Celtic to respect Elfsborg stance on Bangura

Elfsborg boss Jorgen Lennartsson plans to play loan striker Mohamed Bangura in Champions League qualifying this week.

Elfsborg boss Jorgen Lennartsson plans to play loan striker Mohamed Bangura in Champions League qualifying this week.

The 24-year old Sierra Leone international is on a 12-month loan from Celtic but Swedish side Elfsborg will field him in the first leg of third round qualifying at Parkhead on Wednesday night and Hoops boss Neil Lennon says he has to accept the fact.

“Look, we have made our position clear on it,” he told SunSport after watching Elfsborg draw 1-1 with Atvidaberg on the weekend.

“If he plays him then we will have to respect that decision. And we will just get on with it.

“I do not want to put any more pressure on him.

“It is a tough situation for him but if he plays, we will deal with it.

“He was good in the game. The penalty he missed was poor but his movement was good as well as his link-up play.

“He was a threat so he is comfortable in this environment.”
