Bhoy boss remains tight-lipped on January signings


Celtic manager Neil Lennon remains coy on which players he will try to sign during the January transfer window reports

The 40-year-old revealed he doesn't want to be dragged into transfer speculation, and instead turned his attention to tonight's UEFA Europa League Group I clash with Atletico Madrid.

Lennon was spotted at The Valley on Monday evening, casting his eye over Charlton and Huddersfield's Npower League One clash - adding to speculation that the Bhoys boss is considering a January move for Terriers striker Jordan Rhodes, who has been linked to Parkhead.

"I was down watching the game," he confirmed. "[But] I'm not here to talk about any players, particularly players who are under contract with another club.

"We are not even in December yet and I'm being asked questions about players coming in or going out.

"I'm preparing a team for a big European game and I'm not prepared to talk about much else really."

Celtic have also been credited with an interest in Maritimo's Baba Diawara, but Lennon refused to either confirm or deny rumours about alleged targets, until they are successfully signed to Celtic Park.

"We have our eye on a couple of targets but there are no guarantees of getting deals done," he added. "We have come through a bit of a rough period in the season and we are on a good run now.

"Confidence is high in the squad and there is a good feeling around the club again and we are looking forward to the upcoming games.

"When January comes we will deal with it behind closed doors as best we can."
