Celtic boss Neil Lennon has urged Georgios Samaras and Joe Ledley to give him an indication of whether they are willing to consider new contracts. "We are planning for next season, " said Lennon.

"And obviously we would like some sort of indication as to what they're going to do."

"The ball is all very much in their court," added the manager. "It's getting to the point where there will be a lot of speculation.

"We've made it clear that we are willing to speak them and we have spoken to Joe already on the situation, but we've heard nothing back.

"The contracts are up in the summer and they are two players we don't want to go, but we can't force them to stay.

"We are doing everything we can at the minute to do that.

"We have had no indication either way of what the players want to do.

"It's a difficult situation for us and for them. We spoke to both of them personally a while back but had nothing back since."
