Anthony Joseph clears up online rumours regarding Celtic’s recruitment policy

Celtic’s pursuit of two players from South Korea seems to have raised questions amongst the supporters on whether or not these latest signings are Brendan Rodgers‘ or the last drips of scouting knowledge from Ange Postecoglou’s reign.

And Sky Sports’ Anthony Joseph has taken to Twitter to clear up the rumours online that the current Celtic additions are Ange Postecoglou’s signings.

Joseph tweeted, “Seeing a lot of comments regarding Celtic’s global recruitment search.

“These aren’t “Ange signings”. Ange’s influence definitely guided Celtic towards these untapped markets.

“Celtic scouts/recruitment know them well now. They’re continuing to identify targets in these areas.”

In reality, Celtic’s scouting network has been first class for the past two seasons. There’s no doubt that we have, and still are, taking advantage of what we have learned from the Asian market from the former Celtic gaffer.

It has proven very successful and long may that continue. But if anyone thinks that just because Ange has left our interest in the Asian and Australian markets went with him are seriously mistaken.

I would expect to see us continue our scouting in the Asian region for many years yet. Celtic are a global club. We have a global fanbase. It is only right that we also have a global scouting network.
