Danny Simpson to tryout for Celtic

Danny Simpson is set to be given a chance to prove his worth to the Scottish giants after Neil Lennon decided to give him a trial.

Danny Simpson was released by Leicester this summer after making only six league appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side. The former Manchester United academy graduate was part of the Leicester City side that ended up winning the Premier League under Claudio Ranieri just a few years ago.

For Celtic, the summer transfer window has been unusually quiet. The Bhoys have made only three signings this summer. Christopher Jullien was signed from Ligue 1 outfit Toulouse. Boli Bolingoli and Luca Connell were also signed.

However, Neil Lennon admits that the club could do with a bit of depth in the squad.

“The boys are doing a brilliant job at the minute, but they could do with a little bit of help in terms of strength in depth,” Lennon said according to The Daily Star.

“I think we’ll have something in the next few days hopefully.

“It might be a right-back, it might be a left-winger, it might be a centre-forward.

“Right-back is a priority, but we have a number of positions I’d like to strengthen like midfield and one or two attacking areas.

And Danny Simpson is the name that could potentially sign with the reigning Scottish champions. Reportedly, the English full back is going to spend the next week with the Glasgow giants on a trial.

And after winning a Premier League medal, Danny Simpson has all the attributes to become a really important member of the team.

With Celtic inching closer to the Champions League group stages following a 2-1 win over Bosnian giants Sarajevo last night, Danny Simpson is also going to get a chance to play in the competition as long as he impresses Neil Lennon.
