Brendan Rodgers answers the Spurs transfer question

Brendan Rodgers has no concerns about Ange Postecoglou taking Reo Hatate and/or Kyogo Furuhashi to Spurs.

Those two signings were pivotal to the success that the Australian delivered to Celtic with Kyogo scoring five goals in three cup final appearances.

Since Postecoglou moved to Spurs there has been suggestions that he could return to Celtic for signings, with Harry Kane moving to Bayern Munich that speculation has returned.

Pat Nevin was first out of the traps with a predictable story, on Sunday Robbie Savage jumped on board as he tried to wind up Chris Sutton by asking of Kyogo could cut it in the EPL.

Anyone that watches the Celtic duo knows that they are a cut above players that are routinely traded around the EPL for £20-30m.

With their awareness and movement they could play in any company with the added bonus of switching continent and settling in almost instantly to the unforgiving world of Scottish football.

The issue was raised at yesterday’s post match media conference at Aberdeen with The Scotsman reporting:

The Celtic manager was also quizzed on the prospect of Tottenham Hotspur boss Ange Postecogolou raiding his former club to replace Harry Kane, who left for Bayern Munich on Saturday. Asked if he was worried at the prospect, Rodgers responded: “No, not at all – but it’s a good question though.”

Kane finally completed his £100m move to Bayern Munich in the early hours of Saturday morning, on the eve of Spurs opening their EPL campaign at Brentford.

It was a victory for Daniel Levy as he extracted an additional £20m out of the German champions at the expense of Postecoglou getting the chance to work with a new striker during pre-season friendly matches.

Having sold the club’s all-time top scorer the pressure is on Levy to recruit a striker of similar profile although his manager may have different ideas about what his team needs to get into the top four, or maybe five to claim a Champions League spot.

While Levy is seen to be calling the shots Postecoglou will have the sympathy and backing of the Spurs support as they watch a manager trying to bring success with style to their club while operating under the tight remit of his CEO.
