Celtic round-up: Congerton targeted, Lennon’s demand, Weah’s apology

Congerton targeted

Celtic’s recruitment chief Lee Congerton is the subject of interest from Anderlecht (Sky Sport).

The senior figure has been at Parkhead for two years and has been tasked with helping to improve the squad with better players, which he has had varying degrees of success with.

Frank Arnesen, who employed Congerton at Chelsea, is currently the sporting at the Belgian outfit, which could make the move an attractive proposition for the 45-year-old.

Lennon’s demand

Neil Lennon has been pleased with what he’s seen during his second stint as a manager at the club so far, but admitted his team can improve by scoring more goals (The Daily Record).

He said: “I think we can score more goals. I think we can get the ball forward a little bit quicker.

“We have great pace in wide areas and through the middle in an attacking sense so I would like us to utilise that a little bit quicker if we can.”


Celtic have scored four in Lennon’s first two games, and in February they were fairly potent hitting 16 across all competitions.

Weah’s apology

Hoops striker Timo Weah has issued an apology to his parent club Paris Saint-Germain, after congratulating Manchester United player Tahith Chong on Instagram after the Red Devils dumped them out of the Champions League.

United went through on away goals after levelling the aggregate scoreline at 3-3, and Weah seemingly didn’t realise how his ‘Big baller’ message with accompanying emoji could have been perceived as celebratory.

Weah then apologised on his Instagram Story, translated by Talking Baws: “I sincerely apologise for not realising that I commented on something bad.

“Even though I was disappointed with Manchester’s win, I was happy for my two friends [Chong and Greenwood] who made their debut in the Champions League, which is also my dream.

“It’s just really bad timing on my part.”
