Ange Postecoglou has been backed to shrewdly spend the silver and source more transfer gold for Celtic.
Former Parkhead skipper Tom Boyd is adamant the Aussie can be trusted implicitly to deliver gems during the transfer window.
Postecoglou is hunting the globe for signings to boost the ranks with the likes of Alexandro Bernabei on his radar and Cameron Carter-Vickers already secured on an initial £6million deal.
The manager will have added funds at his disposal due to guaranteed Champions League cash and Boyd has no doubts he’ll use it smartly to assist the title defence and return crack at the group stage of Europe’s elite competition.
Postecoglou already has a brilliant strike-rate in the market with a host of successful recruits such as Kyogo Furuhashi, Jota and Liel Abada arriving in his reign.
And Boyd believes the boss can work the magic again as he said: “I trust him. That’s what managers are judged on. The players they bring into the club and can they make an impact?
“Unfortunately, a couple of years ago, the players we brought in didn’t have that impact and that is one of the reasons why we didn’t win the league.
“Now you look at what Ange has done and every player that he has brought in has made a massive impact to help us win the league and a cup.
“What he is doing, he is doing right and that is why we trust what he is doing.
“The adjustment of style, the formation which was alien to many of us at the start was working by the end of the season by winning the league and getting us into the Champions League proper.
“That’s the faith we have in the manager and because he has done it. And it has given us that confidence to go into next season hoping he can bring in more better players.”
Celtic are building from a position of strength as champions and Boyd continued: “It’s the best time to try and do it. You are guaranteed that bit of money from the Champions League, so you can go out and do that a little earlier.
“Maybe that helped us get Cameron done and we’re looking for more players.
“The one thing I would say is that so is everyone else, but, hopefully, we can find some gems along the way.
“We want to improve in every transfer window and, up until now, he has been able to create that in terms of the players he has brought in. They have been able to make an impact.
“But where we go and what players come in? We put our faith in the manager.
“They know and have a better outlook than we see. If we see a player who is linked with them, the due diligence has been done well before that by the club.”
Celtic have set their stall out this summer with the huge outlay for Carter-Vickers and Boyd said: “You see is the impact he made last season.
We’re testing a new site:
“Sometimes we miss out on players like that because they have been playing so well.
“It is great credit to everyone at the club, the board and whoever, who sanctioned the move. We’d seen there was a player there and the impact he had on loan which worked as it allowed us to see him as a player.
“He just got stronger and stronger and by the end was competing for the Player of the Year.
“You don’t want to lose someone like that and we’re extremely happy everyone on the board and the management managed to get done to continue the squad depth we have got at the moment.
“I’ve no doubt his experience within the club whether it is playing in front of the fans or being told about the atmosphere, he’s heard it from the best players in the world saying what a magnificent atmosphere the Champions League nights have, but he sees it every week.
“Whether it be home or away, he sees that and, like anyone, you would want more of it and, thankfully, Cameron will be with us for a few years and can experience some more great nights.”
