Neil Lennon: In talks over a new deal

Lennon is currently on a rolling contract with the Scottish champions and the club's hierarchy are keen to sort out his long-term future.

Northern Irishman Lennon, who is beginning his third season in charge of Celtic, was linked with a number of jobs in England over the summer, but he insists he is happy with the Bhoys and is hopeful of signing a new deal soon.

"There was speculation regarding me in the summer, but that's all it ever was, speculation," Lennon said.

"I still have a one-year rolling deal, but negotiations are ongoing and hopefully we will have something resolved in the next few weeks."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
