    Yeah definitely mate.

    The thing is he hopefully is talking nonsense to the press but I just wish he wouldn’t tell them anything instead of trying to make out the squad is perfect when it’s glaringly obvious we still have areas that need massively improved on- LWB been the obvious one.

    Neil Lennon has hinted that Celtic are only on the lookout for one more signing this summer as he revealed he's pleased with the business they've already done.

    Shane Duffy joined from Brighton on loan while the Hoops splashed out on Vasilis Barkas, David Turnbull and Albian Ajeti. Around £14.5million has been spent in total this summer and the manager is so far happy with his new recruits.

    Celts remain hopeful of bringing in a left-back to replace the outgoing Boli Bolingoli and challenge Greg Taylor for his spot. Charlton's Alfie Doughty and Preston's Ben Davies are the two most notable targets.

    And Lennon suggested that, if he can complete the signing of a new defender, he'd happily have concluded his business.

    "We're working away in the background trying to get the right fit and the right player in the right position," he said. "I'm delighted with the business we've done. Shane has come in and had an instant impact.

    "Barkas is settling in very well, Ajeti has scored three goals already with limited time on the pitch. We've still got David Turnbull, he's made his debut, to get his first start, we're delighted with that signing too. And then there's Elyounoussi.

    "We've brought in real quality and as time goes by we'll see that manifest itself as we go along.

    "It's a different market and not a lot of business being done so in that aspect in terms of bringing players in, like all dealings they're protracted at times but in terms of attracting players here it's been good."

    Definitely. I love Lenny, but I’ve found myself paying less and less attention to what he says in his press conferences.

    At an absolute minimum we need a left back and winger in. I’d maybe take his comments to mean that someone like Doughty wouldn’t be seen as first team ready, therefore would be more a development signing than a ready made first team addition, but I can’t see only one more coming in.

    Need at the very least two in. If we signed three of the ones we've been linked to - say Uronen, Davies and Doughty - it'd be far from excessive. I think Neil knows all that and is just trying to play it cool to the press. Would rather he said nothing tbh.

    Today, it is one; yesterday, it was zero; a week ago, it was three.

    People who think that Lennon is 'playing' the media are giving him too much credit.

    Aye same..

    Doughty has gone a bit dry for me..

    After our second bid I'd have thought we'd be aware of what was needed to get it over the line and submit something close..

    I think Douglas will be our fall-back option if we don't get Doughty. Not a bad player by any means, but is probably as slow as taylor and quite injury prone.

    I think you might be right, and it would be massively disappointing for me.

    Lennon would be just as well coming out and saying "I ain't got a clue, I'm just happy to be here and don't want to rock the boat again".

    That would be an honest answer, we could end up with another 2 or 3 and he'll be one of the last to know about it!

    Hope no..

    Doughty over Douglas any day..

    One is rapid, on the up and suits our side/formation to a tee. The other's a Hun..

    Ryan Sessegnon on loan. Murmurings starting to resurface.

    Would love it but can’t see it.

    They could easily sell him for £20m or so down there due to him being young and English.

    Probably go back to Fulham.
