Celtic brass set to discuss five-year plan

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has revealed that he will meet with club officials next week to set out a five-year plan.

The Hoops celebrated their third straight Scottish title win with home supporters after drawing 1-1 with Ross County on Saturday and now the idea is to go about sorting a pathway for the next half-decade.

Lennon said that he will meet with chief executive Peter Lawwell and majority shareholder Dermot Desmond to discuss the scheme heading forward for the famous Glasgow club.

"I'm meeting Peter and Dermot here next week and we'll go over the budget and what the next five years hold," he told the Sunday Mail.

"Basically the board work that way, a five-year strategy. We're getting round to that again.

"We have frank and open discussions and it's always pretty healthy. Dermot's satisfied with the way things are going and has his finger on the pulse of the club."

Lennon added that the Champions League was again at the forefront of Celtic's plans as they get set to compete with the biggest and richest clubs in Europe.

"Looking at the latter half of our Champions League campaign this year, we need a bit of extra investment in the squad in terms of quality," he added.

"I want Champions League football every year and to do that we need to bring players in. I have a good core here that I'm very happy with. I just need to add a bit of quality, a few faces."
