Midfielder Ledley and forward Samaras have both been given new offers from the Scottish champions, but are yet to reveal if they wish to stay at Celtic Park.

When asked if he believes the duo may leave Celtic in the January transfer window, Lennon said: "The honest answer would be, realistically, yes. The contracts are up in the summer.

"We are getting to the point where there will be a lot of speculation about both players but we have made it clear that we are willing to speak to them and we have spoken to Joe already but we have had nothing back.

"(They are) two players that we don't want to go but we can't force them to stay although we are doing everything we can at the minute to do that.

"But we have had no indication of what the players want to do. The ball is very much in their court at the minute.

"We are planning for next season anyway but obviously we would like some indication of what they are going to do. It is a difficult situation for us and for them.

"I spoke to them both personally a while back but I have had nothing back since. I have no idea if there are any offers for them, any interest in them. We have had no phone calls for them."

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.
