Many Celtic fans have been talking about Neil Lennon’s latest comments regarding the club’s plans for the January transfer window.
Lennon was recently talking to Celtic TV (via CeltsAreHere) and he revealed the club’s plans for the January transfer window. The Hoops boss said that Celtic have identified the areas in which they need to improve in and the club is working about it in the background.
He made it clear that he is hopeful that Celtic will do business next month that will add some quality to the first-team.
“We have identified areas where we want to add and we are working away in the background on that.”
“Hopefully we will get a bit of business done in January that will freshen things up and hopefully add a bit of quality to the squad.”
Should Lennon be allowed to make signings in January?
An update involving these comments from Lennon was relayed on Facebook by Celtic News Now recently. Many Hoops fans made their opinion clear about it. One fan even mentioned fans wanting their season ticket money back, which relates to a protest at the board.
What did Celtic fans make of Neil Lennon’s comments about the January transfer window?
The Hoops did make several signings in the summer transfer window. They spent a fee of £11.43 million to sign players on a permanent basis. The likes of Shane Duffy, Diego Laxalt and Mohamed Elyounoussi had arrived on loan deals in the summer (as per Transfermarkt).
The Hoops managed to keep hold of Odsonne Edouard, Kristoffer Ajer and Olivier Ntcham, as Eboue Kouassi was the only permanent departure. Jozo Simunovic and Jonny Hayes saw their contracts out in the summer too (as per Transfermarkt).
Some other Celtic fans also made their opinion clear about Lennon’s comments.
Some of these fans don’t trust Lennon to sign the right players in January and they are making their opinion very clear about this issue.
The Hoops have now conceded as many as 27 goals in their last 11 games in all competitions. This might be a sign of the fact that they need defensive signings in January (as per Whoscored). And since the club’s hierarchy is backing Lennon currently, perhaps they will allow him to make his own signings next month, so that he can turn things around at Parkhead.
