Brendan Rodgers takes charge of his first competitive games as Celtic manager this evening as his team take on Lincoln Red Imps in the Champions League second qualifying round.
As manager Rodgers has already made a move in the transfer market which received approving nods - and not just from Celtic fans. A fortnight ago, Celtic announced the signing of out of contract Fulham striker Moussa Dembele. The 19-year-old was spoken of by Zinedine Zidane as being 'an exciting player potentially for France' - high praise for the player and certainly encouraging for Celtic fans.
Celtic have also been linked with a move for one of Wales' key players at Euro 2016. Chris Gunter - currently with Reading in the Championship - has a release clause of £1 million and Rodgers is interested in improving Celtic at the right-back position.
Last month, the club were supposedly expressed interest in a former player of Rodgers at Swansea - Scott Sinclair. The winger is currently with Aston Villa.
According to the Telegraph, new Aston Villa manager Roberto Di Matteo wants to trim his squad and Sinclair is one of those who could leave Villa Park as the Italian readies for a push back into the Premier League.
Celtic have already had two bids for Sinclair turned down but are now prepared for a third offer and improved offer of £3 million.
Sinclair is a player Rodgers knows well. They spent two years together at Swansea. Rodgers left for Liverpool in June 2012 with Sinclair departing for Man City two months later. The move to Man City was not a success. He made a permanent transfer to Aston Villa in last year's January transfer window.
