Neil Lennon has confirmed Celtic's transfer coup over Old Firm rivals Rangers with the signing of Ibrox target Pawel Brozek from Trabzonspor.

Rangers manager Ally McCoist confirmed his interest in the Polish striker over the weekend but the Parkhead club have agreed terms with the player and subject to a medical he will sign on loan until the end of the season, with a permanent deal on the table.

The Celtic boss was speaking at Hampden after Anthony Stokes scored twice in the Hoops' 3-1 Scottish Communities League Cup semi-final win over Falkirk to set up a final meeting with Kilmarnock. He said: "I know Rangers were interested but we have been involved with players before and Rangers have nipped in."
