Biton is set to join Celtic from FC Ashdod, with Lennon confident that he would be a good addition to the ranks at Parkhead.

Lennon has declared that the signing of Biton is "more or less in the bag."

He added: "He will come into the squad so that will freshen us up."

The Northern Irishman also stated that Celtic "were close" to clinching the signature of Pukki.

Lennon claimed on Wednesday night that he had agreed a fee with Schalke for the striker, but not personal terms.

Both would be available for the Champions League campaign, and winger James Forrest believes the 2-1 victory over Barcelona last season will give Celtic confidence in their six big European nights.

He said: "It obviously gives us a bit of confidence knowing we can do it against big teams but we know it will be tough

"It could have been easier. Three big teams and we know it's going to be difficult.

"It is definitely a tough group and Barcelona and Milan will be the favourites."

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.

Sterling Case For Leaving 'Bigger' Club

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.
