Some Celtic fans are unhappy with latest transfer update
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’.
🗣️ NL: “We are working diligently in the background to bring players in and increase the quality, competition and strength in depth of the squad.”

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’.
“Not good enough”
Here are some of the best reactions from social media to Lennon’s comments:
Heard this same sound bite for weeks. Cost us a European tie. Not good enough

Very , very poor. If your hands are tied then you must speak up.

How long does it take though?! It’s a joke.

We shouldn't be looking to strengthen the squad we should be looking to strengthen the starting 11.

Change the record..Rogers and Teirney left due to lack of ambition……

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.
Still time for club to rescue situation
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.
