Neil Lennon wants to add to high-flying Celtic squad


Neil Lennon was ecstatic with Celtic’s 4-0 win at St Mirren on Sunday but admitted he is seeking recruits in the transfer window.

The Hoops ran riot in the second half after drawing a blank in the opening 45 minutes, with Charlie Mulgrew breaking the deadlock shortly after the resumption.

Anthony Stokes added a second before Kris Commons took his tally for the season to 17 goals with a brace as Celtic extended their unbeaten Scottish Premiership run to 20 games.

“It was an exceptional performance,” Lennon said. “[But] we do feel as if the squad needs strengthening.”
