Neil Lennon has made it clear that he wants a few more signings in at Celtic before the window closes, but the fans aren’t too pleased by his transfer declaration.
The Hoops boss stated: “We are working to bring 3 or 4 players in before the window shuts.”
While the news of new signings normally gets fans excited and plotting their potential starting XI, this hasn’t gone down well with an already irate fanbase.
The supporters are growing increasingly infuriated with the higher-ups at the club, with Lennon and his assistant John Kennedy receiving abuse, not to mention the chief executive Peter Lawwell, who’s been in for a tanking of late.
The club has been in disarray in the past week, with the Champions League exit opening the floodgates to the fans’ concerns. One such concern is how poor the transfer window has been for the Parkhead club, which is why Lennon’s comments haven’t inspired the supporters.
Here’s what they had to say about his transfer declaration on Twitter:

Been peddling that line for weeks..
Hatem a doubt? Can’t wait to have Ajer played out of position again. Maybe McGregor will be better at RB than LB?

Utterly embarrassing yet again from Celtic. You’ve had since February to identify and buy players, what’s the excuse this time?
Pathetic…ST holder and share holder, don’t bother with the dividend payment this year. Cobble it together and buy someone!

I think we all know you aren’t working to bring players in. You stated we would have a left back in after Tierney left.. still waiting. More you say more lies you peddle for Lawwell.

Said weeks ago there were contingency plans for if Tierney left. Everyone and their granny knew he’d be going. Where are these plans? Don’t say bolongoli was the first team left back replacement?

Aye I’ve heard that one before. An absolute shambles of a window, no forward planning whatsoever. Hopefully If we do get new recruits In, It’s not too late regarding the league.
