Celtic could do with a striker this summer, as Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths are their two senior players upfront.

Lennon has been asked about the prospect of Fletcher joining his side this summer.

The Celtic boss told The Glasgow Evening Times about Fletcher: “He is a good player. I am not going to confirm or deny that, I don’t want to talk about individuals.”
