Neil Lennon’s claim that “every player is for sale at the right price” is not what Celtic fans want to hear just before the start of the season, according to Frank McAvennie.

However, the former Hoops and St Mirren striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, agrees that every player has their price because they are a selling club.

Lennon claimed on Monday that “every player has a price” just a week before the English transfer window opens.

Football Insider understands price tags of £40million and £20million have been placed on Odsonne Edouard and Kristoffer Ajer respectively.

However, the Hoops boss revealed that the club have received no offers for any of their players to date.

When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on Lennon’s comments, McAvennie said: “There is a lot of things coming out of the woodwork at the moment.

“I know Lenny but he came out and said “everyone is for sale” – that is not what the fans want to hear, especially not in a season when we are going for 10.

“I understand what he is saying, that we are a selling club and every player has a price. What he is saying is right but it is not what the fans want to hear.

“There is a difference between “everyone is for sale” and “every player has their price”. The fans know that but it is not what you want to hear with the season kicking off in two weeks.”
