12 Jul Transfer information and rumours LIVE: Barca cover Griezmann launch clause
Celtic director Neil Lennon is still expecting to sign two defenders before the end of the summertime transfer window.
Lennon utilized Nir Bitton in centre-half at the Champions League qualifying win over FK Sarajevo on Tuesday as fresh signing Christopher Jullien wasn’t prepared to play with, while Kristoffer Ajer needed to play right-back.
“Nir can perform in the back, but it is not perfect,” said Lennon. “Christopher is not up to speed yet and we’re still seeking to fortify there, also.
“Right-back is an integral region to fortify. Kristoffer was excellent, but we are searching to bring caliber in. It isn’t a simple procedure, but we’re working out from the background”
