Celtic manager Neil Lennon has issued a worrying message over the prospects of making any last-minute transfers before the market closes on Friday, as per Daily Express.
The Bhoys boss conceded he would love to make new signings before the deadline, but at the same time, he is pleased to stick with the squad at his disposal and doesn’t expect any marquee signing this January.
he told the media via the Daily Express:
“You have to keep calm. You have to not get yourself into a tizzy and panic and take a step away and have a look and see what’s required.
“Fans want the marquee signing in the car park but sometimes that’s not realistic.
“We’d all love that. But sometimes it can go the other way. It can upset the dynamic in the dressing room and that’s something we are mindful of.
“Its harder to do that kind of signing now. The way the money is elsewhere it’s very difficult.
“We’re working away but if we don’t bring anyone else in then I’ll be happy with what we have.
“The squad has good depth and quality.”
The Hoops experienced a busy transfer window this month with two players arriving and two leaving Celtic Park.
They signed Patryk Klimala on four and a half years deal from Polish side Jagiellonia Bialystok, costing four million euros as the asking fee. Neil Lennon’s side also captured the signature of Ismaila Soro for the same period from Israeli side Beni Yehuda.
However, Celtic fans hoping for some last-minute transfer activity may have been disappointed by their manager’s latest comments.
Celtic are currently at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, aiming to register their ninth straight league title.
They have established a five points gap at the top but their rivals Rangers are not far behind with Gerrard’s side still having a game in hand.
