Neil Lennon believes Liverpool would rake in at least double the £75million they paid Southampton for Virgil van Dijk should they opt to sell the Dutchman in the future.

The interim Celtic boss famously plucked Van Dijk from relative obscurity at FC Groningen for £2.6m in the summer of 2013 and watched in admiration as he turned in a solid defensive display - and scored a dramatic late goal as Liverpool knocked Bayern Munich out of the Champions League in midweek.

Lennon has already gone on record stating his belief that Van Dijk, who was sold to Southampton for £13m after two years at Parkhead, is the best defender in world football at the moment and believes he would walk into the first team at any of the club game's recognised superpowers.

'You could double what Liverpool paid for him,' said Lennon.

' Lennon has often spoken of his surprise that no one else seemed to be trailing Van Dijk, pictured below with the Bhoys boss with the Premiership trophy in 2014, when he first appeared on Celtic's radar.

Van Dijk always gave the impression he was playing well within himself for most of his Celtic career.

Lennon believes there could still be a gear or two in reserve with the 27-year-old.
