Neil Lennon in Odsonne Edouard Celtic transfer update as he plans for 'outrageous' scenario

  Neil Lennon in Odsonne Edouard Celtic transfer update as he plans for 'outrageous' scenario The Parkhead boss is hopeful his star man will will not leave in the summer window. The French frontman was an unused sub in the 3-2 victory that put Lennon ’s men back to the top of the Premiership table.

An audibly dismayed Lennon pulled no punches after the final whistle blew on a devastating 2-1 He called the attitude and mentality of his players into question before also sensationally revealing he He let rip during a petulant interview in France before Lennon read him the riot act upon his return.

Neil Lennon promised to cull the uncommitted after Celtic were knocked out of the Champions Lennon also explained that strikers Albian Ajeti and Patryk Klimala who started on the bench were The early goal helped us. I was really surprised they didn’t play with a recognised striker because

"We are spinning a few plates on a couple of players."

Neil Lennon has made no secret over his desire to land another left-back but his latest signing admission on Sunday will have Celtic supporters on tenterhooks.

Potential candidates to provide Greg Taylor competition are Charlton's highly-rated wing-back Alfie Doughty and Danish international Casper Holjer.

Lennon also revealed he talks to head of recruitment Nick Hammond on a daily basis but what other positions could be on their signing wishlist?

Sir Paul McCartney looks back 'like a fan' on first time he met John Lennon

  Sir Paul McCartney looks back 'like a fan' on first time he met John Lennon Sir Paul McCartney has opened up about the first time he met Beatles bandmate John Lennon, admitting he looks back “like a fan”. The 78-year-old singer spoke to Lennon’s son Sean Ono Lennon, 44, and widow Yoko Ono, 87,for a new BBC Radio 2 documentary commemorating John Lennon At 80. McCartney recounts the day on July 6 1957 when he was introduced to Lennon, then aged 16, in Liverpool. He said: “I look back on it now like a fan, how lucky was I to meet this strange teddy boy off the bus, who played music like I did and we get together and boy, we complemented each other!” © Provided by Yahoo!

Celtic remain one point behind Scottish Premiership leaders Rangers with a game still in hand after extending their unbeaten home run over Hibernian. Celtic 's Jeremie Frimpong was again a major threat for Neil Lennon ' s men, tormenting Hibs constantly down the right hand side. What did we learn?

CELTIC boss Neil Lennon is reportedly keen to keep strengthening his squad and is believed to be targeting an attacking midfielder and a striker. And Daily Record claim an attacking midfielder and striker are on Lennon ’ s wish-list with the manager focusing on permanent deals.

Celtic have plenty of options to play as a No.10 and aren't short of firepower in attack but they do seem light on natural wingers at present.

James Forrest's injury could see him miss next month's tussle with Rangers and a right-sided alternative has been coveted since it was clear Marian Shved wasn't going to cut it.

A wide man with versatility could be the other option if the Hoops boss is in the market for more than one signing. Mikey Johnston is still working his way back to fitness and Moi Elyounoussi's form could signal a return to the 4-3-3.

Record Sport Online runs the rule over five potential attacking options who could offer versatility in the final third.

Gyrano Kerk (Utrecht)

The winger was the subject of a last-gasp bid back in January according to Utrecht but no follow-up offer has materialised. Kerk is highly regarded in the Netherlands and Ajax boss and mentor Erik ten Hag tipped him for a big transfer exit during the summer. The 24-year-old is lightning quick and would be a perfect fit to add a fresh option on the right wing. Kerk, like Forrest, prefers playing on his natural side and posted eerily similar stats to the Scotland international last season.

Paul McCartney: Knowing I reunited with John Lennon gives me strength

  Paul McCartney: Knowing I reunited with John Lennon gives me strength Sir Paul McCartney has admitted how grateful his is that he had the chance to reconnect with Beatles bandmate John Lennon before his death. The relationship became strained between the pair after Lennon quit the band, leading to its dissolution after the release of their final album Let It Be in 1970. Lennon was murdered by obsessed fan Mark Chapman outside his New York apartment on 8 December, 1980, aged 40. McCartney, 78, has now revealed in conversation with Lennon’s son Sean Ono Lennon, 44, for new BBC Radio 2 documentary John Lennon At 80: “I always say to people, one of the great things for me was that after all The Beatles rubbish and all the arguing and the business,

Neil Lennon , while naturally dismayed at the loss of one of his two best players – Callum McGregor being the other – declined to join in with the snipers. “We made it pretty clear that we wanted Callum to stay at Celtic ,” Lennon said. “He’ s an important player here.

Lennon attacked , hearts 0 Celtic 3 - Продолжительность: 5 :59 starryplough1888 27 986 просмотров. Neil Lennon was struck hit in the face by an object thrown from the crowd.

Kerk (0.37 goals per game) was marginally more prolific than Forrest (0.3) with both providing 0.37 assists per match. The Amsterdam-born star has impressive numbers and it's clear why Leeds are weighing up a £7m offer for his services. He's the perfect player on the counter attack with his searing pace and commitment to playing simple low crosses into the box.

There's a strong argument there's no need for Kerk with Jeremie Frimpong running free in the 3-5-2 and perhaps the significant financial investment needed to secure him would be better served elsehwere.

