No let up for Lennon
There will be no time to check the tour pictures for Neil Lennon as he searches for the players he wants. There is going to be no rest for Neil Lennon on his return from the clubs' four-game tour of the United States and Canada. He will be heading back to Parkhead and into transfer deal mode. he has already signed Joe Ledley, Efrain Juarez, Daryl Murphy, Cha Du-Ri and Charlie Mulgrew, while David James, Sol Campbell and Jimmy Bullard have all been attracting his interest. Gary Hooper, Liam Lawrence and Kelvin Wilson are also said to be on Lennon's radar - and the Northern Irishman is keen to do more business. Speaking from America he said: "My hands have been full over here. The bedlam will really start when we get back." Looking ahead, Lennon thinks new signing Juarez faces a race against time as he bids to face Braga in next week's Champions League qualifier. The 22-year-old Mexican midfielder met his new team-mates in Seattle on Sunday but is now back in Mexico attempting to cut through the red tape that will allow him to head to Glasgow next week. Lennon said: "Juarez is back home to sort out paperwork, his visa and his work permit. We're trying to rush that through and hopefully he'll be with us early next week and he will be in squad for Braga. He made a really good initial impression. His English is quite good which helps. We're excited about him and we're hoping he is as well. He's young too and if he does well there will be a re-sale value, although we want him to stay as long as he wants at the club and hopefully he will be a big player for us. We see him as part of the future."
