With Neil Lennon on the verge of making a move to Hibernian, we take a look at three players he could look to sign off his former club Celtic.

Anthony Stokes

Anthony Stokes scores the first goal for Hibs

Stokes spent last season on loan with Hibernian, and he looks likely to be a transfer target of the Scottish Championship side.

Stokes made a positive impact at Easter Road last term, scoring five times in 13 appearances in the league.

The 27-year-old’s future is yet to be decided by Celtic, after they appointed Brendan Rodgers, but if he is made available then Hibs are likely to be at the front of the queue for the striker’s signature.

Emilio Izaguirre

Celtic's Emilio Izaguirre misses a penalty

The emergence of Kieran Tierney has forced Izaguirre out of Celtic’s first-team, and he now appears surplus to requirements at Parkhead.

Izaguirre was a consistent performer when Lennon was in charge at Celtic, and he would surely make a good signing for Hibs.

Charlie

Charlie Mulgrew scores the second goal for Celtic

Mulgrew’s future at Celtic is very much in doubt, with his contract due to expire in the next few weeks.

Although Mulgrew has stated that Brendan Rodgers wants to keep him with the Bhoys, the Scotland international is yet to be presented with a new deal.

If his contract does expire, then Hibs could make an ambitious move to reunite the 30-year-old with Lennon.
