Celtic manager Neil Lennon is adamant that he doesn't need an old head to help him out after it was revealed that the club had failed in their attempt to bring Stuart Baxter to Glasgow.
The Bhoys had hoped that they could use the experienced Finland manager in an advisory capacity but the Finnish FA have rejected the request.
Asked if he thought he needed any help, Lennon said in the build-up to his team's Champions League encounter with Braga: "It would depend on who the person is. It's something worth exploring but I don't see it as being essential.
"There are four or five other guys I could contact - people who have been in this position before."
Meanwhile, Aiden McGeady has flown to Russia to discuss a possible £9.5million move to Spartak Moscow, with Lennon adding: "He was a wee bit apprehensive about it but he's gone over to have a look at the facilities and the stadium and see what Moscow can offer him.
"Will my plans be affected if he doesn't go? Well, probably yes because I won't have nine-and-a-half million quid."
