Neil Lennon has given his biggest hint yet he expects John McGinn NOT to be a Hibs player by next week.
The Irishman hasn’t been enjoying the speculation and interest around his star player over the past month and came good on his promise to play John in the Europa League qualifiers, making him ineligible for any of Celtic’s CL qualifiers.
Many expected to see the midfielder sit out the game due to the interest from Celtic but the former Parkhead boss remained defiant.
Speaking about John afterwards, Neil was happy to see him playing well but admitted his days at Hibs look numbered, hinting he expect Celtic to come in with a third bid.
He said: “I was also pleased with John, the best thing was to get him playing and focusing on his job.
“He looked fit and his passing was good and showed he’s very much a Hibs player.
“That may change in the next week with a club or any other club that may come in for him.
