Lennon keen to keep hold of Brown

Celtic manager Neil Lennon will reject any approaches for captain Scott Brown as he bids to tie the midfielder to a new contract.

The Scotland international is out of contract at Parkhead next summer and has attracted interest due to his strong displays last season.

Lennon said: "We opened preliminary talks with Scott at the end of last season.

"He's on record as saying he wants to stay at Celtic and that is something I'm very pleased about.

"I'm hoping to get him tied down.

"I wouldn't be surprised if there's interest as he was magnificent last season. "I'd be unwilling to sell him and I'd rebuff any offers."
