Celtic Boss Wanted Gordon Strachan Back

Celtic boss Neill Lennon has admitted that he was in support of a move to try and bring former Coventry City player and manager Gordon Strachan back to Parkhead.

Strachan had managed the Glasgow based side with some success and Celtic had made an attempt back in September to try and involve the Scot who has his family's Football Foundation in Rugby and a media career.

"Gordon is someone I respect totally and he wasn't averse to the idea but it never materialised," Lennon told BBC Scotland's Sportsound.

"It was an idea that we've bounced around for quite a while. We were pretty close to it.

"But it was almost eight weeks ago now that the decision was made, and we've moved on since then.

It is something that I'm not averse to, depending on who it is and whether the circumstances are right and whether we feel we need it."
