Celtic manager Neil Lennon has warned any interest clubs off talented winger James Forrest.

The 22-year old Scotland international has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Cardiff City but Lennon insists the Glasgow giants are not looking to offload the star youngster anytime soon.

"It wouldn't be a surprise if other clubs were looking at James because he is a brilliant player," Lennon told the Daily Record.

"But he signed a long-term contract 18 months ago. We are months and months away from the window - he is not for sale.

"I don't know if people are trying to unsettle players here.

"It's as if everyone wants me to sell a player every month - people talked about Virgil van Dijk, Scott Brown, Fraser Forster and now James. These players are not going anywhere.”
