Celtic fans react to reports Neil Lennon could move for Kilmarnock's Stephen O'Donnell

Manager of Celtic Neil Lennon walks on the pitch before the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Aberdeen and Celtic at Pittodrie Stadium on May 04, 2019 in Aberdeen, Scotland.

The Kilmarnock right-back was on Celtic's books as a youngster.

Stephen O'Donnell of Kilmarnock looks on during the Scottish Ladbrokes Premiership match between Kilmarnock and Hamilton at Rugby Park on October 27, 2018 in Kilmarnock, United Kingdom.

Celtic fans are reacting to reports the Bhoys could make a move for Stephen O'Donnell in the summer transfer window.

The Sun reports that Kilmarnock are ready to cash in on the Scotland right-back, who has yet to sign an extension to the contract that expires next summer.



And the newspaper speculates that Neil Lennon may be keen if he is appointed the permanent manager of Celtic.

O'Donnell was a youth team player at Parkhead during Lennon's first spell in charge of the Bhoys.

Jeremy Toljan of Celtic looks on prior to the UEFA Europa League Round of 32 Second Leg match between Valencia v Celtic at Estadio Mestalla on February 21, 2019 in Valencia, Spain.

And with three senior right-backs, Jeremy Toljan, Mikael Lustig and Cristian Gamboa, seemingly on their way out of Celtic this summer, targeting the 27-year-old would make sense.

But what do those of a Bhoys persuasion make of the rumour?

This is what they're saying on Twitter...







@PedInnes7: P*** offf. Absolutly f****** NOT


O'Donnell left Celtic to join Partick Thistle in 2011 and moved on to Luton Town before his return to Scottish football with Kilmarnock two years ago.

Should Celtic make a move for the Kilmarnock right-back?
