Celtic want Lennon to replace Rodgers says Nicholas

Celtic want Lennon to replace Rodgers says Nicholas Celtic want to re-hire Neil Lennon when Brendan Rodgers leaves the club, according to former Hoops player Charlie Nicholas. Writing for the Daily Star, as cited on the Scotsman, Nicholas explains that he believes those behind the scenes at Celtic want to bring Lennon back to the club, despite it not being a move that he personally would agree with. “There are some inside Parkhead who see Neil Lennon as a live candidate to replace Brendan Rodgers when the time comes for him to move on.” “I can’t see it happening. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have huge admiration for Lennon as a boss. I love the way he wears his heart on his sleeve and demands the same from his players. Celtic have been warned.” Rodgers was heavily linked with the Aston Villa job recently and also attracted interest from English clubs over the summer. While an exit is not considered imminent, there is a growing feeling at the club that the former Liverpool boss will leave for pastures news at some stage in the not too distant future. Lennon was in charge of Celtic for four years from 2010 and won three Scottish titles and a Scottish Cup during his time at the club. He has since impressed during his time away from the spell, earning plaudits for the job he has done at Hibernian.

Johnston Press, the company behind a string of newspaper titles including the i, The Scotsman and The Yorkshire Post, has put itself up for sale.

The company, which like many rivals has struggled financially amid declining print readerships and ad revenues, took the decision after a strategic review of its business which began last year.

The review took place ahead of a looming deadline for the repayment of £220m in loans.

It said on Thursday that a sale was the only option.

The company's statement read: "Since commencing the strategic review of financing options first announced in March 2017, the company has focused on exploring all options available to it in relation to its £220m outstanding 8.625% senior secured notes due for repayment on 1 June 2019.

Celtic could launch McTominay loan move in January

Celtic could launch McTominay loan move in January Celtic could launch a move to sign Manchester United youngster Scott McTominay on loan in January. According to The Scotsman, the Hoops could be interested in a move should the player become available. After breaking through at Manchester United, McTominay was linked with a loan move to Celtic over the summer, but he opted to remain at Old Trafford and fight for his place. There are now suggestions that the player could be moved out on loan for the second half of the season. The Hoops would certainly be able to offer the Scottish international regular first-team football in a way that Manchester United are simply unable to do. McTominay is very highly rated by Mourinho, so it is yet to be seen if he will be willing to let the player leave on loan. The 21-year-old has been limited to two Premier League starts under Mourinho this season and a further two appearances off the bench.

Mike Ashley has not received an acceptable offer for Newcastle

Mike Ashley has not received an acceptable offer for Newcastle Mike Ashley has not yet received “acceptable offer” for Newcastle United, according to Sky Sports. The Newcastle owner’s lawyer appeared on television last year to announce that Ashley was putting the club up for sale, ending a long-running standoff between himself and the Newcastle United fans upset with his ownership of the club. His original aim was to sell the club by Christmas 2017 but with the season of goodwill looming once again the Sports Direct tycoon is still at the helm. There’s been no shortage of interest in the Tyneside club with the highest profile takeover attempt being that of Amanda Staveley who tried to purchase the side for £250m last year but was unable to agree a deal with the current owner. Furthermore, the Daily Mail recently reported that the US-based consortium led by former Chelsea chief Peter Kenyon, which had previously been reported as an interested party in September, have reignited their interest and are willing to match Ashley’s £300m asking price but are holding out to see if Newcastle are likely to remain a Premier League club for much longer with the team currently sat in 19th without a single victory this season. But Sky are reporting that the latest interested party are a group of Saudi Arabian investors but that the group have yet to establish contact with Ashley’s camp. The Sky report also states that if Ashley does not believe that any prospective new owner does not have the funds to take the club forward then he will not sell. So, for the fans excited by the prospect of an Ashley-less Newcastle, you may still have a while to wait.

The company, which has about 200 titles, had hoped that a decision to buy the i national daily in 2016 would help revive its financial fortunes but it had remained loss-making to the extent it had been considering offloading other major titles, including The Scotsman, to raise cash.

It had blamed falling revenues more recently on changes to Google and Facebook algorithms which had hurt online exposure.

The company had a market value of £1.6bn in 2005 - a figure had since slumped to £3.4m ahead of the sale announcement which triggers a suspension in the dealing of its shares.

The price had surged in August amid rumours of a mystery buyer for Johnston Press stock.

Bidders for the business could include activist shareholder Custos Group, which already owns more than 20% of the business and had said it would be a prospective bidder if the company collapsed.

Besiktas eyeing move for Dedryck Boyata as Vida replacement.
Beskitas are reportedly eyeing up a swoop for Celtic star Dedyrck Boyata in the January transfer window. The Turkish side are reportedly ready to make a move if Croatian star Domagoj Vida leaves the side, with Boyata being lined up as his replacement. Besiktas aren’t the only side interested in Boyata, according to the Scotsman, with Saudi Arabian side Al-Itthad also interested in a swoop for the Belgian. The Belgian is entering the final year of his deal at Celtic, and is looking very likely to leave Parkhead. Boyata was linked with a move away from the club in the Summer, but no move was finalised before the end of the transfer window. However, with teams circling over a potential €10 million swoop for the defender, with Celtic potentially looking to cash in before his deal expires. Other clubs are free to talk to Boyata in January, so Celtic could have a fight on their hands to keep the defender in Glasgow.
