Soon to be Celtic manager Neil Lennon has yet to sign the deal which will announce him as the new permanent manager at the club.

However, there is one guarantee that Lennon should get from the Celtic board before he agrees to join the club. That should be that the club don’t rely has heavily on loan players as they have in recent years.

Even under the management of Brendan Rodgers, the Hoops were far too reliant on loan players. Unfortunately, most of the loan signings have not turned out to be that much of a success.

Therefore, Lennon must seek guarantees that the club will make purchases that are of a permanent nature.

Indeed, none of the loan signings that the Hoops made in January will be at the club next season. That shows that the deals haven’t worked out that successfully.
