Lennon has watched Huddersfield twice in the past week, against Burnley and Bolton, and speculation is mounting that Celtic are hoping to sign striker James Vaughan.

Vaughan has scored 12 goals so far this season for the Championship club, and Lennon revealed he rates the player.

"I've been watching a lot of players," said Lennon, whose team face Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership at Fir Park on Friday night.

"I'm not here to talk about one specific player. There were 22 players at Huddersfield-Burnley and 22 players at Bolton-Huddersfield.

"Maybe I wasn't specifically looking at James Vaughan. I've been linked with him and that's fine, people are putting two and two together.

"I have spoken to Mark Robins, I know Mark from my playing days. So it's not just James Vaughan I'm looking at but he is a player we think is a good player."

Some media outlets in Scotland have insisted Huddersfield manager Robins is reluctant to sell the 25-year-old.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
