Celtic's Neil Lennon hopeful over new signings

Celtic manager Neil Lennon says that he is hopeful of adding players to his squad after seeing a bid for Finnish striker Teemu Pukki rejected by Schalke.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon says that he is keen to add more players to his squad following their victory over Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League.

The club have had a bid for Finnish striker Teemu Pukki rejected by Schalke, and the manager admits that he is looking at a number of options ahead of the transfer deadline.

"We can do better but we are light at the minute, hopefully we will have four or five players to add to the squad," he told BT Sport.

"It's been frustrating as Schalke don't want to sell but we are working hard. We have other options we are looking at. If we can prevail, we will spend big money and strengthen the squad."

The Hoops claimed a 2-0 victory in today's early kickoff thanks to goals from Kris Commons and James Forrest that kept up their winning start in the league this season.
