Neil Lennon has sent out an ominous transfer warning despite Celtic banking £25m that wasn’t needed from the sale of Kieran Tierney.
Overnight there were quotes from the Irishman about looking to sign five players with the windfall but that expectation was drastically downgraded at today’s media conference.

After most European ties Lennon has spoken of hoping to bring in two players before the next deadline but since the first competitive game of the season only Hatem Abd Elhamed has arrived at the club.
Tierney’s departure leaves an obvious need for a left-back to be brought in with Boli Bolingoli appearing to be a wing-back trying to adapt to a new position.
Elhamed appears to be the only option at right-back with Kris Ajer, a central defender, being played out of position rather than use Tony Ralston.
Celtic have shed almost a dozen players since the end of last season but it appears that the club is still looking to move Jack Hendry, Eboue Kouassi and Scott Sinclair on to new clubs.
Although the English transfer window has closed most European nations are still open for business.
A very strange couple of dayshttps://t.co/JEZ7dLieBs
