Liverpool transfers: Neil Lennon dismisses Georgios Samaras rumours
Liverpool transfers: Neil Lennon dismisses speculation linking Celtic striker Georgios Samaras with a switch to Anfield
Neil Lennon has dismissed speculation linking Celtic striker Georgios Samaras with a January switch to Liverpool.
The Greece international won the crucial penalty in the Hoops’ 2-1 victory over Spartak Moscow in the Champions League group stage on Wednesday as the SPL side qualified for the last 16.
Samaras has scored seven goals in 18 appearances for the Scottish champions this term, prompting reported interest from Brendan Rodgers, who is looking to strengthen his Liverpool frontline.
But Lennon, who is also fending off interest in Gary Hooper, is confident the former Manchester City forward will stay at Parkhead.
“It’s just speculation, someone taking a flyer,” said Lennon.
“I don’t think he’d be wanting to leave in too much of a hurry. The fact we’re through [to the Champions League last 16] is the difference.”
