The 24-year old gloveman was yesterday called into Roy Hodgsonās 25-man squad for upcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland and he was quick to thank Lennon for showing so much faith in him.
āI got a call from the boss on Wednesday to let me know he thought it was going to happen and then I found out for definite on Thursday,ā said the 24-year old who joined Celtic permanently from Newcastle United in the summer after two seasons on loan at Parkhead.
āThings have worked out very well so far at Celtic and I need to say a big thanks to everyone who has been involved.
āThe gaffer has really pushed hard for me to get in. Our goalkeeping coach Stevie Woods has been brilliant, along with all the sports science stuff.
āItās something Iāve aimed for and worked towards and Iām delighted. It probably wonāt sink in until Iāve been there and done it though.
āIām excited and looking forward to meeting up with the squad now.ā
