Kevin Doyle: Admired by Celtic boss Neil Lennon

The Parkhead boss failed with an attempt to lure the Republic of Ireland international to Glasgow in January but says he is now mulling over a summer swoop for the 29-year-old.

The Hoops' top-scorer Gary Hooper, who has 26 goals this season, is a target for English clubs and could be tempted south at the end of the current campaign - and Lennon believes Doyle could be the ideal replacement.

He is quoted in several newspapers on Tuesday morning saying: "I'm a big admirer of Kevin obviously - I tried to take him in January.

"I think he's a quality player. He is that all-round type of centre-forward that I really like. I can't talk about another club's player - I don't want to disrespect Wolves. But we wanted him."

Meanwhile, Lennon also confirmed that Anthony Stokes will be staying with the SPL champions, saying: "Anthony is a very important player for us."

This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
