CELTIC boss Neil Lennon has said he'll do everything within his powers to keep hold of Fraser Forster and Moi Elyounoussi for next season.

The Saints duo spent the campaign on loan with the Scottish giants and helped guide them to a League Cup triumph as well as the club's ninth SPL title in a row.

However, their temporary deals were cut short after it was decided to curtail the season because of the coronavirus crisis.

Despite this, Lennon wants to see the pair remain at Celtic and said he plans to hold talks with Saints.

Lennon told SunSport: “We’re hopeful they’ll be around but that’s a conversation we’ll have to have with Southampton and the players individually.

“In the main, we’d want to keep them if we could. It kept that continuity going rather than maybe going out and bringing other players in.

“If we could keep the services of those two, they know how we work and what the club is all about.

“They made really good contributions. Fraser was absolutely brilliant and Moey, up until the injury, was fantastic.”
