Neil Lennon has said he is hoping to add at least half a dozen new faces to the Celtic squad during the transfer window.

According to Herald Scotland, the Bhoys manager is preparing to bolster his team in anticipation of a busy season both domestically and in Europe.

“I hope to bring in maybe half a dozen,” Lennon said.

“It’s important because we have priorities – the league and hopefully also Champions League qualification which would set the season up for us.

“We are working very hard to find the right quality of player within our wage bracket to make us better.

Lennon will be hoping to bring in a couple of defenders and possibly another striker to add to the arrival of David Turnbull yesterday.

The Hoops boss is also aware of possible interest in some of his own players, amid reports that Callum Mcgregor and Kieran Tierney are both subjects of interest to other clubs.

Lennon is hoping to put his own stamp on the squad and also freshen things up for the campaign ahead. There’s no doubt that the team looked tired and worn in the second half of last season. With the return of Leigh Griffiths and a fit-again Tierney along with Anthony  Ralston, it will be an interesting few weeks for Hoops fans.
