Neil Lennon has revealed he is in the market for players this window as he looks to strengthen his Celtic side.

The Hoops are 23 points off Rangers at the top of the Premiership table but Lennon still wants to improve his squad in a bid to do the unthinkable and claw back their rivals' lead.

While 10 in a row is still mathematically possible at this time, it does seem out of reach with Celts having gone their last four games without a victory. But their manager wants to bring in some players he feels can help the current crop out and win points for the team.

He said: "We are looking to bring players in. We are looking at a number of positions, a number of options and we think we are a bit of the way down the line with one or two deals so hopefully we will have something for you in the next few days.

"I don’t know if we will be spending money, we just maybe looking into one or two players on loan until the end of the season, bargains that we feel could be value for money and could make us better."

It comes as the Northern Irishman hit out at speculation about his job and his future at the club. A number of other managers, including Frank Lampard, Rafa Benitez and Eddie Howe have all been linked with the role at Parkhead, a position Lennon still resides in.

And he branded the rumours 'highly disrespectful' as he continues to chat with chief Peter Lawwell on a daily basis and feels comfortable in his job.

He said: "It is highly disrespectful but a lot of managers go through the same things. I don’t think it is right, I don’t think there is any foundation to it either so I just ignore it.

"I speak to Peter more or less every day about club duties, about the team, the transfer window, so I am just carrying on as normal."
