Dundee United v Celtic - Scottish Premiership Cinch

This summer is now all about Celtic and good times are on the way for supporters

With international football officially phased out, this summer is now all about Celtic, as my good friend Stevie from TJDS said yesterday.

The UEFA Nations League has received its fair share of criticism, but I’ve actually enjoyed many of the recent games. It didn’t hurt that Celtic international Bhoys largely represented their country well.

Josip Juranovic, Liel Abada and Giorgos Giakoumakis all enjoyed success across Europe, while Kyogo Furuhashi and Daizen Maeda gained experience against a very good Brazilian side.

The less said about Scotland the better and there was disappointment over Carl Starfelt’s injury, but overall it was a productive time for many in the squad.

They will now enjoy a few more weeks off before joining the squad ahead of a pre-season trip to Austria in early July, with the non-international squad due in Lennoxtown the week of June 27.

Without focusing on Scotland and looking again to the start of the upcoming season, there is plenty of excitement for Celtic supporters on the horizon. The Bhoys set the agenda. Everything seems under control.

Firstly, we’ll get the first big update of the upcoming campaign tomorrow when the SPFL announce the Premiership fixtures.

Not only do we have an overview of all the derby dates, but also the matches surrounding the UEFA Champions League campaign ahead of the World Cup, as well as the first six matches. All of this sets the stage for what is to follow.

Beyond match announcements, Postecoglou will surely make more additions to his squad after the confirmed deal for Cameron Carter-Vickers.

Jota’s move is said to be still in the works and on track while reports today suggest that Ben Siegrist is on the way.

The left-back and midfield links continue, with another defender also on the cards despite the Carter-Vickers acquisition.

We could have as many as five or six additions beyond the United States international, with each announcement sure to bring new excitement to fans.

Not only that, but behind-the-scenes additions are on the way, with the club announcing two positions in the analytics and sports science departments. The more publicized arrival of Harry Kewell will make waves if it also materializes.

Before we know it, the pre-season will be upon us with the squad training, the club offering all kinds of quality content and six friendlies which will be played from July 6.

We are now closer to Celtic’s new phase of Postecoglou than the glory of the trophy last month. It’s been a long wait, but good times are back.
