Hinkel ponders Celtic future

Andreas Hinkel admits uncertainty over whether he will begin the season at Celtic. Bhoys boss Neil Lennon has said he will consider bids for the German right-back, who has one year left to run on his contract.

Lennon has already indicated new signing Cha Du-Ri will replace Hinkel as his first-choice right-back this season, leaving the former Stuttgart defender's future up in the air.

"I don't know where I will be when the season starts," said the 28 year old.

"Everyone knows the situation. I have one year left on my contract.

"I spoke to the manager about it and I am still here now but I have one year left.

"We will see what happens by the end of the transfer window.

"I want to stay here but because I have one year left, the club might want to sell me.

"If I don't go because no-one is interested then I will stay."
