Scott Brown, sbothai8 the Celtic captain, has insisted that he would trust Brendan Rodgers “with his life” as he maintained that he believes the Parkhead side will improve again this term whether there are further new arrivals or not.
Celtic have made goalkeeper Scott Bain and Odsonne Edouard permanent members of the squad after signing them on long-term contracts this summer, with the outlay for Edouard a club record fee believed to be almost £9m.
That has been offset by the sale of Stuart Armstrong to Southampton for £7m while defender Erik Sviatchenko headed back to FC Midtyjlland for £1m.

"I put a lot of trust in the manager and he's produced a lot to be fair,” said Brown. “I trust him with my life. The way he's doing things at Celtic he's improving us in every single department. so yes I have a lot of trust in him.
Celtic have had three bids for Hibernian and Scotland midfielder John McGinn knocked back by the Easter Road side this summer and there has been some frustration on the part of supporters at the lack of further new additions to the squad.
There has been a hint of discord over the lack of signings with Rodgers clipped at times sbothai8 when asked about the ongoing nature of his enquiries for players.
Celtic will head to Trondheim this afternoon in preparation for the second leg of the UEFA second round Champions League qualifier against Rosenborg with a threadbare defence following injury and suspension issues.
It seems to have become something of a perennial issue for the club to be exposed at this point in this season, as they look to negotiate a difficult qualification process to the group stages of Europe's premier competition.
Dedryck Boyata and Mikael Lustig were given additional time off after their involvement at the FIFA World Cup while Jozo Simunovic is suspended and Marvin Compper has an adductor injury.
Brown, though, was vocal in his belief that whatever squad is there when the transfer window closes at the end of August is one which Rodgers can continue to get the best out of. sbothai8
