Celtic boss Neil Lennon remains reticent on whether or not he’s going to make a move for Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy.
The Welshman’s future at Manchester City hangs precariously in the balance as flamboyant boss Roberto Mancini reshapes his squad for his first full season in charge, and Lennon is reportedly interested in bringing Bellamy to Glasgow.
Lennon is also reportedly anxious to hear from Republic of Ireland international Aiden McGeady to learn whether or not he’s accepted a move to Spartak Moscow.
Bellamy actually played alongside Lennon on a loan spell at Parkhead in 2005. Lennon captained the famous Scottish side before taking over as manager.
Asked by journalists whether or not the Scottish league side would be able to land a high profile signing like Bellamy, he responded that: “I would hope so but I don’t know. It’s still up in the air as regards that.
“I don’t know if we will, but if not we have got a lot of attacking options as it is.
“We are scoring goals and creating a lot of chances. We are playing at a tempo that even Braga struggled with,” said the manager.
The manager also said that he was “delighted” with his side’s performance against Braga , adding that his captain “played a real captain’s role, but then that’s just my opinion.” but added with dissatisfaction that the side keeps conceding “soft goals”.
Neil Lennon also said today that he hopes to hear back from McGeady as soon as possible. Revenue derived from the transfer would be a useful way for the club to try capture some more big name stars for its burgeoning and improving side, according to the manager.
