NEIL LENNON is a hands-on manager and he wasted no time in getting acquainted with Celtic’s developmental side upon his arrival to Celtic Park as interim boss.

The Irishman turned up at the reserve league game between the bhoys and Dundee last week where he watched the young lads (and Marvin Compper) put six past the Dees to go top of the developmental league.


Lennon knows he must look to the young players to improve the side and see who can make the grade at first-team level. The likes of Armstrong Oko-Flex and Karamoko Dembele are young but there’s only so long you can hold them back from the limelight.

For others, it was heartening to see the interim Celtic boss down watching the team and young Wallace Duffy revealed the boost Neil Lennon gave the players after the thumping Dundee win.

“I know that Neil Lennon likes the youth set-up. Even at Hibs he brought through a lot of young players.” Duffy told the Celtic View.

“That’s encouraging that the manager has faith in young players. He came into the dressing-room after the Dundee game and was praising our performance.

“It helps, because you never know when you might get your chance to move up. Injuries happen all the time.”

Bayo also played his part in that win and is yet to make a start for the first team after his January move.
