In the season’s penultimate match, Celtic is getting ready to play their closest competitors in the SFA Cup final at

Hampden Park on Saturday.

The Hoops, who won the Scottish Premiership last weekend, may wrap up the 2023–24 season with a second trophy,

completing a domestic double.

The previous week, Brendan Rodgers and his team defeated Kilmarnock 5-0 away from home to win the trophy. On

the last day of the league season, they defeated St Mirren 3-2 at Parkhead.

The Northern Irish coach will now be hoping for another impressive performance from his team at Hampden Park

when they take on Rangers in the final this weekend.

After that big clash, the focus will then turn to the summer transfer window and there is no hiding from the club’s

need to sign a new first-choice goalkeeper.

The Scottish powerhouses will require a number one goalie before the 2024–25 season since Joe Hart is scheduled to

retire at the age of 37 when his contract expires this summer.

Celtic working to sign Austrian star

According to Football Insider, the Hoops are working on a deal to bring Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Patrick Pentz

to Parkhead this summer.

The report claims that the Austrian shot-stopper has just one year left on his deal with the German side, who have

just completed an unbeaten season in the Bundesliga, and that could provide

the Bhoys with a chance to swoop in for his services.

It states that the 27-year-old star has emerged as a ‘strong’ option for the Scottish giants to bring in to bolster their

goalkeeping options ahead of next term.

According to Football Insider, Rodgers’ main ambition for the upcoming summer transfer window is to find a new

goalkeeper to replace Hart. Pentz is reportedly one of the top targets for that role.

The gifted giant, who recently finished the season on loan with Brondby in Denmark, is reportedly the target of

Southampton and PSV, so it might not be an easy transaction to close.

Should they still be interested in signing Pentz, the Saints’ position in negotiations may be strengthened by the

possibility of promotion to the Premier League, which they face battle against

Southampton in the Championship play-off final on Sunday.

But if Celtic prevails in the competition for his services, the team may end up with

a goalkeeper who is ideal for Rodgers’ style of play going ahead.

Why Patrick Pentz is perfect for Brendan Rodgers

Football Insider’s report claimed that the Leverkusen ace’s ability with the ball at his feet caught the eye of the Hoops

boss, who wants his number one to be able to play out from the back.
