LENNON WANTS TO STRENGTHEN
The Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that there is every possibility that he could strengthen the team in order to perform well in the European stages. Celtic are guaranteed European football this season, while they also have the possibility to go one step further by playing in the group stages of the Champions League.
They have a 2-0 lead coming into the second leg against Helsingborg. Celtic have an extremely strong squad this time around and it showed in the match against Inverness. A lot of the new players playing in the match were extremely hungry for success and Neil Lennon is keen to maintain it for the future matches as well.
However, the manager has also looked at the possibility of bringing in a few players in the final few days of the transfer window. If Celtic were to take part in the group stages of the Champions League, it would not only guarantee the club the arrival of around £ 30 million in new funds, but also the need for new players as well. The group matches will certainly take its toll on the existing squad because of the league commitments as well. As a result, Neil Lennon is looking to bring in a few players.
"If we do qualify, we won't be spending £6m or £7m or anything like that, it will be sensible. We have a structure in place, regardless of whether we go through or not, so it will be players within that bracket that we think will enhance us. Obviously, we'll have a better chance of attracting better players if we get through to the Champions League. We've been working away in the background for three or four players," said Neil Lennon after the 4-2 win over Inverness during the weekend.
