Neil Lennon certainly seems eager to spend the £25 million that Celtic have received from Arsenal for signing Kieran Tierney.

The Hoops boss believes that the money received for Tierney could be used to improve a variety of areas of the Celtic side.

Lennon has identified five positions that can be improved with the £25 million.

“I’ll be standing with my hands out” Lennon said, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

“We’ll look to bring another left-back in, no question, and a right-back as well, a left winger, a right winger and maybe a centre-forward.”

Lennon’s comments will excite the Hoops support. If Celtic managed to bring in five players in the positions mentioned it would be a real boost going forward for the side.


Of course, the most immediate position that needs to be improved is left-back. Technically, the Hoops have only one proper left-back in the team – Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo.

Jonny Hayes can also play in that position, but he is not a natural left-back. Therefore, it is important that the Hoops move to sign a left-back as soon as possible.

The departure of Tierney will be upsetting to a lot of Celtic supporters. He was one of the rare examples of a fan playing for the team they love.

However, the Hoops couldn’t really turn down the money that was offered. If the money allows the Hoops to build a strong squad, then selling Tierney was the right thing to do.
