Kevin Doyle: Admired by Celtic boss Neil Lennon

The Irishman failed to lure the Republic of Ireland international to Glasgow in January but is refusing to rule out another bid this summer.

Hoops top-scorer Gary Hooper, who has 26 goals this season, is a target for English clubs and Lennon believes 29-year-old Doyle could be the ideal replacement should he move south.

"I'm a big admirer of Kevin obviously, I tried to take him in January," said Lennon.

"I think he's a quality player. He is the all-round type of centre-forward I really like.

"I can't talk about another club's player as I don't want to disrespect Wolves, but we wanted him."

And asked if he would make a second signing move, Lennon replied: "I'd think about it."

Meanwhile, Lennon also confirmed striker Anthony Stokes will be staying at Parkhead, adding: "Anthony is a very important player for us."

Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
