ANGE POSTECOGLOU has insisted any players linked with Celtic are "lies and fabrications" as he slammed January transfer rumours and speculation.

Celtic manager Postecoglou has already sealed deals for Daizen Maeda, Reo Hatate, Yosuke Ideguchi and Johnny Kenny this month.

He was also thought to be close to signing Riley McGree from Charlotte FC before the midfielder "decided to look elsewhere".

And today Postecoglou revealed Celtic are not in discussions with any other players as he blasted speculation on further transfer dealings this month.

Insisting he's happy with his squad, the Greek-Australian boss stated in no uncertain terms that no other transfer discussions are currently taking place.

He told the media: "Unless something extraordinary comes along or something happens within the existing squad that means we need to move.

"But as we speak right now there are no other offers or people I've spoken to so the 20 names that come out tomorrow are all lies or fabrications or people bored at home just Googling names and throwing them up there or agents trying to get a little bit more value for their clients.

"So I can't be any clearer than that. The one thing I won't do is lie.

"So there is nobody else we are talking to, there are no other offers, there's nobody else I'm interested in as we sit here today. 

"If that changes I will let you know."
