Lennon will not snub Kris

Have your say

Celtic manager Neil Lennon would not let Kris Boyd’s Rangers background sway him if he was to consider making a bid for the former Light Blues striker.

Boyd this week terminated his contract with Turkish club Eskisehirspor following a dispute over unpaid wages.

Lennon, who denied he had made an official approach for Dundee United’s Scott Allan, addressed the question of Boyd’s availability by saying: “He is a proven goalscorer.

“I don’t know how much football he has played of late but he is a player with a great record and any player like that would interest me.

“You are talking hypothetically here and are starting to speculate already, but regards to that question (would it be a problem that Boyd had played for Rangers?) no, I can’t see it being a problem.

“But again, I don’t want to talk about players coming and going until January.”
