Celtic have confirmed first-team coach Alan Thompson has left the club.

On Sunday night, lawyers acting on Thompson's behalf claimed he had been dismissed in a phone call with manager Neil Lennon. In a statement released on Celtic's official website, the Parkhead club said the former Hoops midfielder had refused to meet with Lennon, a former team-mate.

It read: "We can also confirm that a meeting was set up between Alan Thompson and Neil Lennon on Sunday [June 3] in Newcastle. However, Alan refused to meet with Neil, hence the reason for the discussion being conducted by telephone. The matter is now in the hands of lawyers and, therefore, we are unable to go into any further details."
