Neil Lennon has singled out Vasilis Barkas and urged the goalkeeper to improve.

The Celtic keeper has struggled to find consistency since his summer move to Parkhead and Lennon has continued to change his starting No1 over the course of the season.

The Greece goalie was dropped for Celtic’s 2-0 win over Hamilton last night and Lennon has now confirmed that Scott Bain will get a run in the team.

On Barkas, Lennon said: “I don’t think Vasilis has settled. He’s not the presence at the minute that he can be

“I think he needs a bit of adaptation, more time. I don’t think he is up to the speed and physicality of the game.

“I made the decision to bring Scott back in, he has been knocking at the door. I think he has done OK, he was comfortable tonight.

“You will probably see the best of Vasilis as we go along, not just at this moment.

“I have spoken to him on a number of occasions over the course of the season. We’re hoping and expecting more from him as we go along.

“He understands, he is one of them who maybe suffered with the way life is at the minute.

“Sometimes you take it for granted that these guys are going to come in and adapt straight away, some take a bit longer and he is in that category.

“He has admitted on a few occasions that he probably hasn’t been at his best. He can improve his physicality, shot stopping and general influence around the box.

“He has good ability, I don’t think we have seen the best of him yet. Scott will continue in goal.”