Niclas Eliasson (Bristol City)

Another player who has been on Celtic's watchlist in recent seasons and could make financial sense before the window closes. Eliasson is adept on either wing and has only one year remaining on his deal at Ashton Gate. The 24-year-old has also been linked with Aston Villa in the past and has earned rave reviews for his ability to isolate defenders and take them on.

It would be a big ask of him to play the wing-back in a 3-5-2. The main knock on him is his goalscoring return as he has only netted seven times in 94 appearances for City. But there's no doubt Eliasson would represent an affordable option to bolster the final third.

Patrick Roberts (Manchester City)

It's easy forget the fanfare that greeted Roberts when he returned to Celtic in the summer of 2017 fresh off his initial action-packed 18-month loan spell from Manchester City. But his second spell at Parkhead was marred by injury and inconsistent peformances. He received a Hampden farewell after securing the double Treble but was an unused substitute in the 2-0 win against Motherwell.

The setbacks continued when he failed to make an impact at Norwich following a mixed stay with Girona. His failure at Carrow Road was a surprise because Daniel Farke's fan-friendly style appeared a perfect fit. He did rebound during a more encouraging sojourn at Middlesbrough but is now on the lookout for his next move. He has two years remaining on his deal at the Etihad.

The 10 free agents Celtic could look to sign before January

  The 10 free agents Celtic could look to sign before January The summer transfer window may have come and gone but it doesn’t mean Celtic can’t still add to their squad before the madness begins once again in the New Year. The Hoops made six signings in recent months and have dropped just two points out of a possible 27 in their opening nine league games, trailing rivals Rangers, who have played a game more, by one point. Vasilios Barkas, Albian Ajeti, Shane Duffy, David Turnbull, Moi Elyounoussi and Diego Laxalt all made the move to Celtic Park, with a number of players leaving on free transfers and also on loan.However, Neil Lennon still has the option to make more additions before January’s window opens, through the free-agent market.

NEIL LENNON last night claimed Celtic go into tomorrow’ s Scottish Cup Old Firm showdown as serious Lennon admitted: “I think Rangers are favourites with home advantage. They are not playing badly at all and Celtic hope to have vice-captain Daniel Majstorovic fit again after a hamstring injury.

FT: Celtic 3-0 Hibernian - Callum McGregor drives shot home from 25 yards, Albian Ajeti capitalises on poor defending for second & Mohamed Elyounoussi slips in third. FT: Ross County 0-3 Aberdeen - Marley Watkins opens scoring .Lewis Ferguson nets two penalties as Iain Vigurs sees red for hosts.

His familiarity with Celtic could earn him some consideration but it appears a long shot that the 23-year-old could reproduce the thrilling performances that became his speciality under Brendan Rodgers. Roberts prefers operating on the right despite being naturally left-footed.

James McClean (Stoke City)

Social media was ablaze last week with a rumour that James McClean was set to follow in the footsteps of Shane Duffy and join his boyhood club. Stoke boss Michael O'Neill poured cold water on it but it's a deal that will likely be discussed until he either joins the Hoops or hangs up his boots.

McClean probably isn't a perfect fit but he has experience playing wing-back that's on the left side but any opportunities further up the field appear unlikely with Elyounoussi hitting top form after an inconsistent start to the season. The 31-year-old in many ways would be a perfect Jonny Hayes upgrade. A utility player who scores more goals, creates more chances and plays more minutes than his Republic of Ireland teammate.

Noa Lang (Ajax)

Twente called off their quest to land Lang on loan for a second time earlier this month but the 21-year-old still faces a big ask to earn regular playing time this season. The Netherlands U21 star is tipped for the top and the Premiership champions have previously kept a close eye on his development.

20 players Celtic could possibly target in pre-contract January deals

  20 players Celtic could possibly target in pre-contract January deals Celtic managed to bring in six players during the summer transfer window. AC Milan left-back Diego Laxalt was the final addition, arriving on a season-long loan deal. The Uruguayan joins Vasilios Barkas, Albian Ajeti, Shane Duffy, Moi Elyounoussi and David Turnbull through the door at Celtic Park, and the Hoops’ recruitment team will more than likely be turning their attention to the January window. The turn of the year also gives the club the opportunity to explore pre-contract agreement deals with players who are out of contract at the end of the 2020/21 season.

Lang can play across the front three and boss Ten Hag is a major fan of a player who is being tipped to eventually develop into someone who can replace Hakim Ziyech, but any late signing developments could leave Lang better served to complete another loan spell.

10 wingers Neil Lennon could look at in January .
Celtic may well be on the search for a new winger in the January transfer window. Reports last weekend claimed Neil Lennon was looking to sign a winger in the final days of the transfer window. However, the Hoops only managed to bolster their left-back options, with AC Milan’s Diego Laxalt becoming the club’s sixth and final senior signing of the summer. So, presuming Lennon wants to add to his wide options in the New Year, we thought we’d take a look at 10 wingers who could be possible targets. 2/11 SLIDES © James Chance/Getty Images Sport Bright Osayi-Samuel Celtic have already been linked with a move for QPR winger Bright Osayi-Samuel.
