Hearts luck gets worse, Emilio Izaguirre ‘staying put’, Hibs boss hails new faces, Neil Lennon and Jackie McNamara clash, and more.

Managers clash

Neil Lennon and Jackie McNamara clashed at the end of Celtic’s 1-0 win over Dundee United yesterday, with a heated exchange before they left the pitch.

Afterwards Lennon took issue with the state of the pitch at Tannadice and also Gavin Gunning’s challenge on Mikael Lustig. (Sunday Express)

Lenon fails in Tomlin bid

Neil Lennon looks to have failed in his bid to add Peterborough’s attacking midfielder Lee Tomlin to the Celtic squad.

Celtic’s interest has not been welcomed by Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson. “The third bid arrived during the game,” he said. “If that’s how Celtic want to do business that’s up to them but it didn’t do Lee any favours.”

Fenlon puts faith in new faces

Hibs boss Pat Fenlon believes that new faces at the club are the key to igniting the attack for the Easter Road side.

Fenlon says Paul Heffernan and Abdellah Zoubir will help Hibs raise their game. (Sunday Express)

Izaguirre ‘staying put’

Neil Lennon says Emilio Izaguirre will not be leaving Celtic, after reports linked him with a £2.5m move to Everton.

The Celtic boss says he continues to be impressed by the Honduran internationalist. (Various)

Hearts luck worsens

Hearts keeper Jamie MacDonald hopes the team’s luck will change soon after Jamie Hamill was sent off during yesterday’s loss to Inverness.

It comes after Danny Wilson and Kevin McHattie were recently sent off, and MacDonald says it sometimes feels like the world is against them. (Sunday Post)
