Celtic manager Neil Lennon has promised that the club will look to strengthen his squad in the upcoming January transfer window, no matter the gap between ourselves and Rangers, The Scottish Sun report.
If we win the rest of our games between now and the winter break, we’ll be a massive eight points ahead of Steven Gerrard’s team, having played a game more.
A gap like that midway through the season could bring complacency to the club and perhaps restrict to the scope of what we’re looking to do when the transfer market opens.
However, Lennon is insistent that Celtic Park decision-makers will be looking to make his team stronger..
He also thinks the multi-million-pound acquisition, and subsequent form, of Odsonne Edouard has given the board something to think about, suggesting big deals could be in the offing.
As quoted by The Scottish Sun, the manager said: “This season he’s [Edouard] been magnificent. He’s got quality and class and it’s turned out to be money well spent and that will give the board something to think about!
“No matter what the gap is, we will look to strengthen.
“We may look at letting a couple of players go on loan. We are thinking of that at the minute, allied to the volume of games.”
Crucial we don’t stand still
You can’t knock what Celtic have achieved over the last few years. Incredible domestic success has had us all in dreamland, but when you are at the top it’s even more important to continue to improve and push on.
Rangers are incredibly motivated this season although we’re getting the better of them so far, we can’t stand still and let them take a shot at us.
Key positions need more depth, in attack most of all. We can’t let our season come down to worrying about Edouard picking up an injury. If we can sign real quality in that department we’ll be taking a big step forward.
That could also prove to be key for our European ambitions too.
Lennon sounds like he knows what is at stake, so hopefully the club get the required business done.
