Neil Lennon has revealed his Celtic squad could be forced to take wage cuts to save the Hoops financially during the coronavirus shutdown. 

All Celts players and management are currently self-isolating at home as Scottish football ground to a halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

And Parkhead boss Lenny has refused to rule out any possibility of cuts, despite being the wealthiest club in the country.

When quizzed on the issue on BBC Radio 5 Live, he said: “Yes. We’ll probably have a look at things at the end of April in terms of the club as a whole.

"Peter Lawwell and the board will review it then. At the minute, we are okay. For Scottish clubs, this is the time of the year when they are putting out season tickets.

"But obviously the general public are very wary and reluctant to part with their money. They don’t know what they are paying for yet and we still haven’t finished this season yet.

"We don’t know whether that’s going to happen or not. We need to get a decision sooner rather than later on that.There has to be a backstop date at some stage so we can start to plan ahead.

“We’re financially robust, but are still feeling the hit. We’ve been told by the chief medical officer here it’s going to be 12 to 13 weeks in this situation.

"So it’s really difficult to plan for the future and you have to prepare yourself as best you can for whatever the outcome is going to be.”

Yesterday we told how Newcastle were plotting a £30 million bid for Hoops ace Odsonne Edouard, but Lenny is hoping to keep his star asset long term.

He added: “The landscape has changed from where we were a month ago to now. There’s no doubt about that.

“It’s uncertain. Ideally you would like to keep your prized assets for at least another year anyway.

“If the market galvanises itself again, you could look at it then.

“There’s no question there’s going to be interest in him.

"But, ideally, we’d like to tie him down to another year on top of what he has already and keep him here.”
