Lennon suggests big role for Bitton at Celtic in 2019/20

Neil Lennon has suggested Nir Bitton will have a big role to play in the upcoming season.

Bitton returned to the first-team picture in January as a substitute against Hamilton, and went on to make 10 appearances for the Treble Treble winners.

 

Speaking after Celtic’s 3-1 win over Sarajevo, in which Bitton was deplyed as a central defender, Lennon said (Scottish Sun): “I’m looking for a big season from Nir, no matter what position he plays.

“We have now thrown down the challenge to him to step up and make an impact on the team. He has the game to do it.
