Celtic have been tipped to secure the back-up that is needed for the left flank despite having two bids for Alfie Doughty rejected by Charlton Athletic.

He is a good price, compared to Ben Davies at Preston who has been the subject of a rejected bid from Bournemouth at around £5million, and would provide decent back-up and competition to Greg Taylor – the proverbial no-brainer.

“They look desperate to get hold of him so we’ll see in the coming weeks but it looks like a transfer that I think will happen.” The fact that two bids have already been made show that he is a player that the recruitment team at Parkhead – and the gaffer – are keen to get their hands on and one that is a direct replacement for a former member of Lennon’s squad.

Does Doughty solve a lot of problems for Lennon?

When analysing the issue Neil Lennon currently faces on the left-hand side of his team, the former Rangers full-back said: “We’ve spoke about it before, they’re in the market for a left-sided player, obviously Bolingoli moving on to Turkey now, you’ve got Greg Taylor who’s there and he’s kind of the only one – even though James Forrest played on that side.

“They’re looking for a left sided player and he kind of ticks all the boxes – he’s got good pace, it’s a good price, I think, it’s under a million, room for improvement and still very, very young.

Jonny Hayes was a competent member of the squad over the past few seasons and had a versatility that suited the different formations that are used by the Hoops, Doughty has a similar flexibility and can operate anywhere on the left.
