Celtic boss Neil Lennon would love for the club to be playing in England.

It was a concept championed by none other than Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho last week.

Asked if the dream scenario was to go to England’s top flight with Celtic, Lennon replied: “Yeah. Do I think it will happen? I hope. That’s not being disrespectful to the Scottish game, I’d just like to see it happen.

"Our reputation has been enhanced in the past couple of years and people are talking about the football club in a good light again on the European scene. That augurs well.

"Mourinho has happy memories of our meetings. Obviously there was the UEFA Cup final when he saw what the club could bring to a European environment. If that was to be the case in England, I’m sure they would bring the same thing."
