LENNON SHOULD STAY
Former Scottish player Bertie Auld has said that manager Neil Lennon should not be looking at leaving Celtic in the summer. Neil Lennon recently managed to guide Celtic to yet another league title, while they also made it into the knockout stages of the Champions League as well.
The crowning achievement of the former player will undoubtedly be the back-to-back titles in the Scottish first division and also the Scottish cup this season. As a result of the three trophies won in the last two years, Celtic will now be looking to consolidate their position in European competitions.
Lennon, though, has been linked with a move away from Celtic due to the inability to come to agreement in terms of finances. Lennon said after the close of the season that he would be looking to make a couple of signings in the summer in order to strengthen the team. He also wanted to keep star players like Gary Hooper at the club as well. However, it is understood that the club will be acting against his wishes by selling a couple of players, while he is also unlikely to have a significant transfer kitty as well. Auld, though, has said that Lennon will be moving to a smaller club if he decides to leave Celtic.
"Neil's a big part of the club at this particular moment. There's talk about him going elsewhere. But why go to a lesser club? Money isn't everything. I don't think Neil's short of a few quid. Some of these clubs are headaches and you're looking over your shoulder. If Celtic had a 100,000-seater stadium, they'd have 90,000 season tickets, and they would support whoever managed it. So why give it up just to change for a few quid?" said the 75-year-old, who won the European cup with Celtic.
