Neil Lennon has spoken of his desire to reinvest the Kieran Tierney money in his playing side but the fans aren’t excited by his plans.
Celtic sold Tierney to Arsenal in the dying embers of the English transfer window for a fee of £25m, and it appears Lennon already has his masterplan for how to spend his new transfer kitty.
Speaking ahead of the Motherwell game, the Bhoys boss admitted he’d like as many as five new faces in, with a shortlist of three new defenders, two wingers and a striker.
It’s been a busy summer at Parkhead, though some fans are a little frustrated that more hasn’t been done, and this shopping list has got the fans questioning Lennon’s competency.
With many wingers already at the club, the prospect of two more bolstering the ranks does seem a little odd.
Others are frustrated that he’s not backing up his words, and said that they’d prefer to see the signings, rather than be told that they could happen.
Here’s how the disgruntled fans reacted to Lennon’s comments on Twitter…
He’s as naive as the rest of us.

He’ll be lucky to get 2 or 3. No chance of 5

How many wingers do we need

We have Forrest, Sinclair, Johnston, Shved, Morgan, Arzani, Hayes, Dembele..really dont need 2 more wingers

Talk is cheap. I’ve heard some amount of spin out of Celtic Park this summer.
Actions speak louder.
I’ll not hold my breath waiting on 5 new signings

Don’t need another RW we have three Forrest, Shved, Arzani. A bit lightweight in CM area. If we want to rest brown and McGregor.

He also said he hoped 2 would be in before the Cluj game.. still waiting on at least 1 of them ?
He’s dreaming if he thinks he’s even getting 10% of that kt pot
