Celtic recently finished the season as the league winners, but more importantly, they qualified for the latter stages of the Champions League. Manager Neil Lennon is hoping to build on the success by investing in the squad during the summer.

He has revealed that he will be having talks with the officials at Celtic in order to determine the budget he will have to spend in the summer. Lennon will also focus on keeping the star names at the club. This includes the likes of Victor Wanyama and Gary Hooper, who have been linked with a move to the Premier league in the last few months.

Celtic are unlikely to have massive transfer budget given the financial troubles affecting the Scottish clubs. As a result, there is a possibility that they could sell one of the big names in order to balance the books. Lennon has revealed that he will be sitting down with the hierarchy over the next week in order to determine these aspects. Celtic managed to win the Scottish Premier league title by a huge margin. They had a 79 points on the board compared to the 63 points of second placed Motherwell after 38 matches. They are expected to dominate once again next season.

"I'm going to sit down with them over the next week or so. I might even go to Ireland to see Dermot or see him in London. I'm hoping we can talk about what we're going to do for the close season because we haven't really had that conversation yet in terms of bringing players in, targets and what the budget's going to be. There will be a few players leaving and then I'm sure we'll get offers for a player or two. There are some players I'd dearly love to keep," said Lennon.
