Ex-Chelsea and Everton winger Pat Nevin has suggested to The Scottish Sun that newly-appointed Hibernian manager Neil Lennon should try to sign players from his former club Celtic in the summer transfer window.

Lennon has been appointed the manager of Scottish Championship side Hibernian.

Hibs’ aim next season is to get promoted to the Scottish Premiership, and the former Celtic manager has been chosen as the man to guide the team to the Scottish top flight.

Former Scotland international winger Nevin has suggested that Lennon should try to use his connections at Celtic to recruit players in the summer transfer window.

The Edinburgh outfit signed 20-year-old midfielder Liam Henderson on a season-long loan deal from the Hoops in the summer of 2015 and brought in 27-year-old striker Anthony Stokes on loan in the January transfer window.

“They have got a manager who understands and knows the Scottish game, and understands what kind of club Hibernian is,” Nevin told The Scottish Sun. “With a bit of luck for Hibs fans, he’ll keep that good relationship with Celtic going.

“The players who played for Hibs from Celtic last season had a massive effect, particularly in that Cup Final.”

Celtic have a strong and big squad, and there will be some talented youngsters who will not be able to play regularly for the first team next season.

Perhaps it would be in the two clubs’ interest if those youngsters join Hibernian on loan from Celtic.
