BUILDING ON SUCCESS

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.

PLAYERS WANTED

Celtic have had a very good first half of the season, but they are in danger of paying for their good form due to the interest in several players from clubs abroad.

However, the Celtic manager Neil Lennon has confirmed that the club will not be selling the top players and jeopardising the season. Celtic are currently top of the Scottish Premier league table with a significant advantage, while they are also in the last 16 stage of the Champions League as well. They will be facing the Italian club Juventus in this round.

Bad attitude

The Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that the attitude of the players was not to blame for the recent defeat at the hands of Hibernian. Neil Lennon has come under intense pressure in recent weeks due to a run of poor results, which has left the team not having a great advantage in terms of the league title.

Celtic Football Club v Ross County

Currently at the top of the Scottish Premier League, Celtic take on Ross County on 22 January at home. Ross County is currently third from the bottom of the Scottish Premier League table, and just one point ahead of St Mirren and 6 above Dundee.

So, will this be the one sided match that most people are predicting? Certainly the bookmakers believe that it will and currently odds on a Celtic victory are around 2/11, though for the diehard Ross County fans who enjoy betting on their club, they can find odds as high as 12/1, and a draw is priced at around 7/1.

DELIGHTED WITH WIN

The Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that he is extremely happy following the 1-0 win over Aberdeen in the opening match of the season, according to the Anfield Roar fanzine. Neil Lennon has said that it was extremely important for Celtic to have taken the three points in the first match in order to push for another title.

THOMSON BACKS CELTIC

Celtic's Alan Thompson has said that he is extremely certain that the final old firm derby of the season will not be different from the ones that have been played over the years.

This is certainly a unique situation whereby this could be the last old firm derby ever. Rangers are currently in a difficult financial situation after having been put into administration following their failure to pay the taxes. It is thought that Rangers are in debt burden that could be as high as £ 50 million. No buyer has been found for the club as of yet, which has put their future in huge doubt.

SENT TO THE STANDS

Celtic manager Neil Lennon will be sitting in the stands for the next two matches for Celtic, as he has been given a touchline ban for his comments made about the referee Collum after the 1-0 defeat at the hands of Kilmarnock in the Scottish League Cup final.

Celtic recently won the title and there has been a lot of praise for Neil Lennon and the amazing work he has been doing at Celtic Park.

However, this might come as a sour grape for the manager, who saw his side suffer a shock defeat at the hands of Kilmarnock in the final of the Scottish League Cup.

CELTIC MAKE THE SEMIS

Celtic managed to enter into the semifinals of the Scottish cup after a 4-0 win over Dundee United, but Neil Lennon continued to not face the media after reportedly being extremely unhappy with the coverage of his club.

Celtic managed to record this thumping victory over 10 man Dundee United, which helped them enter into the semifinals.

IZAGUIRRE AIMING FOR STRONG RETURN

Celtic star Emilio Izaguirre has said that he expects to come back strong over the next few months in order to capture the Player of the Year award he won last season.

The 25-year-old full-back suffered a serious injury recently and has been out of the first team action for quite a while now.

However, speaking on his return from first-team action, the defender has said that he expects the title to be his once he returns to form. In the absence of Emilio Izaguirre, players like Gary Hooper and Scott Brown have become the favourites of the crowd.
