NEIL LENNON managed to get two in the door at Celtic Park last month; Patryk Klimala and Imsmaila Soro. There were a number of outgoings with two permanent deals to take Lewis Morgan and Scott Sinclair elsewhere while a host of young talent went out on loan.

One person Lennon confirmed wanted to leave the club in January was Craig Gordon.

The 37-year-old knows he hasn’t got many years left in the game and wants to get back to player. Gordon was Celtic’s number one for four years but was dropped by Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon continued to play Scott Bain in the position when he arrived.

In the summer we managed to pull off the loan signing of Fraser Forster and with that both Bain and Gordon became supporting players.

The former Celtic number one wanted to head out in January because he’s in the final six months of his deal. Neil Lennon spoke of the awkward nature of things:

“It was an awkward decision for us – from the club’s point of view we don’t want to let him go but from a human side I can totally understand where he’s coming from at the minute.” Neil Lennon told RecordSport.

“The club’s stance is we want him here.

“It’s hard for a keeper, it’s an individual position, I understand where he’s coming from. But he’s training great and he looks great, though Fraser is our No.1.”
