Victorious Lennon urges Celtic core to remain

Celtic manager Neil Lennon wants the core of his title-winning side to remain at Parkhead.

The Hoops clinched the Scottish Premier League with a 4-1 win over Inverness yesterday to make it two in a row and Lennon has implored his stars to stick around and make it a three-peat and perhaps even more.

“I don’t want to lose the core of the team because for me they have been magnificent. The three boys who scored – Gary Hooper, Joe Ledley and Georgios Samaras – have been brilliant since I came,” he said.

“Kris Commons, Charlie Mulgrew, James Forrest, Adam Matthews, Victor Wanyama and Beram Kayal all contributed greatly.

“Kelvin Wilson is another. He’s had a fantastic season and has really settled in to what we have asked of him.

“It is unfair to single anyone out because as a group they have been great.

“I think what they have achieved this year has shown they can compete against the best, while still being pretty strong domestically.

“That’s what we want to achieve every year.”
