NEIL LENNON has until midnight tomorrow evening to complete his summer rebuild of his Celtic first team squad.

The Hoops boss has brought in Christopher Jullien, Boli Bolingoli, Hatem Abd Elhamed and top prospects Luca Connell and Jonathan Abolafi on permanent deals.

Fraser Forester, Mortitz Buer and Mohamed Elyounoussi have arrived on season-long loan contracts.

There have been departures, too, as the Irishman trims his pool of players and FOUR more are heading for the Parkhead exit before the transfer deadline.

JACK HENDRY and CALVIN MILLER are likely to be part of the proposed deal for Kilmarnock left-back Greg Taylor with the switch at an advanced stage after the £3million-rated Scotland international defender underwent a medical last night, according to a report in the Sunday Mail.

Hendry, who cost £1.2million from Dundee in January 2018, is expected to agree a season-long temporary switch to the Rugby Park outfit while left-back Miller, who spent last term on loan at Dundee in the first part of the campaign and then Ayr United, will be offered a two-year contract.

ANTHONY RALSTON, who came on as an early substitute in the 4-1 Europa League play-off win over AIK in Stockholm on Thursday, is wanted by St Johnstone.

Lennon is eager for the Scotland Under-21 defender to get game-time and it will be limited at the champions this term with the arrivals of Elhamed and Bauer.


JACK AITCHISON, the young striker who made a sensational debut for the club when he netted with his first touch in a 7-0 romp against Motherwell in May 2016, will move to a Championship side to also get some first-team experience.

The promising frontman has had spells at Dumbarton and Alloa and Lennon believes another stint elsewhere will help his progress.

There is bound to be more comings and goings before the signing door is closed until January.
