Custom byline text:
When Peter Lawwell, chief executive of Celtic, sits down with manager Neil Lennon, his assistants and the scouting staff to discuss the squad for next season, there is scope for an extended session.
Lawwell talked of the campaign ahead after Celtic won the Clydesdale Bank Premier League title on Saturday, noting "there will be one or two coming in and one or two going out". This makes the close season sound routine but it will be far from that, and Lawwell's work on team matters has started. Jaroslaw Fojut, the 24-year-old Polish centre-back, has signed a pre-contract agreement but the quality and quantity of further reinforcements depends on by how much a large squad is trimmed and by the prices attracted for the "one or two going out".
