Celtic: Fans react with cynicism to Neil Lennon’s transfer comments

In his pre-match press conference ahead of tonight’s Europa League play-off first leg against AIK, Celtic manager Neil Lennon told reporters that the Scottish champions are hoping to make multiple additions to the squad before the transfer window closes on September 2nd.

Celtic’s official Twitter channel @CelticFC tweeted quotes from Lennon saying that the Hoops are aiming to bring in up to four players in the remaining 11 days of the transfer window.

Celtic have signed five players so far this summer, spending a cumulative £11.83m on Christopher Jullien, Boli Bolingoli and Hatem Abd Elhamed [according to TransferMarkt.co.uk] and bringing in Irish teenagers Luca Connell and Jonathan Afolabi on free transfers.

Fraser Forster could become the Hoops’ sixth addition of the current transfer window, with The Sun reporting that the goalkeeper is having a medical today ahead of a proposed move from Southampton.

However, the depth of Lennon’s current squad could be tested tonight, with several injury concerns ahead of the meeting with AIK at Celtic Park.

According to the Daily Express, Scott Bain is definitely out while Abd Elhamed is doubtful, Tom Rogic is not yet match fit and Kristoffer Ajer is not a certain starter after his shoulder injury against Dunfermline last week.

These Celtic fans on Twitter were cynical in their reactions to Lennon’s transfer window comments:
