Celtic

Lennon rules out Morrison exit

1st July 2019, 14:27 by James Mason

Celtic manager Neil Lennon insists he has no plans to let Liam Morrison depart the club this summer.

Lennon handed 16-year-old Morrison his Celtic debut in the second half of the 6-1 win over Pinkafeld last week and he could be thrown into action against St. Gallen on Tuesday evening.

The centre-back is said to have attracted interest from Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich and with the defender yet to sign a professional contract at Parkhead, the Bavarians could snap him up for a small compensation fee.

However, speaking in the Scottish Sun, Lennon responded to the rumours of a Morrison exit, insisting the young prospect will not be going anywhere in this transfer window.

"That's not going to happen. There is interest from Germany but Liam's our player and we want to develop him. We're not accepting any, or open to any, offers for him," he said.

"I think we're in negotiations over a new contract. It's too early to say with him but he's doing really well. He played well last Wednesday night. We're very pleased with his progress."
