Neil Lennon Celtic FC Scottish Premiership

Celtic have had to part ways with full-back Kieran Tierney who left Scotland to join Arsenal during the deadline day of the English transfer window.

But on the arrival front, Neil Lennon has not been able to make any headway since so far the club have managed to bring in only three paid transfers with defender Christopher Jullien being the most expensive one.

And after crashing out of the Champions League qualifiers the pressure has been building on Neil Lennon to make a few more signings in order to avoid any further hiccups.

Writing for the Sunday Post, Kenny Dalglish though has warned the club against making any unnecessary signings only because they have the available funds.

“Remember, Celtic lost a top-class left-back in Kieran Tierney because the boy wanted to go and try something different,” Dalglish wrote.

“You can’t replace that calibre of player, like with like. Not on Celtic’s budget and wage structure.

“They spent in the region of £10 million on their defence during the close season.

“It could be they have tried to splash out even more money, but can’t get the players to come, for whatever reason.

“Nobody should ever think that any club chief executive just sits around all day, and isn’t trying to improve things on an hourly basis.

“Believe it or not, sometimes you just can’t spend the money you have available.

“And it would be foolish to buy players just for the sake of it. That’s a guaranteed recipe for disaster.

“The transfer window in Scotland is open until September 2, and I’m sure there will be more quality additions made to the Hoops squad.

“So it means there will be one or two teething problems and different things tried to eventually find a solution.”
