Celtic round-up: Interest in Tierney, Dembele shades Rodgers, Lennon ready

Interest in Tierney

Defender Kieran Tierney appears to be a wanted man, with Arsenal preparing a £25 million bid for the player this summer according to The Sun.

The Gunners have apparently been tracking Tierney for two years, and Unai Emery is ready to get behind a move for the talented full-back, who has a contract with Celtic until 2023.

New Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers will also consider a move for Tierney if Ben Chilwell leaves the King Power Stadium this summer, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

Dembele shades Rodgers

Former Celtic striker Moussa Dembele has seemingly taken a swipe at his former manager in a series of Tweets.

The Frenchman wrote ‘#interesting’ following Rodgers’ official confirmation as the new Leicester boss, followed by ‘#AndIfYouDontKnowNowYouKnow #IToldYou’.

Dembele and Rodgers allegedly had a difficult working relationship during their time together at Parkhead, with the striker claiming he told him he could leave last summer.


He was eventually sold on transfer deadline day to Lyon for £20 million.

Lennon ready

New Celtic boss Neil Lennon has given his first press conference today following his appointment as Rodgers’ successor on Tuesday.

The 47-year-old is back at Parkhead as an interim manager following his first stint between 2010-2014.

He told the media: “This is a club that means a hell of a lot to me – as a player and as a manager. It’s a privilege. These opportunities come around once in a lifetime, and for me it’s come up twice.

“I’ll keep the current style, and I don’t think it’s too different to what I do. Attacking football is the DNA of the club.”

Lennon will hope to kick off with a victory over Hearts at Tynecastle tonight.
