real good core of the team together.”
And Rodgers hasn’t given up hope of convincing Paddy Roberts that his immediate future in the game would be better in the Celtic first team rather than on the Manchester City bench, or worse still in their Development Squad.
Celtic are only one game away from the silverware clean sweep in Rodgers’ first campaign at his boyhood idols.
With the sixth successive Premiership title and the League Cup already won, all eyes are now on the Scottish Cup Final against Aberdeen at Hampden on May 27.
Rodgers will become only the third Celtic manager to achieve the feat, following Jock Stein, who did it twice, and Martin O’Neill.
