The Bhoys are looking to add during the winter window and have made the acquisition of a new striker a top priority.

Lennon has, however, been quick to point out that he will have to spend big if he is to get a proven marksman on board.

Goal-getters do not come cheap but, with the club having offloaded Gary Hooper to Norwich City over the summer, Mjallby feels the Celtic board need to speculate to accumulate.

He told the Daily Record: "We have worked hard and been quite successful at developing players. Sometimes, though, you just need experience.

"In an ideal world, you'll have a mix of young, hungry players and experience as well.

"I don't think it's too much to ask to maybe get a striker who might cost £5million. You are always a bit wary, though. Is he going to be worth £5million?

"The important thing is that they need to improve the team. We have been missing a player like Gary Hooper this season.

"They are hard to come by. That's just the way it is. It's not like we're in desperate need to get someone right now but we're always looking to get better and freshen things up."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
