On Tuesday, Celtic manager Neil Lennon confirmed reports out of the Slovan Bratislava camp that the Hoops have held discussions over the future of Andraz Sporar.

The Slovenia international has been on fire this season, scoring 20 goals in 26 games, with five of those coming in the Europa League.

“There was talks I believe yesterday,” Lennon said at a press conference.

“He’s one of a number of options we are talking to at the minute. There’s no further progress on that one.

“I think the team can get better,” Lennon said. “There is more to come from them.

“They’re still young a lot of them – your Ajers, Frimpongs, Mikey Johnstons are all teens or early 20s. You’ve got players on top of that who are consistently underrated by some.

“What we’ve done in Europe this year has been spectacular and what we’ve done domestically has been almost perfect.”

Sporar would not come cheap as the Slovakian side claim they will reject all offers of less than £6m.
