Celtic boss Lennon hopeful of new Joe Ledley deal – 'We have made him an offer'

Neil Lennon remains hopeful that Joe Ledley will sign a new deal at Celtic.

The Wales midfielder is out of contract in the summer and has been offered an improved contract by the Parkhead club but negotiations have reportedly stalled.

We have made him an offer, Joe is aware of that as is his agent and we are waiting on them.

He seems happy here, his performance last week will have done his confidence a world of good because he has been a wee bit curtailed this season by injuries.

We know how good a players he is, that's why we have offered him a new deal.

My gut feeling is, looking at his body language over the last week or so, I'd like to think he would stay on.

Lennon: Ajax game is crucial

Celtic manager Neil Lennon is convinced his side can create chances at the Amsterdam Arena in their "pivotal" Champions League clash.

The game in Amsterdam is pivotal.

It's a huge game and we started working on it - the team selection and the way we'll play - as soon as Saturday's game finished.

If we can play like we did in Milan, then we've got a good chance.

But you can never predict these games. Ajax are a class side, very fluid with the ball and they will create chances, but I think we can create chances too.

We'll have to be positive, and to get something out of the game would give us a great chance in the last two games.

UEFA reject Brown appeal

Celtic captain Scott Brown has lost an appeal against his extended Champions League ban, manager Neil Lennon has confirmed.

Brown was banned for an additional two matches on top of the automatic one-game suspension for being sent off in the Group H clash against Barcelona on October 1, punishment for flicking a leg out at Neymar after fouling the Brazilian.

The Scotland midfielder, who missed the home game against Ajax last month, was in Switzerland today to plead his case to UEFA's appeals committee but Lennon said: "It has been turned down. We didn't win the appeal. It is disappointing. We thought we had a good case."
