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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
