Celtic boss Lennon keen on Burnley’s Austin

Celtic manager Neil Lennon says he would love to sign Burnley striker Charlie Austin this summer.

The 23-year old scored 24 goals in 37 Championship appearances for the Clarets this season and has emerged as a strong target for Lennon, however, the Hoops boss feels he may not be able to afford the former Swindon Town ace’s services.

"What I’ve been after for a while is a physical centre-forward, someone to head the ball. But they’re a dying breed,” he said.

“If an English club flash their eyes at a player you are also always swimming against the tide.

“I like Charlie Austin at Burnley. Whether we can afford him or not is another matter.”
