Lennon anticipates Celtic exodus

Celtic manager Neil Lennon believes that the club faces an uphill struggle to keep their best players, according to BBC Sport.

The Scottish champions enjoyed a good run to the last 16 of the Champions League but were convincingly eliminated by Juventus on Wednesday, losing 5-0 on aggregate.

And now former Northern Ireland international Lennon admits that the Bhoys could lose the likes of Victor Wanyama and Gary Hooper in the summer.

Lennon said: “There’ll be players who want to progress their careers and it’s a progression for us too. We want to bring in players, develop them and sell them on [for a profit]. So far that strategy’s worked for us.

We’ll have a look at things and see how players are feeling at the end of the season. We have a championship to win and we’re in a cup semi-final.

As well as Wanyama and Hooper’s possible departures, midfielder Joe Ledley becomes a free agent at the end of the season as his contract expires, and he may well choose to leave Celtic Park.

Celtic are currently top of the Scottish Premier League, 16 points clear of their nearest rivals, Motherwell.
