Neil Lennon’s latest transfer update hasn’t gone down well with the Celtic support, it is fair to say. The Hoops boss claimed on Twitter that the club were ‘working diligently in the background to bring players in’.

However, some fans on social media do not seem pleased with what Lennon had to say. One supporter even claimed that it was ‘not good enough’.

Here are some of the best reactions from social media to Lennon’s comments:

Celtic actually had a decent start to the transfer window. The signings of Christopher Jullien and Boli Bolingoli were done quite early by the club’s standards.

However, aside from the arrival of Hatem Abd Elhamed, things have slowed to a crawl on the transfer front for Celtic.

It is unlikely that Lennon’s comments will calm any fan worries about the rest of the transfer window. There is still more than enough time to get players in.

The transfer window does not close in Scotland until the 2nd of September. However, the disastrous Champions League defeat to Cluj might have put off some players who were thinking of joining the club.

Not having the opportunity to play in the Champions League is bound to affect the thinking of players. It promises to be an intriguing few weeks at Celtic Park. Should players not be signed in the next few weeks, the fans could be even more disgruntled.
